Visit Penzance and the surrounding villages and stay in bed & breakfast accommodation:

Penzance, Cornwall, was the first Cornish town to become a resort. It has a promenade; rather a grand one, backed by Victorian and some Regency terraces, looking to a fine bay and St Michael's Mount.

It grew on the tin trade and, perhaps, smuggling. In 1595 Spaniards burned what little there was of it. It rebuilt itself energetically, and though ravaged by both sides in the Civil War became in the 19th century a stannary town. In 1769 its mayor was well known to be a smuggler. In it, as in Camborne and Redruth, mining problems stimulated science; of the several notable scientists and engineers it has produced, the greatest was Humphry Davy (17781829), world-famous chemist as well as inventor of the miner's safety lamp for which he is generally known.

The town has few outstanding buildings the 1836 pillared market hall in the main street behind a statue of Humphry Davy is the most impressive. The Morrab municipal gardens are admirable, containing a modern recreation room for people over 60. Museums include: the Geological (its Royal Geological Society was founded in 1814) in the Municipal Buildings opposite the Information Bureau, and the Penlee containing local archaeological finds.

Just North of Madron (l½ miles North West), and about ½ mile down a footpath to the East is what was once perhaps the most famed of Cornwall's holy wells.

About 1½ miles North East of Penzance town centre, Gulval's churchyard is thick with sub-tropical plants. Gulval is an interesting example of a moneyed Victorian attempt to make a pretty village.
