Ledge Light has been transformed over the past five years. It has gone from an empty building with peeling paint and rubbish to a world class historic site. The building and its spectacular location are so very unique and as an added bonus, there's an Interpretive Center filled with historical information about this local treasure. You'll find almost every room... More

This New London history at it's best. If you can see one thing historical this should be it. It can be seen from the city of Groton and New London, and you can get a good look at it if you use the Long Island Ferry.

Whilst the light house has occasional tours, it is always visible leaving the Thames River by boat to Long Island or Fishers Island or just out for a sail. Restored and beautiful entrance to the 19th Century whaling village (now city of) New London

This is the iconic light house of New London. Stories say it is haunted (aren't all lighthouses?) but it is beautiful to sit at our beach and see it out there as well as pass by on our way to Block Island!

The Light House could use some repair and a few coats of paint, but is historically significant to the area. Get there via UCONN Avery Point's Project O.

When we tried to find how to get to the light house, on a Tuesday, we found out the boat on worked Thursday - Saturday, so make plans a head of time to visit.

A short boat trip out from Avery Point in Groton with Project O and you can roam around this fabulous historic building. My husband and I are thrilled with the changes that have been made to Ledge Lighthouse. They now have an Interpretive Center that includes many rooms with exhibit panels and photographs, a theater that plays the documentary "Ledge... More

My family of 4 took a boat trip to New London Ledge Light. It was absolutely amazing. Filled with history, folklore and even some ghost stories. I highly recommend this trip to anyone who will be in the New London/Groton area. If you are a local and have never made the trip, it is a MUST DO!!!! The boat tours... More
