How to get here

Car

Porthcurno is situated just three miles away from Land's End, the most south-westerly point of Cornwall.
If you are driving from Penzance, follow the signs to Land's End on the A30. Turn left at the sign for St Buryan, "Wartime Telegraph Museum" (that's us!) and "Minack Theatre". Keep going straight through St Buryan village and after about 2 miles of narrow lanes, take the left turn to Porthcurno. Non-disabled visitors park at the main car park at the bottom of the hill where there is a charge from Easter to September.
