The Lizard Peninsula
The southernmost tip of England combines a wonderfully mild climate with a beautiful varied coastline. Explore the wooded shores of Loe Pool and then cross the open heath of Goonhilly Downs.
This is a tour that can be enjoyed on so many levels; wild flowers arrive early then flourish through the year in the special habitats of cliffs, hedgerows and Downs. The geology is unique and complex, creating amazing natural formations, as at Kynance Cove, and a thriving cottage industry working the Serpentine stone. Birdwatchers will find plenty to interest them, both on the coast and inland. The powerful influence of the sea on the area is always evident with tales of shipwreck and smuggling woven into the rich Celtic history. And naturally, if you love the seaside, theres plenty of opportunities to take of your boots and paddle on the beaches! Note -Starts Helston, finishes Mullion.
Main attractions: Goonhilly Earth Station, Helford, Helston, Lizard Lighthouse, Mullion, Penrose Estate, Porthallow Vineyard and St. Keverne.
