Very interesting place and the tour was very informative. Tour is 1/2 an hour and you see a lot. Just the right length for young kids. Great views from the lantern room. Highly recommended.

Months a great lover of heights, but this was a great experience. Not too hard to get to the top, and the views were stunning. Very knowledgable and friendly staff at the light house. £14 for a family (2+2)ticket, good value 👍
