Lands End, Minack theatre, Penzance, St Michaels Mount

The day following the wedding some of us headed off for a look around the South Western part of Cornwall. We started by heading down to Lands End at the far South Western end of the mainland of the United Kingdom.

After looking at the miniature houses (the second of which is the Tintagel post office, pictured in an earlier post),


we enjoyed looking out over the beautiful coastline and doing the obligatory standard tourist shots.


They even have a sign here which they will manually adjust (for a fee) to include your home town.


We also got an excellent view of a Royal Navy Rescue helicopter.

P1010674_084The Minack theatre has a beautiful vista with theatre goers watching a play with the ocean in the background. We unfortunately timed it badly and weren’t able to go into the theatre.


We stopped in Penzance for lunch, where I had some excellent Fried Pilchards and Jane had a generously filled Lobster tail ciabatta.


In case you’re interested, there is also a Guinness World Record attempt for the most pirates in one place on June 26th. Tom’s head was the perfect size for this shot.


Just down the road, St Michaels Mount emerges from the sea. We took the boat across since the tide was in. An hour later and we apparently could have walked back via the causeway.
