Getting to Poldhu

By car, take the A3083, signposted The Lizard. About 300m after the roundabout at the Lizard end of the Naval Air Station, take a right turn signposted Cury and Poldhu Cove. Follow this road through the village of Cury and down to the cove. After the bridge, take the right turn (DANGEROUS!) up towards the residential home (the old hotel). Ignore threats of wheel clamping. Just before the entrance to the residential home, you will see a car park on your left. Park here and walk up the footpath to the Centre. There is some disabled parking at the top by the Centre if needed.   

Coaches : There is easy coach access and coaches may park and turn in our car park.

By bus, take the service 537 from Helston to The Lizard, via Cury, Poldhu and Mullion.

Buses are approximately hourly. See for a full timetable.

Service 82 links Helston to rail services at Truro.
