I'd arranged with our host for breakfast at 7:00am as we wanted to get on the road early however when we fronted up at the kitchen, the chef was a little startled.

Oct 12, 2011 - Land's End

No trip to the South of England should miss Lands End, Cornwall The most westerly point in mainland England. 2500 miles across the Atlantic Ocean is America. What a total and utterly rip-off. When you get to the end, there is a gargantuan hotel with restricted access and parking. Not even a clear view anywere of the sea. Penzance, Cornwall we managed to whip through on our way to St. Michael's Mount
