  • Whilst out walking on the South West Coast Path near Poldhu cove on The Lizard on New Years Day we came across the Marconi Centre. One of the best Visitor Centres I have seen. Manned by incredibly wel...  more »

  • Interesting place to visit as it is the birthplace of long range radio transmission and ultimately today's world wide web.
  • Great place. Check tge web site for opening times as not open all of the time
  • Hard to find. Out on headland, for obvious reasons. This new building is a reconstruction of the original, and contains a museum telling the early 1900's Marconi story. Lots of wireless memorabilia and a working amateur radio station. Outside is the windswept site of the original buildings (just foundations now), and masts. There is also a monument on the Coast path. National Trust, but no admission charge, so well worth 30 minutes.
  • Very interesting and informative historical facility, incredibly knowledgeable volunteer staff! I'd highly recommend a visit! Signs to the building from the parking area leave you to find the building blind though.
