Gibb's Hill Lighthouse, Southampton Parish

4.6
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 lighthouse made of assembled cast iron plates in the middle of the XIXth century is of interest by itself. The view from the top is stunning  more »

    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.
