Land’s End Complex, Nr Sennen TR19 7AA

One could argue that in this instance commercialism has hijacked the reason for one’s visit; to gape
in awe at the natural landscape of dramatic cliffs, rock falls and rock formations. Not forgetting the amazing sunsets. If you do manage to forget why you have actually got here then the occupants of the fun park will try and keep you amused with all manner of stuff. There is a small parking charge (accepted with thanks and a smile) and toilets, too, as well as a hotel and bar. Open all year 7am to 10pm.  Best advised to bring stout shoes, a weatherproof jacket, camera, and or, binoculars.
