Penryn is a convenient centre from which to visit much of west and mid-cornwall and it is largely overlooked by the tourist industry, unlike many other towns and village in the area.
The beautiful Helford River is nearby, and the towns of Falmouth, Helston and Truro are very close. The area also offers a wide variety of self-accommodation. There are lovely sandy beaches with a short distance and many walks through woodland and river banks.
