I'd taken lots of pictures of Smeaton's Tower or 'The Lighthouse' over my stay and decided I wanted to go up it. I was a little surprised there was a £2 entry fee to climb up the steps to look out. Essentially you're just paying to look through a window, I know the money must go towards keeping the tower all nice. But I think maybe just a Donation box would be better? So people can choose how much they want to pay. Or maybe place a little cafe nearby where the funds go towards the upkeep of Smeaton's Tower.
Nonetheless, this lighthouse is pretty to look at and is perfectly situated on The Hoe.
