The coastline of the Land's End peninsula between St Ives and Penzance is one of the most beautiful in Britain, with rugged granite cliffs dotted with the ruins of old tin mines. In spring and early summer the clifftops are carpeted with a dazzling array of wild flowers. Inland, the moors glow purple and gold with heather and gorse in late summer and are littered with quoits, standing stones, stone circles and other mysterious remains. As well as the delightful port of St Ives, with its narrow winding streets and picturesque harbour, the path visits the pretty fishing villages of Mousehole, Lamorna and Sennen Cove; the tiny hamlets of Porthgwarra and St Leven, the open-air Minack Theatre, perched spectacularly on the cliffs above beautiful Porthcurno Bay; the sleepy mining village of St Just, and the old seaport of Penzance.
