My husband and I paid our £1.50 each to climb the winding stairs of the lighthouse. I didn’t think the stairs were ever going to end but when they did, the experience was worth the wait. The views were stunning, you could see for miles...More

It is quite a day out walking from the Whitby Abbey, down the 119 steps and around the shopping area to the lighthouse. The peer is quite windy on any given day so take caution. It is relatively inexpensive to go up the left lighthouse....More

£1.50 entry fee. Great value. Great views from the top. Bit tight on the steps but luckily nobody came down as we went up. Hard work getting up but worth the effort.
