History

Penzance began to flourish at the turn of the 19th century and became a popular Cornish destination. With the introduction of the railway through Cornwall, tourism in the area increased and the lovely beaches of Penzance were made accessible to everybody.

Named in honour of Victoria's Silver Jubilee, The Queens Hotel opened in a blaze of publicity in 1862 off the back of the increase in tourism. At the time of opening, it boasted the following public rooms; a coffee room, reading and writing room, ladies' drawing room and a smoking and billiard room. By the 1890s it was marketed as having hot and cold water and carefully-stocked wines!

Cornwall remains one of the main seaside tourist destinations in Britain, and The Queens Hotel still enjoys great popularity today.
