Penlee House is an appealing Italianate villa, exuding intimacy and ease.

Set in semi-tropical gardens, it was built in 1865 for JR Branwell, a wealthy merchant related to the Brontë family. In 1949 it was was taken over by Penzance Town Council and transformed into a district museum. Successive remodellings and extensions have turned it into a lively and popular place, with excellent space for its collections as well as temporary exhibitions, of which there are around five a year.
