Visit the Lighthouse


We’re taking all the necessary precautions for our re-opening this year, and following government advice. 

Breathtaking Views

Take the 144 steps to the top of the Lighthouse for breathtaking views of the Holderness coastline – on a clear day you can even see the Humber Bridge!

Tranquil Garden

Catch your breath after a climb to the top, or just enjoy a quiet moment in our garden, perhaps with a refreshing drink from our cafe. 

Kay Kendall

The glamorous film star was born just a stones throw from the Lighthouse, where we now look back at her roots and life on the silver screen. 

Local History

Step back in time for a look at local, RNLI and Coastguard history, with exhibits charting Withernsea’s wartime past and more.
