Silversea Expedition Cruises A PENZANCE

PENZANCE

This popular seaside resort in western Cornwall occupies a commanding position at the northwest corner of Mount’s Bay. Due to this strategic location, the town was frequently raided during the Middle Ages. In the 16th century, Spanish assailants destroyed most of the original town and the majority of the old buildings remaining today date from the 18th century. Over the centuries, Penzance has served a number of important functions. View more

Among them, as tin shipping port for the Roman Empire and medieval Europe, passenger terminal for emigrants bound for the New World, fresh-flower and fish dispatch point for London and, most recently, as a popular holiday destination. The dominant style you will see in Penzance today is Georgian and regal Regency. Along the Western Promenade stand 18th- and 19th-century townhouses, while the Barbizon, an 18th-century fish market, has been transformed into a lively arts and crafts center. But the most interesting part is the ancient cobblestoned quarter that lies at the junction of Chapel Street and Market Jew, where much of the flavor of Penzance’s seafaring is preserved. There are a number of historic buildings, including the 18th-century Union Hotel, the Victorian Market House and the Penlee Museum. The most impressive attraction in the vicinity of Penzance is St. Michael’s Mount. Its huge medieval castle and abbey dominate a granite outcrop in Mount’s Bay. At low tide the site can be reached on foot via a rocky causeway; at other times, a boat ride is required from the mainland. Pier Information The ship is scheduled to anchor off Penzance. Guests will be taken ashore via the ship’s tender. The town center can be reached via a 5-minute walk. Taxis for trips farther afield can be found at the train station within a 10-minute walk from the tender pier. Shopping Shops in the town center offer art and souvenir items and bric-a-brac. Most shops are open from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.The local currency is the pound. Cuisine This popular resort has no lack of eateries, ranging from a number of typical local pubs to trendy restaurants on Chapel Street. Seafood and usual tourist fare are widely available.
