Land’s End tweed
At Britain’s most south-westerly point, summer sunsets are a blaze of colour. Vivid pinks and purples are splashed across the sky and the sea.
The headland itself is a resilient granite. While some of Cornwall’s other cliffs are craggier or more imposing, none of them have the same attraction as Land’s End.
And that draw isn’t new. As far back as Victorian times, there are records of up to 100 sightseers a day. Look out to the Atlantic, though, and you’ll see why people make the journey.
Our Land’s End tweed is all about the bold hues of summer sunsets – vibrant pinks and purples.
But look closer and you’ll see a bit more in a geometric checked: we’ve balanced the colours with soft sea greens and the rich golden granite of the cliffs.
- The torch for the 2012 London Olympics started its relay journey round Britain from Land’s End.
- In the Celtic nations of Cornwall, there’s a native language called Kernuak which shares its linguistic roots with Welsh. The Kernuak name for Land’s End is Penn an Wlas.
- Fancy a challenge? People have reached John O’Groats (Scotland’s north-eastern tip) by bus, hitchhiking and even in a completely straight line.
