By car: When you enter Penzance, follow the one-way system past the train station and take the left-hand lane past the Wharfside shopping centre and the harbour. Follow the road onto the promenade, past the Jubilee Pool and turn right at The Lugger Hotel up Queen Street. At the top of Queen Street take the first left past The Globe pub and Cornwall Contemporary art gallery. We are a few metres down, on the left.
