Tucked away at the end of a narrow country lane is Cape Cornwall. It is in a spectacular location. As National Trust members we parked free of charge in the heritage car park and walked out to the Cape where we weren't disappointed. The sea views of Lands End and the Lizard were simply sensational.

We swerved lands end as my partner promised me, this was the place to see ! I was not disappointed , naturally dramatic with a small car park (national Trust) toilets and a great small kiosk serving homemade cakes, ice cream and drinks, what more do you need? Plenty of space to relax, explore or climb up to the monument.... More

Snack wagon in the NT car park is spot on with mugs of hot tea & coffee, warm pasties & home made cake. Be sure to visit the volunteer coastguards in the look out hut for an inpromptu story & history talk on the local area.

Walked here from St Just. There are public toilets in the car park and a simple refreshment shack, open throughout the summer season, serving local ice cream, homemade sandwiches and tea and coffee served in proper pottery mugs. If you walk from there down towards the buildings, the path takes you behind the cape to a tiny manned look out... More

Cape Cornwall is stunning, but I want to say a huge thanks to the snack van. We picked up a flat tyre that we only noticed just as we got to Cape Cornwall, and given the steep and winding slope and complete lack of signal we were worried about how we would get home. But the ladies in the snack... More

If you want to stand at the tip of England and gaze out into the Atlantic, this is a much more pleasant proposition than the tourist hell-hole of Lands End.

After a walk from St. Just you reach Cape Cornwall with breathtaking views to the Heinz Monument, The Brison Rocks, St. Helens Oratory Ruins (dated back as far as Roman times) and the sea around

We did not bother to get out of the car at Lands End - too commercial. Here you see nature at her best - stunning views with awesome scenery in every direction. We walked around to the coastguards hut where we just sat and absorbed the tranquility. The lady in the NT office was very helpful and the cream tea... More

We chose to visit after reading in the National Trust handbook that this is 'the connoisseurs Land's End' . The lady in the car park kiosk was full of useful information and we spent an hour enjoying a peaceful walk. There is a coastwatch building on the point and a most interesting volunteer talked to us about what they do... More

We visited here after going to lands end earlier on in the day. It was around 9pm after a beautiful hot day and the sun was setting. People were swimming off the little jetty in the waters. I got some stunning photos of the sun set and back ground. Would def visit again esp at that time of day
