Polpeor Cove

Polpeor cove is also referred to as Lizard Point, as it marks the most southerly point on mainland Britain.  En route to Polpeor Cove you will see the striking Lizard Lighthouse and possibly hear the fog horn! Guided tours are available, check opening times before you set off. It is a short walk of 10-15 minutes from The Top House Inn to the Lizard Lighthouse or you can drive down (single track with passing places) and park at the National Trust car park at the lighthouse. Once you arrive at Polpeor Cove you will  see the derelict former lifeboat station where it was sited before the new station was built at Kilcobben Cove. Bird watchers flock to the cove to see the Cornish Choughs fledge and fly so look out and for them and also basking sharks and seals which are regularly seen in the area.
