Land's End Round

The Land's End Round combines the Far West of Cornwall coastal trail with the inland path of St Michael's Way, forming a circular walk exploring the wonderful Land's End Peninsula.

Setting off from Marazion, with the famous St Michael's Mount sitting just off the shore, the walk traverses a dramatic coastline of rugged cliffs and sandy beaches, before running inland through marshland and meadows of St Michael's Way.

This circular walk is perfect for those eager to explore the exciting history associated with the Land's End Peninsula, including the world-famous Pirates of Penzance and the ancient pilgrim's route of the Santiago de Compostela.
