Visit Penryn

An ancient market town, Penryn is steeped in history and culture.


Situated along the Penryn river, just one mile away from the maritime port of Falmouth, Penryn was once a thriving port for tin and copper exports.

Nowadays Penryn is mostly residential, but the old streets have some beautiful architecture dating back to Tudor, Jacobean and Georgian times.

The town boasts a good museum, great waterside cafes and great travel links.
