About
The beautiful scenery of Land's End has made it one of Britain's favourite destinations for days out. Located at the westernmost point of Cornwall, you can appreciate fully how the relationship between land and sea is constantly changing.Parking your car is the only thing you have to pay for, and you can then walk the clifftops to see how Cornwall changes from season to season, or contemplate the thousands of miles of the Atlantic Ocean which begin at the First and Last Point.No visit is complete without having your picture taken at the famous land's end signpost. Then do a spot of souvenir shopping at the West Country Shopping Village, before taking time out to relax in the Land's End Bar and Restaurant.When it comes to finding things to do in Cornwall, the very tip of the county makes a great starting point for discovering all the places to visit.

    So bad it’s laughable.
    I know it’s December but the place is a ghost town. Parking is an extortionate price and people should be warned that £5 parking gets you NOTHING. The place is closed apart from the trading company which sells the usual tourist tat. It should’ve closed at 3pm but was all shut at 14:50. Food and drink outlets completely closed. Also, to pay to have your picture taken by the signs on the cliff edge topped off a tourist trap visit.

    Rip off visit to Land End
    Made the mistake of going to Lands End on Boxing Day, what an unmitigating rip off, £5.00 to park the car & not a solitary thing open. Now I appreciate staff have to have holidays but this is supposed to be a major tourist attraction. To make matters worse the parking ticket machine only accepts coins, have the owners not heard of parking apps & credit card. Had it not been for a lovely South African couple who gave us 50p we would not have had enough change. People visit from many overseas countries what image must this paint for them.

    Life’s end
    How utterly depressing. This is like the illegal love child of a grim service station combined with a 1970’s theme park. You are charged £7.50 to enter a makeshift village including bizarre attractions including a Wallace and Grommit experience and a graffiti emblazoned sculpture of a kidney. Presumably the cliff is roped off to prevent customers throwing themselves off in sheer misery. Save £7.50 and save yourselves too.

    Tourist trap for an old sign post
    Changed since I went was a kid. Only called in as we were up the road at a tin mine and wanted to see changes my parents mentioned. They were right about the sign moving which we can see in photos from 70s 80s and last couple of years. The car park fee is a rip off. £5 flat fee until late afternoon then a £3. Signs say to keep the landscape in tack but seems nature is doing that job. Overpriced tourist junk around and expensive fee for a photo at said sign post. Found John o' Groats more authentic and not so much a rip off when I went a few years back.

    Pretty views, but shouldn't charge people to have a photo under the sign post!
    Pretty place to visit, but annoyed about the sign post! Travelling all the way from Nottingham and when arriving we found that they were charging £10.95 for a professional photo under the sign post. I wasn't bothered about having a professional photo, I just wanted to take some from my phone but the man wouldn't allow that. Still wanted £10.95 for photos from my own phone.. Rather disappointing after travelling so far and they can't let you just stand next to the sign post without having to charge a ridiculous amount of money. Was only allowed to take a photo from behind the barrier which wasn't even close to the sign. £5 for parking Nothing was open just 1 shop.

    Would leave a 0 if I could.
    We made our 3rd visit in just over a year to Lands End. On arrival we had to pay £5 to park. In the space of just over a year it's gone up from Feb 2022 being I think £2.50. Anyway, we walk over to the Gift Shop, which has changed and pretty much not much to offer like previous visits. As we ventured out we noticed the attraction was closed. As were the toilets. As were the little food shacks. So we went over to the big white building where we love the hot chocolate from there..... Guess what? Shut. Lucky there was a chain on the cliff or I might have just jumped. What a depressing trip. Went back to the car and went to St Ives. Don't waste your money. Paying £5 to go in an overpriced Gift Shop was not worth it.
    Hi laurahB4512KA, we are sorry to hear you left disappointed with your visit. During the quieter seasons we have reduced opening hours in order to do all essential winter maintenance. We are also currently building a brand new indoor golf attraction that will be opening Spring 2023. Our attractions will reopen for Easter half term and then stay open 7 days a week throughout the summer season. We appreciate all of your feedback and it will help us in the future with decision making. We hope you give us another chance in the future

    Don’t waste your money/time
    Visited in the afternoon as we hadn’t been for years and we were surprised how much worse it all looked Parking is £6 and pretty well everything was closed.The very expensive shopping area closed at 3.30 and the one cafe charged £5 or a dried up pasty. The photo signpost is roped off and a minimum of £10 charged for a photo. The scenery of course is great but my advice is to park at Sennen cove and walk the coast path to enjoy the lovely coastline for free.

