The Lizard Marconi Wireless Station

The Lizard Marconi Wireless Station in Lizard, Cornwall, United Kingdom | Attraction | Museum | Radio | Historic Site

The Lizard Marconi Wireless Station at The Lizard in Cornwall, UK is the oldest surviving Marconi Wireless Station in the World, and now also a Museum and amateur Radio station which are run by the National Trust. Set up by the Marconi Company at the end of 1900 to supply a ship-shore Radio service for ships passing Lizard Point, it was also a research centre and monitoring station for the trans Atlantic Poldhu Wireless station at Poldhu Cove, Mullion. Today the Museum housed in refurbished original buildings is a fascinating place to visit for a walk back in time to exactly what the station was like at the start of the 20th century, and equipment is demonstrated to visitors by volunteers. The Lizard Marconi Wireless Station has a display of old Radio components and headphones and an amateur Radio station in the adjoining room where visiting licensed amateurs may operate for a small charge.
