Land's End is the most Southwesterly point in Britain and part of Cornwall in the South West. It is not a town or village but rather a former small holding which now has an Visitor Complex with a Hotel, Visitor attractions and is well known for being the starting/ending point for the Land's End to John o'Groats Wikivoyage Icon journey.

Understand

Land's End's main represents both the starting and ending points of the longest journey in Great Britain, Land's End to John O'Groats. Consequently, it is known as "The First and Last", due to its position at the extremity of the UK. It is an atmospheric, dramatic piece of coastline steeped in history and romance.

See

Do

  • There is a Complex of Attractions on the site. A professional photographer takes photos of you in front of the signpost showing your hometown's distance (see photo above). He will charge you around £10 for the photos. There is a fence around the signpost, but you can, and many people do, just take their own photos standing in front of the fence.
  • Walk East along the coast to the first promontory. The sea arch is visible along with the extraordinary rock formations in this area (weathered Granite). The coast path continues on to Porthgwarra past various coves, many caves, another sea arch and possibly some of the most dramatic coastline in the entire UK. An extended walk will reach Porthcurno where there is a bus service.
