The Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall is the most southerly point of the UK mainland.
An area of the peninsula covering 16.62 square kilometres (6.42 sq mi) is designated a national nature reserve because of its coastal grasslands and heaths, and The Lizard also contains three Sites of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI).
