Very attractive and intresting building, though i know very little about it. I have seen it many times as i walk past but i almost forget its there sometimes.
we walked along chapel street after the shops were shut at the end of a busy day. The facade of the shop was quite remarkable and we enjoyed the view from outside. Don't know anything about the interior. It was lovely to look at from the outside
Stayed in the 3rd floor apartment with 12yr old grand daughters. Lovely accommodation with breathtaking views of St.Michaels Mount from the bay window in the lounge. Apartment was a good size and reasonably priced. Location was excellent for all we wanted to do. It was clean and tidy. Whilst we chose to eat out there is a nicely appointed kitchen.... More
the façade of this beautiful but bizarre building was commissioned in 1835 when all things Egyptian were the rage.It is a real eccentricity but one of the delights of travelling around the Cornish countryside.
On a brief business trip to Penzance I stumbled across the Egyptian building in Penzance. I had heard about it but nothing could prepare me for how totally breathtaking and unusual this building is. I hope to stay there one day in the flat over the shop. Well placed for pubs & restaurants & shops - you can see it... More
I probably take this place for granted, because I walk past it so often. It is an odd building, and worth walking along to look at - that is all you're doing though - you don't go in it. Well, you can go in the excellent (if pricey) shop 'Pure Nuff Stuff' that sells hand made soaps etc.
Interesting building to look at, but does not look authentic to me in my opinion. Tiny tiny little shop inside where they make soap-would fit two people in the shop & it's full!..Flats to let up stairs, & that's about it. If i passed the building in the street i would have thought 'Oh that's different' but not the way... More
If you can walk past you should as it's pretty striking. We didn't go inside the shop (although Nuff Stuff products are fab) but enjoyed the exterior as a little surprise when walking down Chapel Street.