    Rip off
    Love this area but refuse to pay £7.50 just to park the car! We turned around without stopping and we weren't the only ones. No need to rip people off. We won't be back until this changes. How do you justify this?
    Hi DeniseC44230, thank you for feedback. Our car park operations will be changing very soon which will offer our visitors more flexibility on how long they would like to stay. If you are local please look into redeeming the locals pass also. We hope you will give us another chance soon.

    Rip off
    £7.50 to park on a cool, murky day. Hardly anything open apart from tacky gift shop and expensive clothing. First and Last house closed. Obliged to park there to meet family who had walked from Sennen Cove. Scenery lovely but no more so than other cliff top car parks free or considerably cheaper in the winter - went onto Porthcurno, £2 all day. Been several times in the past when I could walk there, scenery lovely, attractions tacky and an embarrassment to Cornwall. I don’t know how it manages to keep going. Never again.

Standing at the most westerly point of the country is a must do if you are a visitor to Cornwall. A photo beside the iconic signpost is almost on a par with the photo with the Hollywood sign in LA. Pity that the signpost is no longer accessible unless you pay to have your photo taken and there is generally a long queue to stand in while you await your turn. Apart from the foregoing there is otherwise nowt here - all given over to a Cornish Shopping Village selling mostly trash, a few fast food trash food sellers and 4 or 5 so called "family attractions" which look and probably are appalling and which will drain you of your holiday money - a trashy human zoo. The car park is a field - it is expensive and we had to reserve an entry time and pay for it in advance.

Hi FairCItyFrasie, Thank you for your feedback, we are sorry that your visit here was not how you expected it to be - especially our retail and catering outlets and our 4 family attractions. All of our facilities on site are optional extras to add to our visitor experiences to make their visits memorable. In regards to the signpost, this has been owned and operated by an external local company and has been since the 1950's. During operating hours there has always been a small charge to have a customisable photo next to the signpost, after operating hours there is a temporary one in place that visitors are welcome to have to photo next to without having to pay. We are glad you feel that Land's End Landmark is a must do if you are in Cornwall and we hope that you visit again in the future.

Lands End is one of those places you simply have to visit U.K at some stage in your life. It’s a bucket list type place, right?

Well, to get in you’ll need to pay £6 if you pre-book and £7 if you pay on arrival.

Right, about the place itself. On arrival you’re faced with a slightly strange Roman colonnade facade style entrance flanked by 2 lion statues. Slightly odd theme but okayyy. It feels a bit like an entry to low a budget theme park if I’m being honest.

When you get inside it’s an eclectic mix of a few slightly tired shops selling things from jumpers to pyjamas to fridge magnets and teapots. There is also a few places to eat and get a cuppa - or a beer , a museum and a 4d cinema - though when we went the cinema was out of order due to covid. Oh, and a hotel but I think that was being refurbed (?).

Once past the main ‘complex’ you make your way through to the actual Lands End cliffs edge. The famous lands edge direction post is there but to have your picture taken next to it will cost approx. a tenner. They will put a message on it though using letters, take the photo for you and give you an actual print. I wasn’t expecting this. I thought it would just be the sign post! we thought it was rather expensive so we didn’t get the classic ‘pic next to the signpost’.

After the sign you can make your way down to another stand alone cafe building and/or explore the area to your hearts content.

Along with the regular sightseers we saw plenty of people who looked and appeared to be heading off to do some pretty serious hiking. After all, the location and scenery are first rate. There is no doubt about that. There are plenty of tracks to go explore should you wish to do more than simply have a little wander.

In conclusion, it just struck me as a rather peculiar place. It feels like it’s trying to be more than just a land mark but hasn’t quite got to grips with what it wants to be yet. Like it’s trying to become some sort of theme park but needs a big injection of cash.

Do I regret going? Certainly not. Would I go again? Not unless it significantly changed for the better.

