Lovely area
Sep 2021
Lovely area to visit, the outside of the lighthouse is stunning.
The website stated opening times, when we arrived, it was closed, very frustrating as a week's visit to the area we had planned our trips for the week, and we couldn't come back. I know staffing and volunteers are not always easy, but judging by a previous review, we are not the only ones to have experienced this.
There are other things to see, some lovely walks, and the stony beach led down to the sea,

Unlikely to be open it would seem
Sep 2021 • Family
Don’t for a second believe the info on here or in the website regarding opening times and cal before you visit (although that’s a waste too as they don’t answer the phone). We drove down to let the kids see the lighthouse on Thursday at 11am when they should be open but they weren’t. Totally appreciate this is likely to be staffed by volunteers but surely they can update the website or put a sign up? Anyway what a waste of a morning,

Lovely customer service
Aug 2021 • Family
Arrived to find an awful, rude family being abusive & aggressive to the lady who works here. She was shaken but still very lovely and polite. Great experience inside and fantastic view. Worth a trip. Ignore any bad reviews by said family, no way to treat an older lady you should be ashamed of yourselves.

Thank you so much for your support. Poor Kim was very shaken. It’s so hard to find staff and they should not have to put up with such disgraceful behaviour. I am waiting for their attempt at complaint! My response will not look good for them.

Short and sweet visit, but interesting
Aug 2021 • Family
Not many lighthouses are open to the public, so it was great to be able to visit. We stopped on each floor to read the exhibits, but they did all look a little 'tired'. Amazing views from the top, looking out over the incredible Dungeness landscape. £15 for a family ticket.

Old Lighthouse

A lovely old Lighthouse that must have some good views from the top. Looking foward to visit when it's open again and climb up.

Thank you for your kind review. We look forward to seeing you when we can open again. We love the quiet and unspoilt nature in Dungeness. Have to think of the power station as “Industrial Heritage”!

A striking feature on this unique coastline
Sep 2020 • Couples
Although the lighthouse is currently closed to visitors, it is well worth seeing, and with its decidedly different black paint, it really stands out against the colours of the sea, sky and shingle beach.

The only blot on the landscape is the adjoining power station - but there’s nothing we can do about that!

Thank you for your review. The power station now has to be thought of as “industrial heritage” possibly. It doesn’t stop Dungeness being a beautiful largely unspoilt and quiet area. Look forward to seeing you when we are open.

The old light house is situated beside the RHDR station. Whilst it is closed there are some nice walks out to the beach nearby + Britannia Inn if you want a pint

Breathtaking widows walk, all of it a must see.
Jul 2019 • Family
I thought it would be was just something to do after getting off the train, and something to tick off, on a bucket list. But I truly underestimated how I would love this place. I went with husband three year old and two stroppy teams. That at first would not go in.The staff were amazing and very helpful with all my day trip stuff. They were patient with the teens and very polite. My three year old loved it and would not come down after going up, we got him down by getting him to bring his sister's in. He wanted them to come too. So down we went and after much persuasion the fourteen and twelve year old came in. They loved it and soon forgot why they didn't want to come, as they claimed the stairs up and up. There are several levels so if you have an issue with hights you don't have to go straight to the top. You also don't feel you are up that high, for most of it untill the ladder steps, there is most of the building before this point. The lantern room is beautiful. My newly joined up, twelve year old sea cadet didn't want to go. She took pictures of everything. For me the widow's walk was my favourite bit, it was literally breathtaking. The breeze hit you, and you instantly got resect for the people that would have worked there, on those God forsaken night/ days of lashing storms. You truly realize how important that job was, to work this life saving house. All this at a very cheap price too

Thank you for your lovely review. Typical teens I remember from how my own were. On a clear day u can see along to Pevensey, Dover, France and across the Marsh. Hoping your family can come again after the lockdown is lifted. Best wishes to you and your family

Great views, brilliantly kept traditional lighthouse
Mar 2020 • Couples
Great example of a traditional 1900s light house. Beautifully kept. Soak up the atmosphere of what it would have been like for a lighthouse keeper at the time. The staff are warm, friendly and very knowledgeable about the lighthouse.

Hi. Thank you for your lovely review. I’m glad you could come and see us as now it is lockdown for us and everywhere else. We will be open for the summer holidays I’m sure but have to wait and see the progress of the virus. Best wishes
