Lands End (Cornish: Penn an Wlas or Pedn an Wlas) is a headland and holiday complex in western Cornwall, England. It is the most westerly point of mainland Cornwall and England, is within the Penwith peninsula and is about eight miles (13 km) west-south-west of Penzance at the western end of the A30 road. The actual Land’s End or Peal Point, is a modest headland compared with nearby headlands such as Pedn-men-dhu overlooking Sennen Cove and Pordenack, to the south. The present hotel and tourist complex is at Carn Kez, 200 m south of the actual Land’s End. Lands End has a particular resonance because it is often used to suggest distance. Lands End to John o' Groats in Scotland is a distance of 838 miles (1,349 km) by road and this Lands End to John o' Groats distance is often used to define charitable events such as end-to-end walks and races in the UK. Lands End to the northernmost point of England is a distance of 556 miles (895 km) by road.
