Land's End Peninsula
The Land's End needs little explanation. It is the westernmost point of Cornwall and also the name of the peninsula which stretches from St Ives on the North coast and Penzance on the South.
The cliffs around the Land's End are hugely impressive as are the rock formations which lie off the coast.
Dr Syntax's Head, the Armed Knight and Dr Johnson's Head are just some of the strangely named natural masterpieces in granite which have inspired visitors and artists for centuries.
The Land's End peninsula also known as West Penwith has an enormous concentration of archaeological heritage with over 800 sites still visible.
Sites date from as early as the Neolithic era which began over 6000 years ago and trace the history of this area through the Bronze, Iron and Dark Age into the Early Christian period and the Age of the Celtic Saints.
Cornwall's Industrial archaeological heritage is also very well represented across much of the Land's End peninsula with enigmatic stone mine buildings situated in some of the most magnificent scenery in the whole of Cornwall.
The First and Last Trail, a scenic route for cyclists, hikers and horse riders, crosses the Land's End Peninsula.
