    Facts about England

    Holy Headland

    Penzance derives its name from the Cornish Pen Sans, meaning holy headland - most likely in reference to a chapel that stood on the western head of the harbour in the middle ages

    Attractions

    The Lost Gardens of Heligan

    An absolutely beautiful place where you could easily spend an entire day. This is a must-visit for any gardening boffin and if you have to make a choice between here and the nearby Eden Project, this should win hands down!

    A beautiful one acre private garden with a huge variety of flowers, and shrubs in different 'rooms' - and also a collection of rare fowl. Delicious home made cakes and drinks are available from a small cafe to enjoy in the garden. Well worth a visit!

    The world's largest collection of witchcraft related artefacts and regalia. Definitely informative and interesting.

    Places To Eat

    Boscastle Farm Shop Restaurant

    All food in the restaurant (cafe) is prepared onsite with mainly fresh local ingredients. There are also yummy treats from local specialty and artisan fine-food producers in the farm shop.

    The Lost & Found Cafe & Vintage Shop

    The front rooms of this historic Chapel Street are a hip vintage store, selling upcycled furniture and collectables. In the back is the cafe and dining areas, continuing the eclectic vintage theme. I didn't get a chance to try anything from the menu, but their coffee and counter food are supurb and the staff are very friendly.

    A perfect foodie mix of healthy/vegetarian/organic/seasonal and deliciously decadent. Also has a lovely outside dining area for summer.

    Reminding the world that the sandwich was Britain's greatest contribution to the culinary arts - and the British can still make them as good as anyone. Souli also do great coffee and their other food looks nice too - but it is the sandwiches you want to go for. The fillings are varied but none will disappoint. It is a bit more expensive than your average takeaway lunch, but you certainly get what you pay for!
