You might think that England's most Southwesterly point would be an atmospheric, dramatic piece of coastline steeped in history and romance. Well, it did have a great atmosphere until a few years ago when somebody decided to build a tacky theme park on the site. If you just want to see the coast, you can avoid the entrance fee to the theme park by walking around the outside of the park, but when you get to the coast it's all a bit of a let-down with all the fairground rides so nearby.

If you wanted to see dramatic piece of unspoilt coastline, go 20 miles along the coast to Lizard Point, England's most SOUTHERLY point. The natural scenery is just as good (if not better), there's a great atmosphere, no entrance fee, and not too many people around. Lizard village has a couple of shops and pubs.
