User AvatarBy Myles Bacon at 17/03/2016 13:07:42

Flamborough Head Lighthouse will be opening its doors to the public once again for the start of the 2016 season.


Starting from Saturday, 19 March between 12noon and 4pm, staff members from Sewerby Hall and Gardens will offer informative guided tours of this iconic structure.


The tours take place every weekend throughout the year until Sunday, 30 October and daily throughout the local school holidays.


Regular maintenance is carried out every Friday when the lighthouse is closed to the public.


The lighthouse is located on Flamborough Head and offers breathtaking views over Bridlington Bay and the Heritage Coast.


Visitors can climb the 119 steps to the top of the lighthouse to see the magnificent views of the surrounding area, all the while learning about the history of the lighthouse and Trinity House.


Tours cost adults £4, children and over 60s £3 and family (two adults and two children) £12. The lighthouse can also be booked for parties or individuals and has even been used as a romantic and unique location for marriage proposals. Please note that some restrictions on access apply.
