Penzance



Penzance is an ancient market town and is only ten miles from Land's End. The name Penzance comes from the Cornish language and means "Holy Headland".



Both a market town and fishing town Penzance is a popular tourist destination. The sea front and harbour attract visitors and the town has a long promenade and busy shopping area. This is Cornwall's largest westerly town.



Penzance has a long history of smugglers and wreckers. Gilbert & Sullivan named their production "The Pirates of Penzance" after the town.
