Englands most southwesterly point

Land's End is the most Southwesterly point in England and part of Cornwall in the West Country.

An atmospheric, dramatic piece of coastline steeped in history and romance. Well, it was until a few years ago, before it was developed for the tourists.

Get in

If you go there by car, be prepared to spend 2 pounds for the parking area. There is also a regular schedule between Penzance and Land's End.

Get around

The whole area can be easily accessed by feet. Take care of proper clothing, since Land's End can be a rough, windy place due to its exposed location and closeness to the atlantic ocean.

Land's End Airport

Situated close to Land's End itself, the Airport enjoys a spectacular setting. Overlooking the dramatic Cornish coast offering a welcome relief to the bustle of ‘up-country’ life. Within the immediate vicinity are several tourist attractions, scenic walks and plentiful accommodation. The South West Coastal Footpath is adjacent to the Airport and leads to many stunning beaches including Sennen Cove and Porthcurno. Land's End Airport offers a great range of activities including: Scenic Flights, Banner Towing, Aerial Photography, Pilot Training, Trial Lessons, and Flying School and Skybus flights to the Isles of Scilly. [1].


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.


There is a tacky theme park on the site. A professional photographer takes photos of you in front of the signpost showing your hometown's distance. (see photo above) He will charge you around 5 pounds for the photos. Unfortunately you can't do photos on your own, since the signpost is surrounded by a small fence, preventing you from getting too close.


The theme park has a quite big souvenir shop offering a wide range of souvenirs.




  • Land's End Hotel - the hotel is located a few minutes away from the signpost itself. Room fares range from 40 to 90 pounds, depending on the time of year and type of room. Breakfast is included.

Get out

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.
