Will you have a car or be using public transport?
Penzance doesn't offer so much but has better transport links.
Pendeen is close to the Cornwall coast path, so lots of lovely walking close by.
Also if you are interested in Cornwalls mining heritage, you have Geevor and Levant mines very close both which are good visitor attractions.
The coast road to St Ives from there is a lovely drive if you have a car or indeed take a bus.
If you are walking on the coast path with your dog keep it on a lead. There are lots of opportunities for chasing rabbits and it has been known for dogs to go off the cliff edge with disastrous consequences.
And adder bites, another reason to keep the dog on a lead on the coast paths.
My friend's dog got bitten by an adder while on the dunes at Gwithian. You can't be too careful particularly when it's warm.
There is a good gallery of many local artists on the harbour that is arcade style that you will be able to walk round even with your dog with you. A walk round "The Island" in St Ives would be good too with beautiful views all around. There are lots of dog friendly eating places in St Ives so you should be fine.
Penzance offers you a fantastic walk along the front to Jubilee Pool. Again, lovely views over to St Michael's Mount. If you haven't been before I would suggest a trip to Marazion as it is beautiful and not too far from Penzance. Dogs are welcome on St Michael's Mount (National Trust) as long as they are kept on a lead.
I hope this helps.
I hope you have a lovely holiday.
Thank you all, your input is very much appreciated! And yes, we are going by car, trying to see as much as possible in one week but save some time to chillax too🌞
The Penlee Gallery at Penzance is excellent, with a collection of Newlyn School work and various temporary exhibitions
Thank you Sandy1949 🌺
