Land's End is a peninsula located at the extreme western tip of Cornwall, Great Britain near Penzance[?]. Visible from Land's End is the Longships Lighthouse. The Longships, a few miles out, is a serpentine and quartz island. Offshore, midway between Land's End and the Scilly Isles, lies the mythical lost land of Lyonesse, referred to in Arthurian literature.
