Day 4 - Cook breakfast -> Merry Maidens -> Minack Theatre -> Land's ends

The next morning after home cooked breakfast, we visited the merry madiens. This was followed by Minack Theatre and Land’s end.
The Merry Maidens, also known as Dawn's Men (a likely corruption of the Cornish Dans Maen "Stone Dance") is a late neolithic stone circle
located 2 miles (3 km) to the south of the village of St Buryan, in Cornwall, United Kingdom.

It is a smaller and similiar version of the stonehenge and there is no entry fee!

Our nest destination was the Minack Theatre, one of the major attraction of Cornwall.
The (Cornish: Gwaryjy Minack) is an open-air theatre, constructed above a gully with a rocky granite outcrop jutting into the sea (minack from Cornish meynek means a stony or rocky place). The theatre is at Porthcurno, 4 miles (6.4 km) from Land's End in Cornwall, England.[1] The season runs each year from May to September, and by 2012 some 80,000 people a year see a show, and more than 100,000 pay an entrance fee to look around the site.[2] [3] It has appeared in a listing of the world's most spectacular theatres.

After the theatre, the next destination was Land's end.
Land's End (Cornish: Penn an Wlas or Pedn an Wlas) is a headland and holiday complex in western Cornwall, England. It is the most westerly point of mainland Cornwall and England, is within the Penwith peninsula and is about eight miles (13 km) west-south-west of Penzance at the western end of the A30 road. It houses Iconic signpost plus attractions including exhibitions, film shows, farm park and animal centre.
