Romanticised in a lively 19th-century Operetta by Gilbert and Sullivan which was first performed in Paignton, Devon in 1879, Penzance, was once a West Country port of considerable merit. These days, the picturesque harbour is still here, and the resort in its 'jewel-like' setting in beautiful Mount's Bay, is a tourist destination of immense charm and olde-worlde character. Special features of the town are discovered on a walk around the busy town centre. In Market Jew Street you can see the handsome Market House with its classical Ionic columns, completed almost 167 years ago. Olde-world Chapel Street, shows the fanciful Egyptian House built in the 1820's, the house is now owned by the National trust. The 14th-century Turks Head Inn is of interest, so to is the awe-inspiring tower above the beautiful church of St.Mary the Virgin. Amidst these historic buildings is a feast of attractive shops, inns and tempting sea-food restaurants. It is a jolly town with a year round holiday atmosphere, where everyone is made to feel welcome. Between the town and the sea front lie the peaceful Penlee memorial Gardens and the wildly beautiful Morab Gardens. Both are full of interest with magical displays of vivid flowers and exotic, sub-tropical plants at every season of the year. In these fragrant gardens, you really can enjoy a quiet after dinner stroll, breathing deep of delicious, fresh sea air. A forest of tall masts fill the busy harbour and bay during the heady days of summer. The sands too, are full of families soaking up the sun, swimming or, simply relaxing watching the world go by. Other attractions in the town include a lovely open air pool in a romantic art-deco design and Penlee House Art Gallery and Museum.
