The Land’s End landmark at the most south westerly point of mainland Britain is one of Cornwall’s best days out surrounded by spectacular rocky coastal scenery. A fantastic attraction and leisure complex is located at the landmark with several eateries catering for all tastes and budgets including The Land’s End Restaurant and Bar and refreshments served at the First & Last House. The West Country Shopping Village here offers a great mix of independent shops selling a variety of local Cornish produce from real ales and fudges to crafts and Land’s End souvenirs. Family friendly coastal paths branch out from the attraction, along the coast towards Sennen. Pick up guides to walks around the site from the Land’s End Visitor centre. The all day parking charge makes it easy to head off and explore, and there are a choice of heritage and coastal trails of varying lengths around the attraction so you can choose how strenuous or gentle you want to make your excursion. Look out for seals, dolphins or sharks in the sea’s blue depths often seen off the Land’s End coast.
