In light of COVID-19, please make sure you check with your travel and accommodation providers before travelling.


Happisburgh Lighthouse was built 1791, one of a pair to mark safe passage around the notorious Haisborough Sands.

Saved from closure by the local community in 1990, the lighthouse is still fully operational and maintained by voluntary contributions.

Visitors can find out about the history and operation of the lighthouse, and climb the 112 steps to view the stunning views from the lantern.
