Land's End is a 'must see' for any visitor to Cornwall. A short walk south from Sennen Cove over Pedn-men-du along Mayon Cliff will really give the tourist a true feel of Cornwall. Along the mile or so walk such sites as the Irish Lady and impressive Castle Zawn will be encountered. The rugged coast has always been a danger to unwary mariners - the last shipwreck the 'RMS Mulheim' running ashore at Castle Zawn, on Saturday 22nd March 2003. A little further south lies the ancient cliff castle of Maen Castle. Arrive early before the crowds to allow you to imagine its ancient inhabitants. Pass Gamper as you near Dr. Syntax's Head and Trevescan Cliff. Take refreshments at the Land's End Hotel or explore the Legendary Land's End tourist attraction. Walkers may wish to continue further south to see the Dr. Johnson's Head, the Armed Knight and the impressive rock Arch at Enys Dodnan.
