Due to the current public health situation with regards to COVID-19 we recommend that you check with your travel and accommodation providers, and Public Health England before travelling. For the latest visitor information on COVID-19 please visit


Getting to Spurn Lighthouse
Spurn Lighthouse is located (as one might expect!) at the end of the Spurn peninsula. There is no vehicular access down to the lighthouse, with the sole exception of the Trust' Spurn Safari tours. Access to the lighthouse is via the 3.5 mile walk or cycle routes, which cross the sandy washover area. Please be aware that high tide sees the lighthouse cut off from the mainland, and that it is very dangerous to attempt to cross the washover area when it is covered in water. In order to plan your visit, you can view tide times on the reserve webpage here - the downloads section can be found at the bottom right.

Visitor Information
Children are very welcome, but they must be at least 1.1 metres in height and physically capable of ascending and descending the staircases by themselves unaided.
Under no circumstances can children or babies be carried up or down the staircases, (this includes the use of baby carriers, papooses, etc.)
The lighthouse is over a century old so and some stone floors and stairs may be worn and uneven in places, and the staircase leading to the lantern room is very steep.
Sensible footwear must be worn if you wish to ascend the lighthouse tower. Open toe sandals without heel straps and flip- flops are not suitable.
