Market stalls selling local produce, food stands with world and Cornish foods, a fantastic local parade, live music, local beers, spirits and wines, a firework display, a vibrant art scene and ancient Pagan rituals…all part of Penzance’s popular Golowan Festival.
It’s also Tom’s home town and the base for most of our swimming holidays. In terms of open water swimming Penzance has it all. Secluded hidden beaches and coves, nearby coastlines that point in every direction of the compass guaranteeing safe and stunning swims, world class chefs and restaurants, the countries biggest art deco lido, iconic swims like St Michael’s Mount, Porthcurno, Porthleven, Carbis Bay… A wealth of swimming options.
We’d strongly recommend either booking early (as accommodation fills up very quickly in Penzance) or booking your accommodation in Hayle.
