Details

Withernsea’s Lighthouse is one of only a handful of lighthouses built inland, standing 127 feet (38m) high in the middle of the seaside town. It closed in 1976 after 82 years service and now serves as a memorial to local girl Kay Kendal 1950s famous film star, and includes a video film of excerpts from well-known films and memorabilia. Local history brings Withernsea's past alive, includes ship wrecks, RNLI lifeboats and the HM Coastguard. Visual aid and monitor for anyone not wishing to climb to the top. Telescope in the lamproom improving views. Cafe with light refreshments and souvenirs on sale. Large landscaped garden with outdoor seating and a delightful garden trail for children to enjoy.

The Withernsea Lighthouse is part of the Lighthouse Trail which starts at Spurn Point and ends in Flamborough Headland. When the lighthouse at Withernsea was built there were only sand dunes and a mere in front of it. The houses you see today were all built after the promenade was extended along the sea front.
