Holiday Travel Guide
Land\'s End featuring a sunset, general coastal views and rocky coastline

Hike along cliff-top trails above the Atlantic and visit interactive, family-friendly attractions at this charming area on the southwestern edge of the country.

Land’s End is a stunning coastal resort at the southwestern tip of the United Kingdom. As England’s westernmost point, it serves as the terminus for end-to-end walks across Great Britain, which begin in John o’ Groats in Scotland. Trek along scenic coastal paths, bring the kids to themed attractions and admire spectacular coastal vistas.

Learn about this region’s intriguing history. Settlers initially knew the headland as Belerion, meaning Place of the Sun. Ask around to find out more about the mythical lost land of Lyonesse, which was said to have been situated offshore here before it was sunk beneath the waves.

Pick up a walking guide and booklet from the Land’s End Visitor Centre and choose a path to suit your fitness level. Enjoy the views of the rugged sea cliffs and sparkling water and look for rock climbers grappling with the granite cliff faces. During stormy weather, the waves crash dramatically into the cliffs. When conditions are calmer, creatures such as seals, dolphins and porpoises often emerge from the ocean’s surface.

Enjoy Cornish ice cream at the First and Last Refreshment House in England, which has served travelers at Land’s End for many years. In the nearby village of Sennen, pubs, restaurants and cafés serve fresh fish and local specialties such as Cornish pasties.

Several fun child-friendly activities are offered near the visitor center. These include the Shaun the Sheep Experience, the 4-D cinema and Arthur’s Quest, an interactive display based on a challenge set by the wizard Merlin. During warmer weather, meet sheep, goats and other animals at the 200-year-old Greeb Farm.

Embark on the 838-mile (1,349-kilometer) trek from Land’s End to John o’ Groats in Scotland. Cycling the traditional trail takes between 10 and 14 days. Pose by the iconic Land’s End signpost, which lists the distance to John o’ Groats and to New York.

From Penzance, drive southwest for about 20 minutes to reach Land’s End where parking is available for a fee. Other landmarks in the vicinity include the picturesque headlands of Pedn-men-dhu and Pordenack Point.
