About Penzance Railway Station

Penzance Railway Station is the main train station serving the port town of Penzance, Cornwall. It was opened in the mid-19th century by the West Cornwall Railway, as a terminus for its line from Redruth. It's undergone several improvement projects over the years, most recently in 2013 when its roof was refurbished.

Potter around Penzance

Penzance is a historic port town on the south-western tip of Cornwall, boasting one of the mildest climates you'll find anywhere in a UK coastal town. Its striking concentration of palm trees and other subtropical plants, and the laid-back beach culture which you'll sense all over the town, makes Penzance an excellent base for exploring the rest of Cornwall. Local attractions, including the Penlee House Museum, St Michael's Mount, and Morrab Gardens, will give you an even better sense of the peaceful spirit of the place.

Traverse the South West Coast Path

Cornwall is home to a 300-mile stretch of the South West Coast Path, the longest waymarked footpath in England. A stunning area of natural beauty, the Cornwall section of the South West Coast Path has short and easy walks for families and couples, all the way up to day-long treks for the most adventurous hikers. Whatever your taste for walking, you're sure to remember the incredible, tranquil vistas that stretch out around you along the South West Coast Path.
