Not only is the scenery at Lands End steeped in natural beauty, there are also a variety of attractions for visitors to enjoy.

Visit the multi-sensory shows such as 'The Relentless Sea' - that documents a man's heroic struggle with the sea. The show is filmed so that you as the viewer become one of the rescue team responsible for saving the man.
