Land's End Guidebook

The Land's End Peninsula or West Penwith is a landscape of towering granite cliffs, moors and prehistoric monuments. In this book we follow the north coast along the West Penwith Moors from St Ives to Zennor and the Gurnard's Head. Then it's onto the tin mining landscape of Pendeen and St Just and the famous clifftop tin mines at Levant and Geevor. Next come the glorious surfing beaches of Gwynver and Sennen and past Land's End to Gwenapp Head, Porthgwarra and the clifftop theatre of the Minack at Porthcurno. Just beyond Lamorna and Mousehole the coast starts to soften as we enter Mount's Bay and Newlyn, Penzance, Marazion and St Michael's Mount come into view. Finally onto the lovely family beaches of Praa Sands, Perranuthnoe and Prussia Cove. This book guides you to the ancient monuments, the best beaches, places to visit and walks.

Useful guide

Very useful books which helped us explore the westerly tip of Cornwall

A brilliant guide book

I'd thoroughly recommend this book, lots of lovely tips and information to help you explore the area. Lots of photos too that help put it all in context. Definitely worth the money

Great guide book even for residents!

It is the best guide to this part of Cornwall by far. I live here and grew up in Cornwall and it still has insights and knowledge I didn't have and the way it is laid out compels reading and viewing pictures and maps to take it all in. With no reviews of hotels or accommodation (though it tells you were some places are on the favourite walks) it suits me so well that I bought one last week for my brother's birthday (in his 70s) and he is delighted with it.

A very good read

This guidebook is instantly readable. It is well written and laid out, full of information and helpful advice. Best in its field. Good value too

Good to carry on walks

Slim little book, with a lot of information. And good maps. A must for hikers and car users. They even tell you where to park in the countryside. If you are walking to Ancient sites. A must for Holidays.
