|Land's End, the south west tip of mainland
Britain and one of the world's best known landmarks, possesses a timelessness
all of it's own.
|It's Appeal has emphatically passed the
test of time. For centuries it's unparallelled mix of outstanding natural
scenery, intriguing legend and mystique has annually drawn travellers by
the thousands. Here are power and grandeur. Power in currents and tides
with their enormous running swells crashing against the rugged rocks far
below. Grandeur in the height and fantastic shapes of the 200 ft cliffs
and crags with their fascinating variety of Bird life. During the summer
months the RSPB staffs bird viewing sites to tell the visitor of the colonies
which nest here and of the many birds which use Land's End as a stop over.
| A walk along the coastal footpath to
or from Sennen or south towards Penberth gives spectacular views of the
cliffs and may also reward you with a glimpse of a school of Dolphins that
regularly grace our shores.
|To Sea, the Longships Lighthouse lies
two miles offshore, and on the horizon are the Isles of Scilly. In between,
beneath the surface, the legendary world of the Lost Land of Lyonnesse -
the remains of whole cities and rich and fertile plains. Church bells, they
say, can still be heard ringing between Land's End and the Scillies.
| Exhibitions and entertainments, such
as the Last Labyrinth - an electronic theatre display - are open every day
from 10 am. Car parking £ 2.00 per day - admission to exhibitions extra.
