Posted on Sep 27, 2016
Summer may have flown by for another year, but that doesn’t mean the fun has to stop.
Here are ten unique ideas to make sure you have a memorable autumnal time at the westernmost point of Cornwall.
1. Enjoy lunch, afternoon tea, or dinner with a view at the Land’s End Restaurant.
Sit back, relax, and look out across the Atlantic Ocean while you enjoy the delicious cuisine in the restaurant; an unforgettable view, like no other.
2. Walk the coastal path.
Explore the Land’s End headland by enjoying a walk around this beautiful part of the British coast – keep an eye-out for Cornish wildlife and sealife, such as the Atlantic Grey Seal and the Cornish Chough while you’re out and about.
3. Explore the End to End Story.
Enjoy our free interactive tribute to the countless End to End adventurers who have completed this iconic journey. From celebrities, to charitable events and beyond – everyone has a story to tell.
4. Visit the iconic Signpost.
Snap a personalised memento to keep from your trip to the westernmost point of mainland Cornwall and Britain.
5. Treat yourself to some retail therapy.
Explore the West Country Shopping Village, Penwith House, or the First & Last House for unique Cornish gifts, sweet treats and more.
6. Let your ‘little monsters’ imagination run wild during half-term.
Come along during October half-term to a week of Halloween-themed fun. A free arts and crafts workshop for kids with chocolaty treats to be won and four family attractions, including the fantastic 4D Film Experience: the Lost World.
7. Try a traditional Cornish pasty.
No Cornish experience is complete without a historic local delicacy, the Cornish pasty. Pick up a traditional steak pasty or choose the chicken option at Land’s End – where pasties are made locally by the world’s oldest pasty maker, Warren’s.
8. Visit the craft-workers at Greeb Farm.
Check out some of the intricate workings of our resident leather/wood works and silversmith. Ask nicely, and talented silversmith, Eddie, may even treat you to one of his epic Cornish fables and stories.
9. Pop in to the Penwith House Gallery.
Visit our resident artist, Wendy Williams, in the Penwith House Gallery. A lot of her work on show is based on our inspiring and rugged coastline.
10. Visit the historic First & Last Inn.
Situated just 1 mile up the road in the village of Sennen. Visit the iconic inn renowned since the 1600s at the headquarters of smugglers and wreckers. Enjoy local ales, and sample the new Autumn Menu – quintessentially British dishes, with a ‘gamey’ twist.
