Withernsea’s Lighthouse is one of only a handful of lighthouses built inland, standing 127 feet (38m) high in the middle of the seaside town.
The base of the lighthouse features RNLI and HM Coastguard exhibits, displays and old photographs.
There is also a local history room with photo’s documents and models from Withernsea’s past including the Queens Hotel and the train station.
Standing only a few houses away from the very spot where 1950’s film star Kay Kendall was born makes the lighthouse the perfect place for a memorial to the glamorous star!
The lighthouse is no longer active and means that visitors are able to climb the 144 steps to the top for the most breath taking views over Withernsea and East Yorkshire – on a clear day you can even see the towers of the Humber Bridge.
We now have an additional gallery space on the grounds, featuring regular photographic and art exhibitions, which is free to view for the public.
We welcome visits from schools and groups at all times of the year.
