Drinks & Nightlife
You actually can't beat Wetherspoons (The Tremenhere to the right of Lloyds Bank) for value for money. 2 meals plus 2 drinks approximately £15!! The food is pretty good (the best veggie burgers anywhere!) and a great 'value for money' breakfast. The place needs a little bit of a revamp so don't expect the Ritz! Lovely helpful staff though.

The Exhange is brilliant, always a fascinating (and unusual) exhibition on and often workshops which anyone can attend. Also a really lovely friendly café with a limited but really nice menu. Best salads and tortilla's in town! Mostly vegetarian and vegan. Friday nights are supper nights and really worth while, a lovely casual evening with a set 3 course supper at £15 a head (includes glass of wine). Evening is usually themed, ie: sushi supper, Eastern, Moroccan, Italian, French etc etc. But always, always a great night! ps. Best staff anywhere. Tel: 01736 363715

Art gallery and museum in Penlee Gardens. Always a great exhibition of Penzance through the years and a really nice café with a terrace for the warm weather. Just next door to the museum is the remembrance garden which is also really worth a visit. A very tranquil place for a picnic or just a ponder.

Even if you don't see a show, the Minack is definitely worth a visit. It's the most amazing place with an amazing history and the views are spectacular. Nice café on site but you do have to pay a small entrance fee to go inside, but once in you can walk around the theatre too. Booking in advance is often essential. Tel: 01736 810181

NB. Closed on Saturdays. Owned by the National Trust St Michaels Mount is well worth the visit. The castle is excellent and the surrounding gardens are beautiful. Check tide time if you want to walk across on the causeway, or take the boat. St Michaels Mount is situated opposite the Charter town of Marazion which has some lovely shops, pubs and cafes. To get to Marazion take the number 2 bus from Penzance Bus station, or, walk via the coastal path from behind the bus station. It's about 3 miles and takes approx 1 hour

Probably our favourite beach (well used to be) It is pretty tricky getting down on to it these days, you do need to be sure footed and fairly fit for the climb down and back. Tides can be high and currents strong. It is a beautiful beach though. I wouldn't recommend this beach for families.
