Have just returned from a short weekend. We visited a number of places which were very nice. However, Penzance was quite an eye opener to say the least . We all thought it was absolutely dreadful and I could not wait to leave. Its a shame as I imagine years ago it must have been a nice holiday resort. It almost as if all the people you would not want to live in a place caught a train to Cornwall and got off at the last stop which was Penzance. And I thought Torquay had its problems.
