Lizard Point and Lizard Village

Lizard Point and Lizard Village

Lizard is the name of the whole peninsula and of the village and point which is the most southerly in the UK.

Famous for its serpentine, the base rock of the area named because of its resemblance to a snakes skin, the Lizard Peninsula is an area of designated scientific interest.

The serpentine supports a flora peculiar to this habitat.

Lizard village is part of Landewednack parish and associated with Landevennec in Brittany.

The parish church of St Wynwallow is believed to have been founded during the 6th Century, by a monk named Guenole as a daughter church of the abbey of Landevennec.

Walkers will find an amazing variety of walks which can be started at The Lizard which explore both the east and west sides of the peninsula and the most southerly point itself.

For visitors with an interest in birdlife, choughs have once again returned to Cornwall after being absent for a large number of years and are now breeding on the cliffs near Lizard Point. During the breeding season a telescope and expert help is available to observe these magnificent birds from a distance as they wheel around the cliffs above their nesting site. Their bright red bill and legs and their unique wing style make it easy to identify them and with the expert help at hand you stand a good chance of seeing them.
