Land's End Holidays

Situated in an area of outstanding natural beauty, and offering breathtaking views, this part of Cornwall is ideal for walks, whether it’s along the South West Coast Path, or exploring inland through the rural countryside. The coastline here is home to some of the most beautiful beaches in Cornwall, with the hidden beach of Nanjizal nearby providing a great place to escape the crowds.

Things to do at Land's End

Land’s End signpost

A photo in front of the famous Land's end signpost is a must.  As it’s run by a local photography company, you will have to pay for the privilege, but it will allow you to insert the name and distance of your home town on the signpost, giving you a personalised souvenir of your stay.  For those who want a cheaper day out, exploring the stunning coastal scenery costs nothing! Entrance to the Land's End complex is also free, as is the West Country Shopping Village. There are also Pay-as-you-go attractions such as the 4d Experience and Greeb Farm, which are perfect for the kids.

Coastal Wildlife 

Birdwatchers will be in paradise in this part of the county, with a wide range of migrant species and rare birds to see. Land’s End is one of many birding sites in Cornwall, with other notable locations such as Marazion Marsh and Hayle Estuary closeby.

Whilst out exploring, you may even catch a glimpse of basking sharks, seals and dolphins which are known to swim in the waters below the cliffs of Land’s End.

Walks 

As Land’s End is situated along the South West Coast Path, you can enjoy the stunning coastal scenery on dedicated paths. You can also walk inland and experience the beautiful countryside and rural villages in West Penwith. 

To refuel after exploring the scenery, a visit to the ‘First and Last inn’ in nearby Sennen is an interesting stop off point, and is steeped in smuggling history.

Surfing at Sennen Cove

Just a couple of miles from Land's End is one of Cornwall’s most renowned surfing spots. With a surf school located on the beach, you don’t have to be an expert to enjoy what Sennen has to offer.

Nearby Attractions

Isles of Scilly

From Land's End airport, you can board the Skybus and take the short flight to the Isles of Scilly, which is a truly stunning place.  You’d be forgiven for thinking you just landed in the Mediterranean! Consisting of 5 inhabited islands and many other smaller islands, the Isles of Scilly are just 28 miles off the coast of Lands End and are surrounded by beautiful, blue water.

Tom Bawcock's Eve, Mousehole

The tradition of Tom Bawcock comes from the feast or famine lifestyle of Cornwall.  The story goes that it was just before Christmas; there had been no fish for weeks, the boats couldn’t get out into the raging storm, the village was starving. One man, Tom Bawcock, dared to take his boat out of the harbour’s safety. He returned with enough fish to make fish pie for the whole village. 

Today, a festival takes place each year to celebrate Tom Bawcock's bravery. During the festival, Star Gazey pies are eaten in memory of this famous event.
