Visit Lizard Point
Famous Lizard Point in South Cornwall is the most southerly tip in mainland England. The Lizard Peninsula is home to a wide variety of wildlife, including seals, dolphins, and seabirds. Stop in at the National Trust Wildlife Watchpoint, where you can talk to the volunteers and view the small but informative display. Take a short walk to the iconic Lighthouse, a fascinating place with knowledgeable guides and interactive displays.
The unique geology of the Lizard Peninsula, including the rare serpentine rock, makes it a fascinating destination for geology enthusiasts. You can take a guided tour of the area or explore on your own, learning about the different types of rock and their origins.
This part of the coast is known for shipwrecks. The rocky coastline and unpredictable weather conditions have caused many a vessel to run aground in the area over the centuries. In fact, the Lizard Point Lifeboat Station, which was established in 1859, has launched more than 300 times to assist vessels in distress in the waters around the peninsula. The station is still in operation today, and the volunteers who staff it have helped to save countless lives over the years.
Lizard Point is dog friendly all year round.
