Cape Cornwall is always impressive - especially when the wind is up - we called in on a blustry afternoon on the coast road back from the Minack Theatre just to see the view.

Spent the loveliest morning here... Incredible views in every direction, fascinating history, the most delicious home baked cakes we've ever tasted from a snack van, an unforgettable Cornish welcome, spectacular waves washing over Priest's Cove, and basking seals in the bay! The real Land's End... Forget the commercialised tourist attraction down the road. You won't get a better experience of... More

Small nt car park - plenty of space even in August, free for members. Lovely walks with views down towards the Longships lighthouse and the Brisons.

Very nice national trust site with free car park for nt members. Great views from top along coast line. Well worth a visit, maybe even instead of going to Lands End, maybe.

If you're a fan of dramatic coastlines then give this a visit, one of the best spots to appreciate the beauty of Cornwall. Make sure you wear sensible walking shoes as there is a steep climb up to the Coastwatch station and the ground isn't totally stable underfoot.
