You wouldn’t expect to find a slice of Ancient Egypt in Cornwall but this is exactly what you’ll get if you explore the back streets of Penzance. Egyptian House Sprouting with flamboyant detail, this 19th-century fantasy takes the Egyptian brief and expands it to something so exuberant that historical accuracy is joyously sacrificed for something altogether more fun. 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.
