Listed as an area of outstanding natural beauty’ and ‘very important plant area’, Land’s End is one of Britain’s best loved landmarks, famous for its unique location and beautiful scenery. A visit to this, the westernmost point of Cornwall, provides guests with a fantastic day out and the chance to awaken their senses by experiencing one of the UK’s most breath-taking coastal landscapes in all its natural glory.
It is the start, or in some cases the finish, of the many historic Land’s End to John O’Groats 875 mile ‘End to End’ journeys. Over the years, these journeys have raised millions of pounds for charity and, in more recent times, have made national headlines through the efforts of people like Fern Britton, Chris Evans, Gary Barlow, Dr Brian Cox and inspirational adventurers like Sean Conway and the team from Beeline Britain
Whether it happens to be storm watching as the seas crash over the top of the Longships Lighthouse, taking in the awe-inspiring views from the First and Last Point or having a picture taken at the famous signpost, Land’s End is alive with possibility.
New for the 2015 season, the interactive Shaun the Sheep Experience is a joint venture between Heritage Great Britain PLC and Aardman Animations, costing half a million pounds. With a range of other ‘pay as you go’ attractions designed to keep families entertained throughout the summer months, including Arthur’s Quest, an interactive exhibition that takes guests on a journey of discovery, and Greeb Farm, a restored 200 year old Cornish farmstead where young and old can meet the animals, Land’s End is a truly absorbing day out.
With a state-of-the-art 100 seater 4D Cinema immersing guests in a cutting edge Jurassic adventure, as well as an ‘end to end’ exhibition featuring extraordinary tales of the ‘end to enders’ and their outlandish modes of transport, Land’s End is West Cornwall’s ‘must visit’ destination.
