Land`s End

Land`s End is one of the most famous locations in England.

It is a huge granite headland in Penwith in Cornwall, 8 miles from Penzance, and is the most Westerly point on the mainland of England.

There are several rocky and sandy coves, which are not easy to access, and the whole coastal area is one of outstanding natural beauty.

There is now a theme park with exhibitions.

The Scilly Islands, 28 miles away, are sometimes visible on the horizon. The Longships lighthouse is 1 mile offshore, and the Wolf lighthouse is about 8 miles away.

The distance to John o`Groats in Scotland is 873 miles.
