Plan your visit - things to do

Lands End

Lands End sunset

Sea View House is an ideal base to explore the entire Lands End peninsula where you will find excellent and dramatic cliff top and inland walking.

The beautiful scenery of Land's End has made it one of Britain's favourite destinations for days out. At the most south-westerly point of mainland Britain, you can appreciate fully how the relationship between land and sea is constantly changing.

You can 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.

The Minack Theatre

Minack Theatre

Minack in Cornish means a rocky place and the black headed crag below the theatre has always drawn local fishermen. Until the 1930's they had the gorse filled gully to themselves and the cliffs echoed to the cries of gulls not actors

Many visitors arrive at the Minack imagining it was built by invading Romans. If Caesar's legions had come this far they might have been beguiled by the beauty of the place, but the real truth is as remarkable as this enduring fiction.

Visiting the Minack is a true inspiration. The exhibition centre is open daily. Theatre performances are weekdays from May to September, bookable in advance.

If you wish to visit the theatre we can provide cushions and blankets if required.
