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.
