Land's End Wildlife


If you have binoculars don’t forget to bring them because Land’s End is a legendary place for wildlife watchers. Keep an eye open for Gannets, Fulmars, Kittiwakes, Shags, Razorbills and even the Cornish Chough, once extinct in the county but now making a welcome return.

If you’re lucky, you may catch sight of grey seals, basking sharks and even dolphins in the waters below the high cliffs.  During the spring and summer, the cliff-tops at Land’s End also burst into colour as Gorse, Heather, Thrift and Sea Campion flower.

To find out more about the wildlife around Land’s End visit the RSPB Wildlife Discovery Centre located on the cliff path below the famous signpost (open from early Spring to late Autumn).

Admission to the cliffs around Land’s End is free of charge - you only pay for car parking. We regularly maintain the cliff paths, making them suitable for families, as well as serious walkers.

Why not pick-up your walking guide from the Visitor Centre upon arrival? Alternatively, download our iPad app for a more in depth guide.
