First and Last House This famous historical building

First and Last House

The First and Last House is now closed for essential winter maintenance, and will re-open in 2017.

Located on the clifftops at the most westerly point of mainland Britain, this is the first or last house depending on whether you’re entering or leaving England!

This famous historical building was originally opened by a lady called Gracie Thomas who served travellers at Land’s End with welcome food and drink, plus souvenirs of their visit (originally just pieces of local granite with ‘Land’s End’ stamped on them).

So many years later, the First and Last House still offers gifts, toys and refreshments including, of course, real Cornish ice cream.

Plan your visit

From a day visit to a weekend break, or great ideas that will help you get the most from your time at the westernmost point of Cornwall.
