Penzance is the most westerly part of Cornwall. Penzance is thought to have got its name from the ancient Cornish word "pen sans" which means "Holy Headland". It's also thought to have been the first town in the UK in which tobacco was smoked! Sir John Hawkins brought the foreign leaves to England in 1564 and stayed for some time in the Dolphin Inn on the quay.

Almost surrounded by the sea, the area has many features such as Lands End, with nearby Sennen Cove and Carn Towan. On the cliffs to the south is the Minack Theatre at nearby Porthcurno close to Trethewey. Along with Marazion, Perranuthnoe, Rosudgeon, Goldsithney, Crowlas, Paul and Newlyn, Penzance overlooks Mount's Bay with St Michael's Mount castle and buildings as its most prominent feature. Picturesque fishing villages are also dotted around the coast such as Newlyn, Mousehole, Sennen and the Coves of Lamorna. Other rural villages near St Just and the far west cliff top moors include Pendeen, Ludgvan, Boscaswell and Botallack with some more inland villages such as Sancreed and St Buryan which have their own quintessential charm.
