Visitors & Walks

Visitors To The Lizard

The Trustees of The Lizard Charity welcome you and ask that you treat the land with respect and care. Please respect the Countryside Code, and if you bring dogs, please make sure that they are kept under control and that you clean up after them. We want The Lizard to be a place that everyone, young and old, can safely enjoy.

Walks on and around The Lizard

There is a public footpath on The Lizard 9-acres, running west to east between the black gate and the A11.

There is also a bridleway running between Browick Road and Rightup Lane, via Lizard Lane, that crosses The Lizard 9-acres at its eastern end.

The Lizard Circular Walk

This walk was established some years ago by Norfolk County Council. Apart from the piece that is on The Lizard 9-acres, the walk crosses privately owned fields, and a disused railway embankment, which is held in trust by Friends of the Earth. Negotiations are currently taking place to discuss the future of this walk.

All the land that this walk passes through is part of The Lizard and Wades Pit County Wildlife Site.

From The Lizard Walks car park, walk along The Lizard road, pass under the railway bridge and the two houses on the left-hand side, and take the path that leads down between the trees. Cross over a ditch via a small bridge and follow the boardwalk to a another bridge over the River Tiffey. The boardwalk continues around the edge of a meadow to a flight of steps leading up to a disused railway embankment. Turn right, and follow the embankment until you reach another flight of steps leading down to join the bridleway. The path passes through a gate to cross another meadow and then a bridge takes you over the River Tiffey again. Aim straight ahead towards another gate and once through this, you are on The Lizard 9 acres. Turning right and walking around the meadow, follow alongside the river, passed the viewing tower and you will come to a black gate at the end of The Lizard road. Walking down this road will bring you back to the railway bridge and the car park.
