Two places to tick off your “to see” list in one day – Cornwall

Just a fifteen minute drive between each of these iconic Cornish attractions, there is no excuse to not get out there and explore both of these sites.

Today me and A started off at the Minack Theatre. A fully functioning theatre that is built into a cliff face, above the Atlantic ocean. This is open all year round, with productions put on for all to see.

This place can get really busy, even mid-week, so it is best to get here early if you want to take some pictures without the whole Smith family staring in them.

The views are incredible, if you have a camera, take it! Although I must tell you that the pictures really don’t do this place justice.

There is a little cafe at the top with thee most stunning views of the water and a hidden, golden beach. The water here is an incredible Turquoise colour. I don’t think there was one person around who didn’t say “wow” when they peered over the edge.

One thing I must say is, my *Plum & Ashby tote bag done me proud today. I had my camera bag in there along with all the usual unnecessary stuff us girls carry with us, oh and I managed to squeeze my fluffy jacket in there. I really didn’t need that today, I am pretty sure I have burnt my cheeks a little. *If you like my super useful tote, check out the P&A online store, they stock some beautiful gifts (for yourself). This is another one of my favourite small UK brands!

After a little refuelling in the cafe we headed off to Lands End. A place I have longed to visit.

LANDS END.

Britain’s most South-Westerly point.

Again this is a very popular tourist destination and so photographs without five other families in them, are hard to get. There are visitors from all around the world trying to get their own family photo album snaps, so I would try to get out early and avoid the mid-day rush.

With this area being so popular, I shouldn’t have been so shocked when I realised you had to pay to have a photograph with the iconic Lands End sign post. Of course I paid. You can’t go all that way and not have a picture with the sign. It’s a famous sign! {the family before us asked for the words #Sqaudgoals on theirs}…each to their own.

 

Personally, this area isn’t as pretty as Minack Theatre, but it is a place that I would urge you all to go and see. It was one on my bucket list…big fat satisfied ticket next to that one. And if you feel up to walking from the bottom to the top (Lands End to John O’Groats) then I won’t stop you. After all it’s only 874 miles.

Well then, what’s stopping you? Go and plan you visit…
