The coastal towns of Penzance & Newlyn are joined by a promenade which stretches the seafront between the Jubilee Pool at the Eastern end and Newlyn to the West. The ancient castle of St Michaels Mount rises out of the sea and is visible from the walk. We will explore the fishing port of Newlyn where all sea level is measured from. We will take some great pictures for Instagram and will tell you about some secret & historical spots. We will also visit a famous ice cream shop and some great local fish & artisan food shops. We will walk past art galleries, and skate parks. The views are amazing and the smell of the sea is strong. Meet in Newlyn - shop and explore - then walk back along the prom past Englands only outdoor saltwater lido, the historic bustling port of Penzance pointing out the historic features and stories of artists, ship wrecks, secret beaches and pirates along the way.
Penzance is my home town. I went to school here & know the area very well. I went to university in London & qualified & practised as a lawyer, bought a house and lived there for years. We moved back to Cornwall & had a family, now have 2 teenagers a bit and a girl. In 2002 we started letting out our family places & hosting guests. I really enjoy hosting & sharing great (and non tourist) places to go. To help ensure guests have the best experience I made guides that had the best places to go/eat/see. The places that locals like to keep to themselves. The tour will show you the best & non touristy places rich in history & culture. I am a Superhost & am passionate about what I do. There are a team of three of us taking the tour which gives us flexibility. You will have a fun time because we keep it real and will show you the best bits.
Famous fresh Ice cream
I will show you the places, shops, restaurants, galleries that us locals like to keep to themselves. After shopping and exploring Newlyn & it's harbour and artistic heritage , we will take you from Newlyn to Penzance along the famous prom and the sea front, passing the Englands only outdoor saltwater lido.
Walking is on the flat - of interest for those who want to shop where the locals shop and walk where the locals walk. Newlyn is a bustling working fishing port - full of artistic & maritime history.
