Group Visits, free entry


Built in 1927, the 'Spurn' served for almost 50 years as a navigational aid in the treacherous River Humber.

Now enjoying a leisurely mooring in Hull's attractive Marina, she and her knowledgeable 'crew' are prepared to receive and welcome boarders who wish to explore. See how the crew lived and worked and learn more about her valuable role and the work of the Humber Conservancy Board.

The Spurn Lightship will not open in 2018
Hull’s historic Spurn Lightship will temporarily move this September as part of a multi-million pound plan to improve a key route in and out of Hull. Unfortunately, while work is ongoing in preparation of its move, we will be unable to offer access to visitors this summer.
The Spurn Lightship will return with rejuvenated exhibitions and longer opening hours with improved accessibility and signage, allowing everyone to admire the splendour of the vessel, securing its long-term future.
