The name Land's End is used for the headland and cliffs which face the Atlantic Ocean, and for the Visitor Attraction that attracts over 400,000 visitors every year.
Land's End is famous for its iconic signpost that shows the distance, 874 miles, to John o' Groats, the most north-easterly point of the UK, the distance, 3147 miles, to New York across the Atlantic Ocean, and the distance, 28 miles, to the Isles of Scilly. The signpost also shows the current date, so that visitors' photographs are easily dated.
