Lizard is a village on the Lizard peninsula in western Cornwall, found at the very end of the peninsula close to Lizard Point itself. It is thus ten miles south of Helston, and is the most southerly village on the island of Great Britain. In the whole of the United Kingdom, only the villages of the isles of Scilly lie further south.
The parish church is dedicated to St Winwallo and is the most southerly in mainland Great Britain. It is built of local serpentinite stone and stands in the hamlet of Landewednack, now an adjunct to Lizard village.
Lizard is principally a tourist centre serving visitors who have come to see Lizard Point and to buy the many souvenirs and items wrought of local serpentine stone polished to a high sheen. Its large village green is surrounded by cafés and gift shops.
Lizard Lighthouse, the oldest mainland light in Cornwall, is situated half-a-mile south of the village. It has twin towers and was erected in 1752 although there had been a light here since 1619. The Lizard lifeboat station, operated by the Royal National Lifeboat Institution, stands at Kilcobben Cove half-a-mile east of the village.
The Top House, Lizard, Cornwall, is the most southerly pub in the United Kingdom apart from the Turk's Head on St Agnes, Isles of Scilly.
