One of the small villages in West Cornwall, Lamorna is in a secluded idyllic valley location with a rocky cove and small harbour that has inspired artists over the years. The best known of these is Lamorna Birch (real name Samuel John) whose work can be seen in Penlee House and other painters and potters. He was one of the Newlyn school of painters, but his influence almost created a Lamorna school of painters, as a number of other artists work in the valley. There are a few small galleries and Lamorna is a magnet for people in the know.

Locally Lamorna is also known for the tradition that on Good Friday, the people of Penzance would walk there as remembered in the folk song "Way Down to Lamorna."

Lamorna is also close to Porthcurno and the Minack Theatre
