Penzance: the Market House and Davy statue
Penzance: the Market House and Davy statue
The Market House stands at the top of the main Market Jew Street and was opened on 28 June 1838, the day of Queen Victoria's coronation. It was built to house the market in its western end and the guildhall in this eastern end.

The guildhall moved to new premises in 1867 while the western end was purchased by Lloyds Bank in 1925, who remain there today (see SW4730 : Penzance: the Market House from the west).

In front of the Market House is a statue of Sir Humphrey Davy, the chemist and inventor, who was born in Penzance in 1778.
