I was shown around by one the the volunteer guides who are drawn from Amateur Radio Enthusiasts, it was really interesting to learn about the early days of radio transmission and the amazing work that Mr Marconi undertook.

We popped into the Marconi Centre while staying at The Lizard and were very interested to learn about the first transatlantic radio signal to be sent and to see so many different artefacts, from old radio valves to current radio sets used by the local Amateur radio club. The volunteers running the Centre were very happy to talk to us and tell us all about the history of the Centre, Marconi and the sending of that first signal and they were very knowledgeable. On leaving the Centre, we had a wander around outside to see the monument and where the original building was sited. We spent a very interesting couple of hours here.

The centre has limited opening hours and is run by volunteers. We arrived just as it was closing but the lovely guide stayed open for us. We were shown a short, interesting film and he then explained a lot about Marconi and the history of the place as well as about the radio club that uses the building now. His enthusiasm was infectious! This is on a beautiful site with stunning views.

Great historic site, with minimal information. This is amazing and certainly worth a visit to see where telegraph transmission began.
