What a treat tucked in the inlet at Anglesea! This historic lighthouse still guides seagoing vessels as it did in 1874. The tour consists of a great fact filled video and an overview of the house itself by a lighthouse tour guide. The rest of the tour is self guided, but there is a printed guide to explain all the...

This is a nice place to wander while walking the wall. I love to wander around the gardens. They do an great job keeping it natural, with native plants.

Very nice tour, very nice tour director. Very informative and excellent view of the waterway. The fee was gladly paid which goes to restoration of this house as they are doing an excellent job.

This lighthouse was not that big of a deal. I was shocked to find out they wanted $4.00 per person to walk up the stairs and see the light.

Hubby and I visited in August. The grounds were delightfully and fully gardened( free). It was like " honey I shrunk Longwood Gardens" and took it to the beach. A very different respite. Nice pathways and secluded seating throughout. LIke no lighthouse we've ever seen before. The inner tour is an historical treasure trove( small fee). A must do for... More

While staying in North Wildwood, NJ, I walked to the Lighthouse after my morning walk on the beach to watch the sunrise. There is a nice cement walkway along the inlet that leads to the Lighthouse. I had visited over 10 years ago with my family and wanted to go back. It was early 7am and even though the Lighthouse... More

I have visited a few lighthouses but this one is my favorite. I suggest walking through the gardens and the seawall. The views are breathtaking!

It was closed when we were there but we strolled through the garden which was lovely even in the almost dark.

I was recently there in late August. It seemed like everything was in bloom! The scents and blooms were gorgeous. The gardens were delightful and the path led up to the sea wall and beautiful view of the inlet. In all my times in Wildwood, I was never at this place. Shame on me! Then I walked into the lighthouse... More

Tour the lighthouse and walk through the gardens on the way to the sea wall. Grab a bench and just relax. Go 1 block west and grab a bite at Northend Rest. Then return to see the lights and the sea wall at dusk. The lighthouse is just beautiful for the Holidays.
