Plan your visit

Coastal Landscape

At Land’s End, the coastal landscape is notoriously wild and the weathering action of waves, wind and salt-spray has produced classic rocky coastal scenery with rock arches, sea stacks, offshore rock islands and rugged cliffs.

The weather at Land’s End is mild, frost-free, wet and windy due to the latitude of the site and the strong oceanic influence of the Atlantic Sea.

The Land’s End peninsula has about thirty gale days per year and gales are most frequent in the winter months with over 65% of the winds being westerly.

We recommend visitors check the regional weather forecast in advance of their visit to Land’s End and dress appropriately with practical footwear.

If you have a carer with you, there is no ticket admission charge for them to accompany you around the site or the attractions; however, our concession car parking charge applies.
