  • A great place to go when there's a S or SW storm blowing to fully experience nature at its wildest. Take great care though!
  • Fabulous tour of the the lighthouse for £5.00 Lovely hours tour from the knowledgeable and amusing Hugh . Beautiful location watching seals from 200 metres away!
  • Really good sightseeing on the way to go go the lighthouse, but once there you can't go neerer than shown on the picture (exept if it is a visit day). Also, please note that you will need to drive through a really narrow road and that the parking costs 3.50£
  • Just spectacular place. Amazing views and well organized. Go down to the beach to see the seals
  • Stunning scenery seal spotting is a must. Stop off at the small bay on the circular walk before climbing back up.

Where to stay in Kingsbridge

Family-run bed and breakfasts are perhaps the most popular places to stay in town, with their quaint bedrooms possessing the charm and character most visitors consider particularly "British." Some of these occupy family homes, while others utilize repurposed buildings, such as the town's old school house. Look along the roads leading out of town for traditional pubs with upstairs rooms for rent.
