Where To Visit When Staying In Penzance - The Isles of Scilly

There are many Hotels in Penzance, but our location overlooking the harbour makes us an ideal choice if you are considering catching the Scillionain to visit the Scilly Isles. We are only a minute's walk away and they are considered by many to be 'the must see attraction' when down this way.

Although close to Cornwall, island life is a simpler, kinder and more peaceful way of life. There's a certain quality of life here, long lost to many other parts of the UK. There are five inhabited islands -- St Mary's (the largest), St Agnes, Bryher, Tresco and St Martin's - and countless uninhabited islands to explore. Not only are the entire Isles of Scilly an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, but they are also home and workplace for just over 2,200 people.

Things to do in Cornwall

Here at The Abbey Hotel we are often asked by our guests for recommendations for things to do, well this short aerial trip around a few of the most iconic attractions such as St Michael's Mount, the Minack Theatre, Land's End, Tintagel Castle and the Eden Project will definitely provide inspiration.
