Located on the western edge of Penzance, Newlyn is home to the largest fleet of fishing boats in the South of England.

Newlyn, is clustered around the harbour, with its original quay curling around a few small boats on the western side and the much larger quays in the centre and on the eastern side of the harbour.

The bustle and activity of Newlyn gives the visitor a quick glimpse into a hard-working industry. On a road leading back from the harbour, you will find the Pilchard Museum.

Established to show how this small fish - once the major product of the local industry - was processed and packed for shipment to destinations all over the world.
