Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This is a wonderful part of Penzance and I think one of the most stunning streets for Architecture. Small details including ornate door knockers and lanterns to majestic houses once owned I imagine by the elite of Penzance and a variety of trading houses and offices. The Egyptian building stands testimony to a rich past.

The shops, cafes, restaurants and pubs make this the ideal place to hunt out unique gifts, great food and a good pint!

Lovely street in Penzance with a great selection of eateries, independent shops and galleries. Well worth a visit for its quirky style, the Egyptian House, Artists Residence and 45 Queen Street.

Lovely street with interesting historical buildings.
The Admiral Benbow public house worth a visit.
Also do the walk through the churchyard down to the prom.

Plenty of old shops and eating places to enjoy and at the end a steep walk back to the sea and car park. Don't drink too mush the path can be slippy

Possibly the nicest Street I saw in Penzance from my limited time there. Lots of historic houses and pubs like the Egyptian and chocolate housez

Great pubs - Admiral Benbow / The Turk's Head. Great and querky hotels - Artists Residence. Museums - The Egyptian Centre - art galleries and independent shops. Quiet and leads to Market Jew Street one way and the harbour /esplanade / Jubilee Pool the other. Look out for Helen Glover's gold post box.

Chapel Street is great with some excellent independent shops and some nice restaurants. Only wished that more of the shops (and The Exchange Museum) were open at the time of year we went.

Very interesting street with a number of historical buildings, quirky independent shops & a nice café & eating culture.
Watch out for the sniper on the roof of the Admiral Benbow, it’s one of the oldest pubs in Penzance!

Amazing street to go through. Buildings were stunning. Penzance is a very nice town and this part of the town is a must see. The Egyptian house is also here.

Street with some nice shops and restaurants. The thing that makes the street stand out is The Egyptian House and the Admiral Benbow pub with a sculpture of a sniper on the roof. Nice to visit if you're in Penzance.
