Services & Information
Shopping in Penzance is centred around three streets, Market Jew Street, the historic Chapel Street and Causeway Head, making up most of the retail space in the town. All three streets branch off from the distinctive domed roof of Lloyds bank, which contains the town clock. Originally Chapel Street was the towns centre of commerce, but over time Market Jew Street and Causeway head evolved into the Penzance we know and love today. The market, located at the top of Causeway Head lends its name (Thursday Market) to Market Jew street. The right to hold this market was granted by King Henry IV, which acted as a catalyst for the future growth & success of the town.
