St Just and Land’s End

Thanks to the popularity of the BBC’s adaptation of Winston Graham’s novels, the beautiful areas of St Just and Land’s End are sometimes affectionately referred to as ‘Poldark Country’.

Occupying the most westerly point of Cornwall, this area was once the mining centre of the peninsula and therefore possesses one of the richest histories of the region. Dotted throughout the wild and rugged landscape of St Just and Land’s End are countless natural and man-made treasures.

The first two weeks of July in St Just centre around the Lafrowda Arts Festival, an annual, family-friendly event that comprises live music, exhibitions, street performances, parades and food stalls. The two-week event culminates in Lafrowda Day itself: a celebration of St Just’s history and heritage.

Visit Land’s End in the height of summer and you’ll likely be treated to an evening of ‘pyrotechnical wizardry’, backed by atmospheric music: Magic in the Skies comprises 12 firework display events spread out over late July and the whole of August.

Year on year, one of the area’s biggest tourism draws is the spectacular Minack Theatre. This open-air venue is nestled into a clifftop spot, high above the crashing waves of the Atlantic Ocean, and offers a packed schedule of events including live music, comedy, storytelling and theatrical performances. But visitors don’t have to purchase a performance ticket to take in the grandeur of this world-famous site: they can explore the grounds all year round for a small admission fee.
