Signifying the westernmost tip of the country, Land’s End is famous for being one of Cornwall’s most iconic landmarks. In ancient Greek times, it was referred to as Belerion, meaning ‘The Shining Land’; a most befitting name for this stunning stretch of the coastline. There are several viewpoints around the Land’s End landmark from which to admire views onto the Atlantic Ocean, but we recommend following the footpath south along the clifftops to Pordenack Point, overlooking the Enys Dodnan Arch; a rugged arch of rock rising out of the churning waters below. Land’s End is flanked by two beautiful, sandy Cornish beaches - Sennen and Nanjizal - and it is well worth paying them a visit whilst you are in the area.
A photo standing in front of the famous Land’s End signpost is a must-do on your visit to this breath-taking beauty spot, and there are plenty of on-site attractions for all the family, including a model village and Aardman’s ‘A Grand Experience’. Land’s End also offers an array of places where you can sit back and enjoy delicious food whilst keeping your eyes peeled for any basking sharks or dolphins.
Due to the popular nature of this destination, booking for the main carpark is advised.
