“where to get married in Lewes! .”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Same sex marriage, that is, a really lovely spot in a VERY welcoming state. The park Is lovely, the flowers, hedges of red hibiscus lining the pathways, the lightship beautiful in its pristine red and white.

Our same sex wedding was held in a perfect, NON prissy place, perfect for two men.

Nice place and beautiful area to walk around and take an evening stroll. My husband and son enjoy the ship and the girls putzed around taking pictures.

“Interetsing bit of history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

This well-rebuilt ship shows an interesting bit of the history of the lightships. It is next to well preserved life-saving station that also adds to the glimpse of an earlier time. This is well worth a visit.

The days of Lightships along the coast lives on in Lightship Overfalls. It was really interesting to see what life of a lightship was like. Great maintenance and restoration.

“worth a visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

had a good tour of the lightship. Learned a lot about the history of these ships. Guide was knowledgable and obviously enthusiastic about his job. Engine room isn't available to tour, but you get to see the top deck, officer and crew quarters as well as the galley.
