The Marconi Wireless Station

In 1900 the Italian inventor Guglielmo Marconi undertook ground-breaking wireless experiments on The Lizard. You can visit Marconi’s two local stations, and see how, with determination and vision, he developed technology on these remote Cornish clifftops that paved the way for today’s instant worldwide communication.

The wireless station is open Monday - Thursday, 12 - 3pm, from 3 April - 1 October and is one mile east of Lizard Point along the coast path. The Marconi Centre is located at Poldhu and is run by Poldhu Radio Amaetur Club.
