Egyptian House interior You can book the three self-catering apartments in the Egyptian House with the Landmark Trust who have nearly 200 historic properties for rent across the UK from castles to prisons. You can get to Penzance by train in 5 hours 30 minutes from London or you can take the overnight Sleeper service that leaves St Pancras Station in London 6 nights a week.
