Cornish favourites: Cape Cornwall

Cape Cornwall is the only Cape in England and is so-called because until the 19th century it was thought to overlook the meeting of the English Channel and St George’s Channel (they actually meet at Gwennap Head, near Land’s End). A climb up the Cape headland to the stack offers panoramic views of Lands End, Sennen Cove, the Brisons rocks, the Isles of Scilly and the Wolf Rock lighthouse.

It’s a short drive from St Just or you can walk there if you are feeling energetic. There is a sea pool for you to swim in if you like at Priest Cove, walks around the coast and up to the stack and there are toilets in the National Trust car park. There is also a van where you can buy ice-cream from, including my favourite, Gooseberry 🙂

  1. Despite having visited several times, I had no idea that it was called Cape Cornwall. Gooseberry ice cream? That sounds interesting. 🙂
