Landsend, Cornwall

Land's End to me as a child used to conjure up all sort of imaginary things as to what was at the landsend. Now I know its just a tacky theme park with pay as you view talking telescopes all over the place ??????????

The name Land's End has a particular resonance because it is so often used in outlining the length of Britain when races, walks and charitable events take place between Land's End and the Scottish village John o' Groats (the most north-easterly settlement in mainland Britain). The phrase Land's End to John o' Groats is frequently heard both as a literal journey and as a metaphor for great or all-encompassing distance.

Land's End (Cornish name: Penn a Wlas) is a headland on Cornwall's Penwith Peninsula, located near Penzance and St Ives in Cornwall, England. It is the most westerly tip of the English mainland. Visible from Land's End is the Longships Lighthouse. The Longships, a few miles out, is a serpentine and quartz island. Offshore, midway between Land's End and the Isles of Scilly, is the supposed location of the mythical lost land of Lyonesse, referred to in Arthurian literature.

That apart the tacky so called theme park, the car parking charges, and the overall commercialism of the place has spoilt what in my humble opinion could be one of our country's most wonderful location's to visit. I went there only to get  some pictures of the sunset which can be brilliant there.
