We just briefly saw part of Penzance which I only know of because of the musical from many years ago, The Pirates of Penzance. We only walked down one street really, had dinner at a pub and then caught a bus back to St Ives.
But settled for dinner here. It was full of nautical decorations. My main memory here was of two little girls running around going into dark halls and scaring themselves saying they had seen ghosts. One of the waitresses sneaked up and scared them.
