Lizard Lighthouse

Lizard lighthouse marks the most southerly point of mainland Britain.  Established in 1752 it is the second oldest working lighthouse in the UK.  It has two octagonal towers, although only the east tower is still operational. The western lantern was removed in 1903.  The Lizard Heritage Centre is open to the public, and you can book a guided tour of the tower.
