Paul is a village in Cornwall, England, United Kingdom. It is in the civil parish of Paul[1] The village is two miles (3 km) south of Penzance and one mile (1.6 km) south of Newlyn.

The village of Paul is represented on Penzance Town Council. For elections to Cornwall Council (the unitary authority) Paul is within the three-member single Penzance Electoral division.

Like many Cornish communities Paul has its own community celebration. Paul Feast is held on the Sunday nearest 10 October every year when the village is decorated and a civic service takes place on the Sunday of the feast itself led by the Mayor of Penzance. The feast may be an example of the Celtic pagan practice of celebrating Samhain or Allantide.
