Newlyn is a town and fishing port in southwest Cornwall. The name derives from the Cornish Lulyn - Lu 'fleet' and Lynn/Lynd 'pool' and means "pool for a fleet of boats" thought to refer to the shallow waters just offshore also referred to as Gwavas Lane. Newlyn is the most southernmost town on the British mainland, although it is not the most sothernmost settlement, as that fame goes to the town of The Lizard.
In 1755, a tsunami struck the village. This was caused by an earthquake in Lisbon, some 600 miles away. The sea rose ten feet in ten minutes at Newlyn and ebbed at a similar rate. The event caused great loss of life and property.
Newlyn harbour is the largest fishing port in England and also has strong association with the creative arts world. There are a number of artists and art galleries in the area and in September 2011, a contemporary Newlyn School of Art was formed with Arts Council funding.

The UK National Tide and Sea Level Facility (NTSLF) maintains a tidal observatory at Newlyn, and the UK Fundamental Benchmark is maintained there.
