Stomp Across the Cliffs at Land’s End

Stomp Across the Cliffs at Land’s End

No visit down the far west of Cornwall would be complete without a stop at the most westerly point in England, so pull on your walking boots and head for this amazing spot for incredible Atlantic views, fresher than fresh air and the opportunity to walk off some of those cream teas in possibly the nicest way.

A designated National Landscape, the cliffs, open moorland and incredible flora and fauna draw many a visitor from around the world and the area is riddled with paths and trails, such as the famed South West Coast Path (which runs between Minehead in Somerset to Poole in Dorset - a trail of 630 miles) and the ‘First and Last’ trail (a 25 mile walk from Hayle on the north coast to Land’s End).

Shorter but no less dramatic walks include Land’s End to Sennen Cove, a three mile walk strewn with wildflowers and seabirds, and Land’s End to Porthcurno (home to the Minack Theatre).

Whilst you’re at Land’s End, make sure to poise for a cheesy pic at the famous signpost and gaze across to Longships Lighthouse, the Isles of Scilly and imagine North America beyond.

Of course, all that fresh air and exercise is bound to make you hungry, but luckily there are plenty of places to eat or grab a snack in Sennen.
