    Are there any wild camp spots near Lands End. We intend going to see the fireworks there in a few weeks time and depending when they finish it may be too late to get back on site.:Smile:

    We stayed on a council run car park at Long Rock, between Penzance and Marazion this weekend. 24 hours parking is £5.70. Lovely view of St Michaels Mount, and right by the sea. Trucks use it too. There is a pub onsite, and a cafe during the day. It is on the bus route for Penzance. There is also parking on the jetty in Marazion which is £10 but we were too big to get in there.

    Hope this helps.

    You often find wild campers on side roads near there - I have heard they are cracking down on wild camping in Cornwall so you may get moved on -There are a couple of good campsites at Sennen Cove and Lands End is and easy stroll from there - we have done it a number of times.

    Hi all, I live near here and fancied an overnight stay at the Long rock/Marazion car park, yes £5.70 for 24 hours but the sign shows a no camping sign ?????? How does that work, will contact the local council and clarify as this is a great spot.

    No camping means just that.....no camping.

    over night PARKING is allowed, but not over night sleeping.
