Updated 15th September 2020. We are currently closed - Keeping visitors and guides safe is our top priority. In light of recent Government advice around coronavirus, we have made the decision to close our visitor centre doors until further notice. Please note that when the Visitor Centre is closed, there is no access to the island or the steps on the approach.
We encourage everyone to follow the Government’s guidelines to keep each other safe and well. We hope that in the coming months we will be able to welcome you to our visitor centres once again.
The historic South Stack Lighthouse is located on a small island reached via a descent of 400 steps down the steep mainland cliffs.
Visitors may tour the former lighthouse engine room before climbing to the top of the lighthouse. South Stack is a wonderful place to watch thousands of breeding seabirds including guillemots, razorbills and puffins.
Tours of South Stack Lighthouse are organised by South Stack Ynys Lawd Ltd. under licence from the Corporation of Trinity House.
