  4. Your next clue is a stones throw away, so don’t go too far. This building’s three floors were once filled with barrels of Baltic tallow and tar, yards of Quebec timber, coal from Wales and chandlery goods. This building dates back to around 1720.

  9. You are next searching for ‘A revitalised Georgian inn which brings a slice of eccentric charm to Penzance. This business serves up feasts of locally sourced meat and fish, whilst the sunny terrace garden is ideal for sundowners.’ If you find the menu board, you should find your Angel too.
  10. Your 8th Angel is hiding in a grade 1 listed building , which dates from 1835. It was built in the style of Egyptian revival architecture. Once found, make sure you’re with an adult and cross over the road, turn left and carry on up the road staying on the right hand side.
