For 175 years Nash Point lighthouse, designed by James Walker, the Engineer-in-Chief to Trinity House, has been keeping the mariner safe of Nash Sands, the sandbanks off the point at the entrance to the Bristol Channel. In 1977 a rare plant, the tuberous thistle (Cirsium Tuberosum), was found growing around the lighthouse. Nash Point was the last manned lighthouse in Wales. The lighthouse keepers left on 5 August 1998. Nash Point formally opened its doors to the public in 2007 so why not come along and see this wonderful lighthouse and the stunning scenery around about it from a new perspective? Fog Signal The fog signal is sounded at 14.00 On the first Saturday and third Sunday of each month, weather conditions permitting. Tours of Nash Point are organised under licence from the Corporation of Trinity House.

Pleasant to walk around and spend a few hours. You can sit and the rocky beach area or perhaps take a walk along the coast. We walked along to Monk Nash and then up through the woods to the appealing pub that is The Plough & Harrow. A thirsty quenching pint of special cider will do the trick. It cost... More

A walk well worth taking! Me and my girlfriend have done this walk a couple of times now as it takes no time at all and offers lots of places to stop along the route. Starting in the car park at Llantwit beach, join the coastal path just behind the shop and toilet blocks over the little stream. Most of... More

Breathtaking coastal views plus the cafe has just reopened where you can get a mug of tea for £1 and a bacon roll for £1:50. Bargain!

Didn't stop long enough to fully appreciate what a beautiful building this is. Headed towards it on a charity walk and we could see it in the distance for some time. Impressive building and magnificent close up. To hear the foghorn when we still a mile or so away was quite stirring too. Well worth a visit.

The main reason for my visit was the walk to the lighthouse from Llantwit Major. The walk was superb, the beaches and scenery was amazing and I'd love to have the opportunity to enjoy this walk again one day.

If you want to get married in a lighthouse look no further. Chris and Barbara will help you every (63) step. We got to experience the whole lighthouse all day and Chris fired up the foghorn. Wouldn't have been the same without them.

I cannot thank the lighthouse staff enough for their time and enthusiasm during our visit. Despite having visited many times as a child, I learnt a lot of new information about the history of the lighthouse and foghorn. Although it was quite a misty day, the view was still spectacular and it was just as fascinating to see the inside... More

Great place of interest with very friendly knowledgable staff telling the history of the lighthouse and surrounding area. Great views from the top on a clear day, and a beautiful cliff walk. An added bonus is hearing the foghorn, even though you will jump out of your skin it is so loud! Take the kids, your granny or just yourself... More

We live locally but have never visited before. It was very interesting and such a beautiful place. We thoroughly enjoyed going up the lighthouse and they blew the foghorn too. The staff were very helpful, polite, friendly and welcoming, we will definitely recommend this lighthouse. Well worth a visit.
