Chapel Street is the most interesting part of Penzance when it comes to shopping. It has a wonderful selection of various unique shops mostly to do with antiques and the architecture of most of the buildings are beautiful. Recommended.

Has that small village feel but a great variety of shops. Easy parking by the waterfront and charm in all of the surrounding streets. Not high end shops but great selection of all types of shopping.

We wandered along Chapel Street several times during our visit and loved the variety of shops to be found there, in particular a curio, antique-type place with fascinating objects in the window.

We visited this street after looking for things to do on Trip advisor. We see all different types of houses and the egyptian house was really different. Nice street to stroll along from the Town centre to the promenade

There are so many attractive shops in Chapel Street but the highlights for me were the antique centre and a quality second hand book shop.

Penzance was a bit disappointing. Just the usual high street shops. I had expected lots of small local gifty shops and plenty of pirate souvenirs. Would not return but atleast i found a free parking space which is rare for cornwall.
