Penzance Penlee House Gallery and Museum, Cornwall


  • Located in Penzance, Cornwall, South West England, England
  • This is where you'll find some of the most famous paintings produced by the Newlyn School of Art. It's a relatively small gallery but the quality of the work is superb. The subject matter of the paintings offers a great insight into local life in the 19th and 20th centuries. Make sure you browse the museum rooms upstairs. There's a particularly fine collection of items and information boards relating to the history and prehistory of The Land's End Peninsula (The Penwith Peninsula). If you want to get to know this part of the UK, we'd argue that the Penlee House Gallery and Museum is essential visiting. Highly recommended
