We visited this street after looking for things to do on Trip advisor. We see all different types of houses and the egyptian house was really different. Nice street to stroll along from the Town centre to the promenade

There are so many attractive shops in Chapel Street but the highlights for me were the antique centre and a quality second hand book shop.

Penzance was a bit disappointing. Just the usual high street shops. I had expected lots of small local gifty shops and plenty of pirate souvenirs. Would not return but atleast i found a free parking space which is rare for cornwall.

If you go nowhere else in Penzance town take a walk down Chapel Street and have a look at the architecture - an impressive road.

Good range of interesting shops, nothing High Street chain here, apart from the little Coop, good range of pubs and eateries, excellent butchers and some good cafes too. Busier at the top of the street where you will find a wonderful Indian takeaway across the...More

Many visits to Penzance Chapel Street which is our favourite place to stay. Close to good pubs and restaurants, some with live music and all within easy reach of our accomodation. Historically interesting too. Would recommend the Penzance Town Walk which includes Chapel street and...More
