- Land's End, the furthest point west on the mainland of
England, has a magnetic pull for tourists.
- It is an area steeped in tales of smugglers, and
- The famous south westerly point of England is best known for the journeys to
John O’Groats which start and finish here. The wild granite cliffs overlook
wave crashed rocks with the Longships lighthouse one mile offshore.
- On the far
horizon are the Isles of Scilly but they can be seen only in the clearest
weather. In summer, Land’s End is one of the busiest and most crowded ‘honeypots’ in England.