I don’t want this to be a negative review by any means. We had a cuppa and a pasty and it was delicious (quite pricy though). And the views and location are genuinely impressive. I just left thinking what an unusual place !)

We’ve lived in Cornwall for many years but only just visited the iconic Landmark of Lands End.
The car parking cost a fiver which even though it wasn’t cheap I suppose it’s the norm these days. It had been raining the day before so there were plenty of muddy spots in the car park due to the loose gravel surface.
Once we entered the resort area it was clear that it was a tacky commercial enterprise aimed at prising visitors cash from their pockets so not exactly the ultimate shopping experience.
We weren’t there to shop though,just to look at the stunning sea and cliff top views.
We did the three mile return walk from lands end to the old coastguard station above Sennen cove where we were treated to stunning views. It’s worth noting that the walk is fairly easy but it’s not suitable for anyone with walking difficulties as the surface is undulating and rough.
Our main reason for the visit was to have our photo taken underneath the Iconic Lands End signpost by the pub.
What a rip off. There is a tiny little hut there and a roped off area around the signpost where they charge between £11 and £15 for a photo which they take then post onto you.
We arrived just as they were packing up for the day in time for us to see them remove their fake signpost where they place their victims home town/ county for the staged photos and then replace it with the original one. We then just stepped up and took our own selfie in front of the sign.
Anyone can do this so don’t get conned into being ripped off.
We probably won’t visit there again but it’s something I’ve glad I’ve done if only to say we’ve been there.

Thank you Mick B for your review following your most recent visit to us. Down here at Land's End Landmark we aim to have a variety of outlets and attractions for all to enjoy. We're sorry that these weren't to your taste. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed the return walk from Land's End to Sennen Cove and that you were 'treated to stunning views'. The signpost has been owned and operated by an external local photography company since the 1950's and consequently they reserve the right to operate this how they deem appropriate. Thank you once again for your review and visit.

The availability of an apparent 'pre-booking system' in order that 'visitor numbers can be controlled to a safe level for the area available to the public' encouraged us to book a visit to this well known tourist attraction. This along with the promise of 'safety measures in place' lulled us into the false security of believing that a responsible, covid secure attraction had been established.

However, we were bitterly disappointed. None of the measures stated in their replies to negative feedback bear much truth.

On arrival, we were greeted by the attendant who was very pleasant. It's a shame he was hanging out of his booth and shouting into our car window with no mask. The visitor numbers were so great that we were shown down to the overflow carparks about 3 fields down from the entrance. It remains to be seen how many cars they can actually take before they have had to 'consequently turn people away on multiple occasions'.

Access to the attraction was via a narrow path with NO one way system in place.

Entrance to the attraction itself was again via a narrow corridor with NO one way system, no markings and no attendants. The area around the shops was VERY crowded with NO one way system or attendants to advise.

There are NO one way systems in place to walk around the viewing area and again, NO attendants. There was a queue in place to be photographed by the sign but it was not enforced and staff were NOT in attendance to supervise.

There was NO control on numbers entering the shops and prices were not clearly displayed. However, there were markings to queue for the food kiosks. NO hand sanitising stations were obvious.

We felt very disappointed that such easy measures (as seen in other attractions) have not been put in place.

The standard reply to the negative comments is not in my opinion factually true or morally sound!

I get it, for a land mark / attraction that’s known throughout the world I understand there’s a cost involved. Firstly, car park costs money and then standing next to the famous sign also cost money. But what surprises me is that the line of people queuing up to hand over their hard-earned money. The walk along the coast line was the best.

We prebooked car parking for £6 to ensure we would be able to park as everywhere is so busy with more UK holidays and restrictions on numbers.
Safety measures seemed to be well implemented with queue systems, floor markings, hand gel stations and staff PPE.
We had a drink outside the hotel where it was table service and then self serve by the play area along with pasties and icecream. All staff were friendly and helpful.
We had the obligatory photo which feels a bit vintage as they still post the photos out.

Land’s end, the end of land. All land!

The isles of scillly may loom, lurking on the horizon but take heed oh landlubbers for hear rock air and sea collide.

The coffee from the rather garish and busy (Quel horreur others wanted to espy lands end too) visitor centre was yummo so meandering towards the ‘end’ with a coffee for company or confidence is always a good idea.

