The Lizard Penninsula is made up of a number of villages. The largest of these is Mullion which is home to a number of shops and galleries. It also has a fine selection of pubs, cafes and restaurants as well as an attractive harbour.

Between the village and the harbour is Mullion Meadows, home to the Trenance Chocolate factory as well as a cluster of craft shops and a tea room.

It was on the cliffs near Mullion, above Poldhu Cove, that the first transatlantic radio signals were sent by Marconi in 1901. Today, that site is home to the Marconi Centre where visitors can learn all about the significance of his experiment.
