Lands’ End – Cornwall

Land's End is 290 miles from London and 870 miles from John O'Groats (Scotland). It is the most westerly point on mainland Britain. Lands’ End is an eerie but most beautiful place and is almost constantly windy due to North Atlantic storms and swirling underwater currents.

Tourism

As with much of Cornwall tourism has an impact on Lands’ End. England ends with a hotel, exhibitions, craft centres, souvenir shops and snack bars.  Looking westerly you can see the Isles of Scilly and the Longships lighthouse.  In the other direction are the ruins of the Crowns section of the Botallack Mine. There are many holiday cottages available to book in and around Land’s End.  View Cottages in Land’s End. There are also plenty of other types of holidays available in this part of England

History

The Norman Conquest, however, brought many changes. King William's custom of rewarding his barons with large estates held good in Cornwall even as far west as Lands End.

As with the rest of Cornwall it has its fair share of folklaw and legends - It is a place steeped in ancient lore and legend, in tales of shipwrecks, smuggling and weird going ons from the days when tin miners toiled in narrow tunnels under the sea. It attracts thousands of visitors each year. It is easy to believe the fairy stories in this part of the world e.g. the stories of the 'little people' or 'Piskies', and the tales of giants.

The Coastline

The miles of cliffs and coves of Land's End are some of the most beautiful in the country.  Its famous granite cliffs are well worth a visit. If you like hiking, there are plenty of coastal walks for you to hike with the right hiking equipment
