Lizard Village

The Lizard village is Britain’s most southerly village and just a short stroll from the Lizard Point, the most southerly tip of the mainland. The village itself centres around the Lizard Green and offers a pub and a cluster of cafes and shops, many of them selling gifts made of the local serpentine rock.

The cliffs around the Lizard are one of the few places to spot the Cornish Chough, a bird closely associated with the county, in the wild and variety of marine wildlife can be spotted close by.

The Lizard lighthouse has a visitor centre worth a visit with a number of exhibits and fun activities on offer.

It is also home to the Lizard Lifeboat Station, one of the most remote stations in Great Britain which requires the crew to run down 200 steps each time they respond to a shout.
