Penzance is situated dramatically above Mounts Bay, and has been the last stop on the main line from London since the days of the Great Western Railway. The town feels authentic with its winding streets, old shopping arcades, and grand seafront promenade. Its sights and activities include Penlee House Gallery and Museum, displaying paintings by artists of the Newlyn School and hosts regular exhibitions exploring the history of art in Cornwall. The Trinity House National Lighthouse Center explores the history of lighthouses that have helped guide ships along the treacherous Cornish coastline. The busy fishing harbor of Newlyn on the western edge of Penzance was the center of the Newlyn School of artists in the late 19th century, and today the Newlyn Art Gallery displays some of their finest works.
