Britain's most southerly point

The Lizard [1] is a peninsula in Cornwall in the South West of England. The name maybe derived from the cornish expression Lys Ardh, which means High Court. The Lizard contains Britain's most southerly point, Lizard Point.

Get around[edit]

See[edit]

  • Lizard Point - Britain's most southerly point, a bleak and dramatic place, but it is free unlike Lands End, and Lizard Point is actually further south. You can park and look straight out over the sea.
  • Goonhilly Earth Station one of the world's greatest satellite communication centres, located at Goonhilly downs. The site is closed until further notice, but it has received funds to be redeveloped into a new attraction.
  • National Seal Sanctuary (phone 01326 221 361, open all year apart from Christmas Day) Located in Gweek. Essentially a few pools containing seals, but the cute baby ones on the promotional leaflet are only likely to be present only during the baby season, but the older and more infirm that cannot be released back into the wild are there all year round.
  • The Trebah Garden has subtropical plants with year round color. Admission is around £2.60 to £5.80 depending on time of year, but special fares apply to children, students and seniors.
  • Kynance Cove. Cliff walks, wild flowers and geological features  edit
