  • Atmospheric site. Particularly good for those interested in prehistoric archaeology. The site is exposed so best on a good day.
  • Interesting to check it out if you'd like to know how your ancestors(British) lived.
  • Interesting to see the remains of the houses from such an early time. Wonderful views.
  • We went here - whilst on our honeymoon - instead of Lands End. This was because it's commercialised like Disneyland. 😝 Would love to go back! 😎
  • Enjoyable visit. I would have liked to know how much of it was original and how much has been reconstructed. I may have missed this information?

Where to stay in Penzance

B&B, inns, and hotels along the narrow streets of the city center provide a convenient location for reaching the harbor and the city's other main attractions. Luxury resorts and four star hotels are typically found near the water and the Granite Coast Walk, while less expensive lodging is farther inland. Rental properties, such as cottages situated between St. Ives and Penzance, offer views and city access.
