You must climb to the top as the views are awesome. Very reasonable to get in - certainly by Bermuda standards (equivalent of buying 2 apples from the supermarket). Quite informative information inside the lighthouse as well.

Yes you walked up like 188 steps...but when you got to the top you can see the whole island...yes I say it was worth it! There are like 6 landings where you can stop and take a break along the way up or down. it cost 2.50 each.

The view was really spectacular, worth the $2.50 cost to climb to the top. You can see the entire island and the history of the lighthouse is quite interesting.

We took the bus from Hamilton and ended at the street BELOW the lighthouse. It is about a mile or so to walk uphill and then there are a ton of steps to get to the gift shop to purchase tickets. I MISUNDERSTOOD what the man said.. 85 steps up. Nope I didn't read the sign either until I came... More

It was the most amazing view! It was a little scary (I do not like heights), but so worth it! It was so beautiful. If you have never been to Bermuda this is a must do.

Every day I was in Bermuda, I took a walk up to this lighthouse. I recommend exploring the different ways to get there. Bring money so you can go to the top. There are 360 degree views of the entire area.

Energetic tight climb so wear good shoes. Take the bus as it drops you off within a ten minute walk, uphill!

This is well worth the stop. There are 182 steps to climb but it comes in levels so you can rest in between. Facts on the lighthouse are posted on each landing which are interesting. The view at the top is incredible. However you must crawl out an opening which can be a bit of a challenge. There is a... More

I climbed to the top of the lighthouse with my son-in-law who is considerably younger and fitter than me... It took me slightly longer than him!! When we got to the top, and attempted to open the door, a howling sound filled the inside of the building!! The wind was so strong that my companion sat outside and took photos... More
