Get around

See

  • Lizard Point - England's most southerly point - a bleak and dramatic place. But whilst you will have to pay a fee to go to Lands End, Lizard Point is actually further south and you can park and look straight out over the sea.
  • Goonhilly Satellite Earth Station one of the worlds greatest satellite communication centres, located at goonhilly downs. Admission is around £6, special fares apply for children, families, students and seniors. Opening times are a bit unusual, check their website for more details.
  • National Seal Sanctuary (phone 01326 221 361, open all year apart from Christmas day) Admission fee is £9.50, specials fares apply to children, students and seniors. Located in Gweek. Essentially a few pools containing seals, although the cute baby ones on the promotional leaflet are only likely to be present during the baby season; but the older and more infirm seals who can't 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, special fares apply to children, students and seniors.
