Land's End, Cornwall, Longship's lighthouse visible in the distance.
Land's End is a headland and small settlement in west Cornwall, England, within the United Kingdom. It is located on the Penwith peninsula approximately 13 km west-southwest of Penzance.
Land's End is the extreme westerly point on the mainland of England.
Land's End has a particular resonance because it is often used to suggest distance. Land's End to John o' Groats in Scotland is a distance of 1349 km by road and this Land's End to John o' Groats distance is often used to define races, walks or charitable events in the UK.
The Longships, a group of rocky islets are just over 1,6 km offshore of Land's End, and the Isles of Scilly lie approximately 45 km southwest– the mythical lost land of Lyonesse (referred to in Arthurian literature) was supposedly located between Scilly and the mainland.
