{{ event.description }}

The Lizard (Cornish: An Lysardh) is a peninsula in Britain and part of Cornwall in the South West. The name may be derived from the Cornish expression Lys Ardh, which means High Court. The Lizard contains Britain's most southerly point, The Lizard Point.

Get in

By plane

FlyBe, Aer Lingus, Ryanair and Scilly Skybus all operate flights to Newquay.

By bus

National Express buses go to TruroCamborneFalmouth and Redruth. Local buses by Kernow down the Lizard peninsula from Helston, calling at most attractions en-route.

By train

There are train stations in Truro and Redruth with direct connection to London and West England, and there is a branch line to Falmouth Docks. However, none are terribly convenient for the Lizard itself. You'll need to get a bus from Falmouth to Helston, then change to another bus to get to the Lizard.
