The Old Lighthouse, Romney Marsh

Local tourist attraction in Dungeness, Kent

After three years of planning and construction, the Old Lighthouse was established in 1904 and has become a historic tourist attraction, surviving both World Wars. It was originally designed to provide light to a variety of vessels as they navigated across the uncertain English Channel, but after being decommissioned in 1960, the Dungeness Lighthouse has become a popular visitor destination. Whether you’re a history buff or a big fan of beautiful panoramic views, the Old Lighthouse is the perfect spot for a variety of visitors and is very family friendly. Thanks to its educational value and historic elements, the Old Lighthouse is a wonderful local attraction and is ideal for a family day out.
