I remember when there were pirates everywhere in Penzance. Sadly this is no longer the case. We found this while out for a drive. The kids loved it! The only downside is you can’t take your dog onboard. But if you’ve got kids definitely worth...More

To be honest if your on holiday in Penzance, boarding a boat and buying something piratey is a box tick for sure. The reality is a small vessel sitting in the harbour with overpriced cheap pirate themed items in a crammed space with bored staff...More

We really enjoyed our visit to the pirate shop, the entrance going down from the deck added excitement! It makes wondering around the shops a bit more interesting for kids such a good idea. It added to our day in Penzance.
