About The Lizard
The Lizard (Cornish: An Lysardh) is a peninsula in south Cornwall. It is recognised as the most southerly point of Mainland Britain. It follows therefore that Lizard village, is the most southerly village on the British mainland. The peninsula measures approximately 14 miles (23 km) x 14 miles (23 km). The name 'Lizard' is from the Cornish Language and is probably a corruption of 'lys Ardh' which means 'high court'. The main bedrock of the peninsular is 'Serpentinite' a very distinctive looking rock composed of one or more serpentine group minerals. The rock is dark granite looking with white swirls and flecks and can be seen in many local shops having been polished and made into mementoes such as lighthouses, lamps, ashtrays etc.

Where can our The Lizard taxis meet you?
There are only a few places to meet; one is the Lizard Point Gift shop, right down on the point, but in busy times this can be difficult to get into and out of. A more practical place is in Lizard village if possible, outside the Top House Public House in the main Square. It is .7 miles (1.1 km) from the extreme Lizard Point to the Top House. But don't forget that wherever you are, whether that's out and about, or at your home or holiday address, we can pick you up.
