The most westerly village in England
Sennen Cove boasts one of the loveliest stretches of sand in Cornwall, Whitesands Beach, and still retains much of the atmosphere of an old fishing village. It is a popular spot with surfers and hosts the local surfing club.
There is still a lifeboat station at Sennen and close by there are lobster pots testifying to the continuation of the local fishing industry. The Round House and Capstan Gallery is a 19th century building with a converted net loft and can be found just beyond the lifeboat station. Sennen Cove is 1 mile North of Land's End, and is well placed for walks along the coastal path. There are numerous ancient sites in the area in addition to relics from the once thriving tin mining industry.
Sennen Cove has two slipways, allowing the Tyne class lifeboat to be recovered in the shelter of the breakwater at high tide, or up the launching slipway at low tide. The station also operates an inshore D class lifeboat.
The church of St. Senana is on high ground inland and has a low granite tower.
The Old Success Inn is a 17th century building with views across the bay.
