Land's End

One of Britain’s most loved landmarks (and one of ours too!) is Land’s End. It's the most south-westerly point of mainland Britain and is famous for 200-foot-high cliffs with views, on a good day, of the Longships Lighthouse and the Isle of Scilly, as well as being the start or finish of many pilgrimages to and from John O'Groats. It is about a one-and-a-half to two-hour drive from us, but is totally worth it to grab a photo at the iconic signpost!

There’s plenty to keep you busy, but if you don't have children with you, we'd recommend skipping the family-friendly attractions and heading out along the cliff-top trails to take in the rugged landscape, or exploring the First and Last Trail to visit the charming villages Sennen and Mousehole. 

If you're looking to entertain children, back at the main visitor's area you'll find crazy golf, a 4D film experience, a small farmstead with animals children can feed and pet and an interactive Aardman animation experience.
