Being the most westerly point of the English mainland, Land’s End holds an inevitable appeal for many, and indeed the views from there are exactly what the imagination conjures up when one visualises a wild Cornish seascape. It has been commercialised, too much for some, but if one can turn a blind eye to this, it can make for a memorable visit.
Perhaps one of the best ways to approach Land’s End is by walking there along the coast path from either Sennon Cove or Nanjizal, both walks of around 3 miles if you go to Land’s End and back again. For most of the walk you’ll be away from the crowds, and able to enjoy the serenity and wildness as you stride along the clifftops. Once at Land’s End, whether you walk there or arrive by vehicle, there is plenty to do, and some choice as to where to eat too. But the view is the highlight, so find a quiet spot along the clifftop, and gaze out beyond Longships Lighthouse across the drama provided by the Atlantic Ocean.
