Attraction details
Owner description: With the help of a generous grant from the Heritage Lottery Fund, Trinity House renovated the Engine Room at Lizard Lighthouse, retaining some of the old engines. It now also features new exhibition material, an audio visual room and a number of interactive displays. The Lizard Lighthouse Heritage Centre was officially opened in 2009 by HRH The Princess Royal. The distinctive twin towers of Lizard Lighthouse mark the most southerly point of mainland Britain. See displays depicting Trinity House's history, housed in the original engine room. It was commissioned in 1752. For over 250 years, the lighthouse has provided a welcoming landfall light to vessels crossing the Atlantic Ocean. Tours of Lizard Lighthouse are organised under licence from the Corporation of Trinity House.

Parked up in the National Trust car park and only a short walk to the lighthouse and Heritage Centre. Staff really welcoming. Tour of Lighthouse was excellent - our guide (John) was fantastic - His knowledge of the lighthouse was impressive - I especially liked the tales about Spanish Gold! Make sure you sample some of the ice creams & sorbets that are for sale - some of them give a real kick - my wife loved the pink grapefruit and vodka flavour - definitely worth a visit!!

The lighthouse tour was enthralling! I wished it would never end! The views from the top were stunning. My kids loved the museum and we went on to Kynance afterwards. I think this attraction, though, is better saved for a rainy day, as it's mostly indoors.

This was one of my favourite days out. Mick, the tour guide , was brilliant and so kind to my five year old. The heritage centre is informative and fun. The shop lovely and air conditioned. A terrific experience. Really worth the money. Well done to all the volunteers.

Fantastic visit, such a beautiful natural area, so unspoilt, unlike Lands End which is far too commercialized ( please keep it this way ) We went on the tour of the Lighthouse which was very interesting and to be inside and go to the top was great, lovely girl who told us all about it.
There is only a small fee to go into the museum and the Lighthouse, to explore the rest of the are it is free.
I have said 3 -4 hours for the visit as there are so many lovely walks around there, but you can visit the Lighthouse in 1 hour if you are pressed for time.
No visit to Cornwall would be complete without a visit to The Lizard.