The path is easy to find and accessible in pumps, following the apex of the cliff tops.

Purple heather make me teary for the fatherland but content with watching my feet, the vista and Daisy (our chihuahua) devour rabbit poo we scamper around the path like ungainly chamois.

Fences and rope keep people from unintended tumblings and a gentle zephyr accompanies the autumnal wistful Sunshine.

Meaty rocks lie atop one another for a splendid viewpoint to look upon the glory of life and rejoice where kestrels, gulls and gannets dare.

£7 for parking is as steep as the cliffs but is it possible to put a price on this? This elemental wonder in a county of mythic beauty and tangible spirituality.

Follow your spirit and upon this cry God for St Petroc, St Michael, St Piran and England!

Land's End is stunning, with breathtaking views of the Atlantic and the Isles of Scilly. And it remains this way, if you can just keep facing the sea.
Behind you is a mish mash of tacky toot shops and food stalls, noise and "attractions", including a 4D cinema. It's just horrible.
And...can you believe there is some guy,in a little hut, CHARGING for people to have their photo taken by the famous famous Land's End sign??? Seriously. We couldn't just walk up and take our own photographs! Shocking, unadulterated, money-making trash.
It's an eyesore, in the middle of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. We were there for less than an hour, because I just couldn't stomach it any longer and I paid £7 for the privilege. During this time, we were subjected to the sounds of a 'band' that set up in the pub, despite being nowhere near said pub. Collectively, they knew just four chords and two drum patterns and played them, relentlessly. And then, there are the fireworks at 9:45pm. What an absolute blast that will be for the local wildlife! Would that be the wildlife that 'Land's End' claims to protect, with the car park fees? Hm.
Honestly, avoid this and go elsewhere. Anywhere! Just avoid this absolute trash, on the westernmost edge of England

Hi Gloria M, Thank you for leaving us feedback regarding your most recent visit to Land's End Landmark. We are sorry your visit was not what you expected. It sounds like you visited during one of our event days 'Magic in the Skies', which happens annually. Again we are sorry that this wasn't to your taste, we welcome high volumes of visitors throughout the summer holidays and to make their evening memorable we host live music, with local artists and band from Cornwall and Devon and firework displays. We take wildlife conservation very seriously here and being located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, we would not launch fireworks without taking all the necessary precautions measures to ensure that we are compliant with any regulations. Thank you again for your feedback and visit.

A return visit for me - maybe 4th time, last time circa 10+ years ago. First time visit for my husband who was welcomed to the attraction with a £7 parking fee, albeit administered by a lovely chap called Colin. This place will bring in a variety of visitors, some will want to spend many hours, perhaps a whole day exploring and walking, but for tourists like us only wishing to spend 1-2 hours this fee is way over the top. I actually dismissed this to begin with until I saw the circus that had been created around the sign and my heart sank. Dreadful tacky commercialisation and I hope the site owners take heed of all these negative comments and have a re-think.

The website advises to pre-book parking as they are limiting visitor numbers due to coronavirus. This is not the case. It is more packed and more of a free for all than it usually is in the busy summer season!
There are no social distancing measures in place, no limits to the number of visitors, no limits to the number of people in the shops and toilets. The only place with distance markers is the queue for the sign photos.
During our visit, which was short, I didn't see a single member of staff cleaning or managing queues/visitors.

Thank you for your response regarding your recent visit to Land’s End scribble86. We’re sorry to hear that you were left disappointed by your visit, and felt there was a lack of covid safety in place. We currently operate a pre-booking car parking system online, so that visitor numbers to the site can be controlled at a safe level for the area available to the public. We have experienced large volumes of visitors to the site, and consequently have had to turn guests away on multiple occasions already this summer. We have multiple one-way systems, 2-meter distancing markings for queues, multiple hand sanitising stations, facemask only areas, and large amounts of signage across the site, plus a high level of cleanliness is maintained daily across the entire 100-acre site for guests to feel as safe as possible whilst visiting us. We have had numerous amounts of positive feedback from guests regarding the safety measures in place since reopening, and are sorry to hear that you felt uncomfortable whilst visiting us. Thank you for your feedback, and we hope you will visit us again in the future.
