Lizard Point, Cornwall

This is the second part to my previous post, which you can read all about here.

After a lovely night in our sheppards hut in Looe, we were back on the bike and headed along the coast to Lizard Point.

Our Harley

Lizard Point is the most southern part of the UK. A popular walking spot that looks over one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world. It’s covered in green foliage which contrasts beautifully against the sea making for some great scenery and photos.

Funnily enough, Lizard point is not actually named after a lizard. The name is thought to originate from the cornish name “Lys Ardh” which means high court. Over time this was muddled and became Lizard point, which personally I prefer.

You can’t go to Cornwall and not get a cornish pasty, it’s the rule. We did buy flapjacks as well as it was a long walk (any excuse he he).

A lot of people do the South West coastal walk which I’d never heard of before. It spans from Poole to Minehead covering 630 miles. I would have to get my fitness back on track and maybe cut down on the flapjacks before attempting this! Who knows, one day I might conquer the coastal walk.

Seeing as we did this trip in late September, we were extremely lucky with the weather. I’m writing this two weeks later, and it has rained heavily now for three days… and it isn’t due to stop until next week. That’s British weather for you!

An adorable little calf with the mother in one of the surrounding fields. I should be fed up of seeing cows, but I still excitedly point them out every where I go.

Cheers Harley! Thank you for another great trip and thank you BP for having a PG tips machine!

  1. Thank you, Emily, for sharing this lovely Cornwall story. Not a day goes by that I don’t recall the seven days I spent in Cornwall roaming inland and coast, getting lost, and finding places, people, and things that were intriguing, beautiful, and memorable. –MaryGo
