Land's End is the most further west that you can go in the south of the UK and as the name suggests is where the land ends. Its a well knows starting/ finishing point for cycling and hiking due to its geographical location.

There are places you can hardly pass by on a Cornwall holiday - even if you know that the place itself is nothing special. Land’s End is such a place. You don't get to Land’s End because the cliffs here are particularly dramatic and breathtaking, or because the green hilly landscape in the hinterland is particularly idyllic. You don't come here because you expect great entertainment from the visitor center. Land’s End is a symbolic place: the western end of mainland Britain.
There is something in the name that sounds like wanderlust. It is a turning point (for example on a Cornwall round trip), a way marker, a starting point or an end point. Anyone who departs the south coast of England has an eye on Land’s End and steers towards it from the moment they leave the ferry in Dover. Anyone taking a tour of Cornwall will reach the Bergfest here and head north. If you want to walk along the South West Coast Path, use Land’s End as a starting or ending point.

It's a bit like the Niagara Falls or similar tourist hitspots. You have to have been there, but when you are there you are caught in a tourist circus that is common to a fairground. Thank goodness a few steps to the south are enough, and then it quickly becomes quieter
