WELCOME TO PENZANCE HARBOUR
Penzance Harbour consists of a Wet Dock with a hydraulic ram and gate, a drying Harbour, Albert Pier, West Pier, North Pier, Lighthouse Pier and South Pier together with a lighthouse.
There are facilities for recreational craft including a public slipway, parking and up to 240 drying moorings together with visiting yacht berths for a further 50 vessels.
Newlyn is one of the largest fishing port in the UK and is the first 24/7 harbour available to boats fishing the Southwest Atlantic waters.
The new Newlyn Pier and Harbour Commissioners have been appointed to supervise the development and running of the port and fish market in the interests of the fishing industry and the broader Newlyn community. The Commissioners have been offered substantial funds to support a new fish market from the European Union Fisheries Fund and the European Union Regional Development Fund to help regenerate Newlyn as a port and town. Important decisions now need to be made regarding this funding, the proposed developments and the additional funding required and the new Harbour Commissioners Board are determined to consider the shipping industry and related industry and the local community in their discussions.
