Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Sadly it was closed when we walked past in late Oct. It looks like one of the huts can now be rented out as a holiday cottage!
According to the NT website it is open Monday- Thursday 12-3pm (weather permitting). From 10th April – 30th October 2022. Entry: Donations welcome.

Great to see this place on our walk. We'd visited the Telegraph museum in Portcurno this trip and learnt about the history of communication that went out across the world from the little cove using the thick wires that went under the sea. So this little hut was the just the place we needed to see to round the picture of communication history.

If you’re interested in radio or early communications then you will find this interesting. The volunteers who are here are friendly and helpful and have lots of information about the history along with local knowledge. Well worth a trip to visit, don’t forget to sign the visitors book and if you fell so inclined drop a small voluntary contribution in the box to show your appreciation.

We lucked out when walking from Lizard along the coastal path: the Marconi Wireless Station was open and manned. The highly knowledgeable gentleman was generous with his time and told a fascinating story of Marconi and the birth of wireless communication. If it's open when you walk by, be sure to stop!

If you are taking one of the circular walks of the Lizard peninsular and enjoying the spectacular views, and meadow flowers, plan to take half an hour to listen to the stories of pioneering communications work that took place in these unassuming huts.
If you have an interest in the physics of communication or the history of electronics then all the better. The guide we encountered was very knowledgeable and able to adapt his talk to the level of understanding of the visitors and it was half an hour well invested in the company of a very pleasant gentleman

An unexpected addition to the walk. The volunteer guide was enthusiastic and knowledgeable and she was fun to listen to. The walk guide book I had with me did give me some basic facts but listening to her talk was much more interesting.

Some people will absolutely love spending a little time here in this hut with all sorts of amazing wireless kit. It's a must to poke your head round the door even if it's not a subject of great interest to you, because of the historic achievements. A nice feature on the coastal path walking from the Lizard towards the church cove lifeboat station, another impressive feat.

This place has not been open long and we found it charming. We stumbled upon it while walking round from Church Cove on the South West Coastal Path. The volunteers staffing it were full of fun facts and throughly enjoying their work. Great little NT site.

We arrived after we passed the place on the coastal walk. The gentleman there told us all about what the equipment was used for and it worked. It was an enjoyable 40 mins-ish. If you are in the area it is worth a visit.
