Penzance is easy to reach, being at the end of the London to Penzance railway line. The town makes for an interesting holiday rail trip in Cornwall, and the station is near both harbour and town on the seafront. The ferry service to the Isles of Scilly runs from here, and there used to be a heliport here as well, but sadly no more. It is now a Sainsbury's.
The town has an interesting history, and prospered from the 16th century on, having taken over from the nearby Marazion with its new markets and harbour. Chapel Street is well worth a visit.
