Lighthouse visitor centres

Eight of our lighthouses are open to the public at certain times of the year


Last updated 20th July 2021 - Our sites are still currently closed for lighthouse tower tours, with the exception of The Lizard Lighthouse - please see their page for further details.

Our Visitor Centre and Gift Shop at Portland Bill is now open every day 10am - 5pm.

South Stack Lighthouse is now offering external tours of the island - please see their page for further details.

Visit one of the eight lighthouses that we open to the public and experience for yourselves the unique life and the often spectacular locations that lighthouse keepers enjoyed. Each lighthouse has an informative guided tour, complete with panoramic views from the lantern room at the top of the lighthouse.

As each lighthouse is an operational aid to navigation performing a vital safety function for the mariner, there are a few restrictions that apply, so to find out more please read the Health and Safety Guidelines to make sure that you get the best out of your visit! If you have any questions about opening hours or admission rates, please remember to contact the lighthouse in advance.

We hope you enjoy your visit!
