A remote, isolated, pristine-white, solid beacon; a place of innovation and scientific firsts, now also a romantic hideaway and big-hearted family haven, the South Foreland lighthouse stands proud atop the White Cliffs of Dover. It surprises and...more

I love Dover and it's white cliffs and this place is just as lovely. Took a nice walk along the cliffs to get here and it's worth every step. Once there I booked in for a tour and while I waited had a nice cream...More

I done a guided tour of the Light House.Unfortunately there was scaffolding on the outside of the building and work will not be completed until early next year so people are unable to step outside on to the balcony at the top.

When I visited the lighthouse was being painted, so was covered in scaffolding. Inside there are some interesting rooms to see and the views over the English channel are spectacular. This is run by the National Trust, so there is a good cafe, though pricey.
Excellent yet really steep walk to see the lighthouse. Beautiful scenery. Wear good walking shoes and take bottle of water. Recommend it to people who enjoy working. It is really steep in places and shattering walk if one is not accustomed to walking
The lighthouse is by guided tour only. It is accessed via a 40-50 minute walk along the White Cliffs from the National Trust car park and Visitor Centre. Interesting tour by a knowledgeable volunteer. Good views across the cliff and the English Channel towards France....More

The lighthouse tour is not accessible in a wheelchair. I am in my late 50's and found the stairs to the top, and down again quite a task ! There is plenty of seating outside so if someone could go into the cafe and bring out a tray then no problem. Without that help the cafe would also be inaccessible.
