Discovering the Lizard

A half day walk that visits some of the rarest habitat in Europe with some very special wildflowers, takes in a secret cove, spectacular cliffs, ancient sites and all this close to the home of the Royal Navy’s helicopters!

As a National Nature Reserve and Special Area of Conservation The Lizard peninsula is one of the most special places in Britain. The unusual geology here creates habitats for some of the UK’s rarest species, this walk gives you the opportunity to see plants that grow nowhere else in the country – the roll-call of wild flowers is staggering.

Wildlife encounters on this walk could include fantastic views of breeding sea birds including fulmars and gulls (at the right time of year!) some of the rarest plants in Europe and the iconic Cornish Chough
