Happisburgh Lighthouse Open Days

COVID-19 Update – April 2021

We are currently reviewing the situation with regard to open days, which we hope to be able to allow later in the summer, subject to government guidance, and availability of volunteers. 

Numbers are likely to be at a reduced capacity, and pre-booking may be required.

We will keep you updated on our social media pages and the website.

Visitors are welcome to walk up to the boundary wall, but please respect the privacy of the adjacent cottages, which are privately owned.

In the meantime, thank you for your continued support for Happisburgh Lighthouse, and we hope to be able to welcome you back to the lighthouse once we are able to open again.


If you would like to support us and make a donation to the lighthouse, you can do so via our JustGiving page:


Visit the oldest working lighthouse on the Norfolk Coast and the only independently operated lighthouse in the UK.

Postcode for SatNav: NR12 0PY

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.
