An iconic destination, with stunning cliff scenery, and the chance to see whales, dolphins, and basking sharks. Neist Point Lighthouse was designed by David Alan Steventson and built in 1909. The complex design consists of white painted, flat-roofed keepers' houses, and a 19 meter high tower, first lit on the 1st of November 1909 which is still fully operational.
Visitors can enjoy a nice walk from the carpark, where they can take in the stunning views of the surrounding cliffs. The walk follows a path right up to the lighthouse, where even more spectacular views can be enjoyed. It's a great place for 'Instagrammers', with many photo opportunities to be had.
