Cornwall South West & Map
Just a few of the many things to do and places to visit;
St Michaels Mount: Set just offshore of the ancient town of Marazion. Come and walk the causeway at low tide and visit the castle, shops and tearooms.
Penlee House Museum and Gallery (Morrab Road): Founded in 1839 it features a programme of changing exhibitions of historic West Cornwall including works of the now famous Newlyn School such as Langley, Forbes and Garstin.
Mousehole: Dylan Thomas once called Mousehole (Mowzel) ‘one of the prettiest villages in England’. It was once home to the Penlee Lifeboat where so tragically all hands were lost in a storm in 1981. Dolly Pentreath also lived here, the last native speaker of the Cornish language. She died in 1777. Visit Mousehole during Sea Salt and Sails week, even travel down at Christmas to see the Christmas lights, or stroll down early one Sunday summer evening into the village to hear the Mousehole Male Choir sing at the Harbour side.
Penzance: The market town of Penzance contains houses of historic interest along with galleries and museums. Here too, was the home and work place of the eminent scientist Humphry Davy, revered today by a statue at the top of the town. Visit Chapel Street with its antique shops and bookstalls. Call in at the Union Hotel (it was here that it is said that from the Minstrels Gallery the Death of admiral Lord Horatio Nelson was first announced) or, stop for refreshment and savour the food and friendly holiday atmosphere at the oldest Public House in town, The Turks Head.
