(4.4/5 based on 140+ reviews on the web)
Dungeness Lighthouse on the Dungeness Headland started operation on 20 November 1961 and is constructed of precast concrete rings. Its pattern of black and white bands is impregnated into the concrete. It remains in use today, monitored and controlled from the Trinity House Operations and Planning Centre at Harwich, Essex.Dungeness Lighthouse is the fifth lighthouse at Dungeness. Construction of the Dungeness nuclear power station obscured the light of the 1904 lighthouse and necessitated yet another lighthouse.

  • Old lighthouse dungerness. Amazing very pleased. Can spend hours at the lighthouse. You can see for miles when at the top of the lighthouse. 
  • I visited here on Sunday with my family, very windy, lovely views from the top of the lighthouse, even managed to climb all 169 steps it is lovely and used to hold here often when I was a child 
  • We've been before and I'm sure we'll go again. The view from the top is amazing and for only £12 a family ticket is good value for money.

  • Really enjoyable experience being able to walk all the way to the top and out onto the viewing deck through the little side door. Would recommend to anyone to do. It may make your stomach churn if you look down the narrow winding stairs but you have to do it! It's a chance of a lifetime kind of thing!
  • Love this place, it is like a film set all around the beach with lots of ship wreaks. The 2 light houses and the gardens.
  • This place has a weird attraction, it feels a little like a ghost town yet brimming with a summery feel....
  • Love it
  • Me and my 6 year old cousin went up there once, it was amazing. You can see far out, the sea and mini rail way. Maybe about 300 stairs but it was worth it !
