Day out at Land's End

We got woken up early on Tuesday as we did every day of our holiday by our children, once we had eaten our breakfast and got dressed my wife and I packed the kids into the car and started our journey.

We had decided we were going to go out and visit Land's End.


Like most of our journeys errrrr I mean all of our journeys this holiday its was full of new villages we'd never driven through before this in itself caused us all sorts of disagreements due to our silly sat nav.

Well we finally got to Land's End and to be honest the weather was ok, it was a wee bit breezy but at least it wasn't raining.



Due to all the recent terrible weather, unfortunately only two of the four attractions they have there were working. Oh well we thought we'll just have to make do with those and enjoy them lol.

One was a 4D ride called 20,000 leagues under the sea and the other was King Arthur's Quest, both were good and the kids enjoyed them, well enjoyed is the wrong word to use on the King Arthur's Quest one the boys screamed all the way round lol.


 


Once we had been on both these attractions we went to the Land's End 'famous sign' this is the last sign post before you fall off the cliff face lol, you can have your picture taken here and see how far it is to New York and John O Groats.


We then followed the lovely coastal path up to 'the first and last house' its name gives it away it is literally the first and last refreshment house at Land's End. 


The views from here were amazing, you can see for miles and miles, well literally all you can see in one direction is sea lol.

 



They have a RSPB visitors centre which was worth a little visit down to to read about what sea life you may be able to get a peak of from the cliff tops.


Before the visit was over we let the boys play on the lovely adventure play area which features its own life boat which kids can climb up inside and play on.


 

 


On the way back we drove to Falmouth and parked up and had a wonder round, again this was a town we'd never been to before, so it was a nice little stop off before we made our way back to Coombe Mill.
