Gibb's Hill Lighthouse, Southampton Parish
(4.5/5 based on 750+ reviews on the web)
One of the oldest cast iron lighthouses in the world, Gibb's Hill Lighthouse was built in 1844 by the British Army Royal Engineers. The 117 feet (35 m) tall lighthouse stands on top of Gibb's Hill and features a plaque and viewpoint that commemorates the visit of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. Climb the 185 steps to the top of the lighthouse to be rewarded with a stunning panoramic view of the area. Visit the lighthouse tea room, in the restored cottage of the lighthouse keeper, for a meal at the foot of the tower. Gibb's Hill Lighthouse is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our online itinerary creator, Southampton Parish Edition.

  • The oldest working light house, but the walk up to the top was hard and long. Are tour guide grandfather ran this light house for years and she still lives close by. The veiw was breathe taking. 
  • Beautiful view. A bit of a drive from the beach on a narrow road. But it was fine. Nothing to do up there, but to watch the view.

  • We loved visiting here back in May 2016. It was a bit rainy but we got lucky to have a moment of clear skies. We arrived on a scooter. Easy access, plenty of parking if no cruise ships. Nice stocked up affordable souvenir shop. The views from the top are just phenomenal! You can see the entire island. There is a very small fee. There restrooms available as well. Definitely a must when in Bermuda.
  • Awesome breathtaking views of Bermuda. Best souvenir prices in town at the souvenir shop at the base of the lighthouse. For a small fee you get to see the great views at the top of the lighthouse.
  • Great view and some souvenirs. parking is terrible when cruise ship docks but worth the ride and crowd.
  • Great views of the island from the top on the lighthouse.
  • Had a great anniversary dinner for our 20th! This was our second trip to Bermuda so we knew exactly where we wanted to celebrate and enjoy the out of this world experience!
