The Marconi Centre
The building is owned and maintained by the National Trust and run by the Poldhu Amateur
Radio Club. Admission is free, but the Radio Club do have expenses involved in
opening it. A donation is much appreciated!
There is also an extensive range of souvenirs available. The Centre is manned by volunteer members of the Radio Club, who are only too happy to share their enthusiasm.
Visitors can watch a short video presentation showing the significance of Poldhu and Marconi’s work and can then gain further information from well-designed wall panels. There are short wave radios to listen to and it is well worthwhile to take an interpretation sheet for a self-guided tour of the adjoining field, where the ruins of the old transmitter building can be seen
The Radio club is open on Tuesday and Friday evenings
for members and friends from 19:30
Club meetings are held on the 2nd Tuesday of the month
