The most westerly major town of Cornwall, Penzance is a civil parish and port, and the base for some very civilised nights on the tiles.
Yet, wherever you choose to have a night out with the lads, or the girls, there is always a risk of experiencing alcohol-related accidents, which can lead to myriad illness and injuries following your night out.
From slips, trips and falls to ruckuses on the street, nights out in Penzance can be just as hazardous as those spent in some of the party capitals of the UK.
Staying clear of slips, trips and other accidents in Penzance
As you can imagine, Penzance is a particularly welcoming, charming coastal town with many delightful bars and restaurants, as well as a handful of upscale brasseries and nightclubs.
However you prefer to let your hair down, the main aim of a night out in Penzance, as in any other UK town or city, is fun, fun, fun.
If you apply a good level of common sense, stay away from rowdy crowds and avoid drawing any negative attention to yourself, it is likely that you will have a fabulous night, free from slips, trips and other accidents.
Penzance crime rates
In comparison to UK cities, Penzance crime rates are relatively low, but compared with Cornwall rates, rates of crime and anti-social behaviour are high.
There are particular problems, centrally within the town, with dependent drinking, problem drug use, general rowdy/nuisance anti-social behaviour and alcohol-related violence associated with night time economy.
With that in mind, to avoid any accidents and injuries on a Penzance night out, you need to act responsibly, stay in well-lit areas, in crowds, and stay clear of bad vibes or apparent violence.
