The Lizard Lighthouse and Heritage Centre

The Lizard Lighthouse and Heritage Centre

Well and truly a fantastic day out and well worth a visit. The Lizard Lighthouse is Cornwall’s most southerly land lighthouse and one of the largest in the world. This real Lighthouse has been shining a light for over 260 years, guiding ships safely home, and it is the only Lighthouse you can climb in Cornwall. With one amazing journey to the top you will come face to face with the lens, see breathtaking views and lose yourself in the romance of these amazing icons. Situated on the SW coast path and next to the stunning Lizard Point which you can wander down to and explore.

With the help of the National Lottery, the Lighthouse Engine Room has been developed into an interactive learning centre. There’s something for everyone. Be that powering up the foghorn, understanding satellite navigation for the Mariner, to the food you need on rock Lighthouses. Listen to Lighthouse Keepers stories, track ships live as they battle through stormy waves, build a giant foam lighthouse, as tall as you! Send a message using Morse Code and learn to spell your name, using Semaphore Flags.

If you plan to take children they must be at least 1.1metres in height and physically capable of ascending and descending the staircases by themselves unaided. Under no circumstances can children or babies be carried up or down the staircases in the lighthouse.

Sensible footwear must be worn and anyone suffering from vertigo, heart or respiratory conditions is advised not to ascend the tower.

Parking is free for National Trust members or you can park in the village which is about a ten minute walk away.

Please check the website for opening times and prices as it is only open in the summer months.
