Take a walk or get a bus
Morrab Gardens are close to the centre of Penzance, between the main shopping area and the Promenade. Whether you arrive in Penzance by train, bus or car, the Railway Station – adjacent to the bus station and the Harbour car park – is a good landmark to start from. There are several ways to reach Morrab Gardens from there, but the simplest is to start by walking up Market Jew Street and through the town centre.
Alternatively you could climb the steep Abbey Slip beside the old harbour; take a walk along the Promenade from the Wherrytown car park or Alexandra Road; or get a bus to the Greenmarket and take an easy stroll through back roads from Greenmarket to the Gardens.
The Gardens are situated on a gentle south-facing slope, with plenty of seating. Tarmac paths provide easy, step-free access to most parts of the Gardens.
