Penryn is one of Cornwall’s most ancient towns, founded in 1216 with a wealth of charm, character and history. Standing at the head of the Penryn River, it occupies a sheltered position and was a port of some significance in the 15th century. By the 1600s, the port was thriving with the trade in Cornish tin and copper. In the early 19th century, granite works were established by the river and large quantities of the stone were shipped form its quays for construction projects both in the UK and abroad. Today, Penryn is a bustling town and has managed to retain an enormous amount of its heritage. With a large proportion of its buildings dating back to Tudor, Jacobean and Georgian times, the town has been designated as an important Conservation area. The local museum is housed in the Town Hall and brings the history to life.
