Land's End

Beautiful scenery

£6 to park and full of overpriced tourist trinkets and charging the attractions area should be avoided. The scenery, and the walks around the coast should not. It doesn't matter the weather, the sea and the cliffs are always mesmerising.

The scenery was superb, but Oh Dear! the 'Attractions' were overpriced and amateurish! Worth a visit for the scenery, but avoid the attractions unless you have children under age 10!

5 stars for location, 2 stars for tacky attractions, 4 stars for Greeb Farm

There is some fun stuff for the kids to enjoy, and the most interesting thing is the real RNLI lifeboat which you can enter. Of course you can bypass the attractions and see the real star of the show, the dramatic coastline and the view towards the lighthouse past Kettles Bottom. While you're there, walk 200 metres or so to the south of the attractions to Greeb Farm. This understated part of the Lands End complex is actually a wonderful opportunity for children to get up close to farm animals (and hold them), experience what this genuine 18th century smallholding was like for those who lived there - and even try their hand at pottery with the local craftspeople in various workshops.

Stunning location marred by tacky gift shops and attractions.
