Adults £5;  children (16 and under) £1.  We regret that children under 1 metre in height are not able to climb the 112 steps to the lantern .

We regret that dogs are not allowed in the lighthouse on public open days, though visitors are welcome to wait with them outside. Dogs must be kept on a lead within the lighthouse compound. Both lighthouse cottages are privately owned, so please respect their privacy.
