A good place to stop and stare! the most westerly place in England not that Cornwall feels much like England. It has a National Trust Car Park at the bottom and even without making the steep climb to the top the views are spectacular! there is a Golf Club very close by who are open to visitors and serve excellent...

This area of Cornwall is beautiful in all weathers - we have been here in summer and winter now, and loved visiting.

Great place to soak up the atmosphere of the Cornish coast (and rain and sea spray). I guess it is overshadowed by Lands End in terms of visitor numbers, but that can only be a good thing: far more interesting and far less crowded. On the day we visited, the toilets were as grim as the weather.

We decided to walk up to the top.... It was ridiculously windy! The views are beautiful but the walk up and being at the top was a bit scary with the wind! Well worth a visit.

Cold, windy, rainy, steep, rugged, beautiful. And a whole host of other snappy words to describe the short sharp but beautiful experience of the point!

We visited Cape Cornwall as part of a circular walk from Botallack. The weather was dull and windy but that only made it even more beautiful! The waves were crashing hard against the rocks and cliff edge making for some spectacular viewing. We parked at Botallcak, which is also worth a visit to see the old mine ruins although there...

The object is the HJHeinz monument on the cape, have a walk out to it from the car park and if you're up for it get on the coast path and walk to Sennen Cove (10km), it's a bit of a climb and rocky in places but well worth the effort, The Old Success pub is at the end and... More

Best seen in winter, or even Christmas. Massive waves tearing at the cliffs, real clean air blowing in. Thank goodness the National Trust captured this area, rather than being outbid as at Lands End, and we know what followed there ! This is truly the end of England. When you get back to ST Just, warm up in the Star... More
