Gibb's Hill Lighthouse, Southampton Parish

4.6
One of the oldest cast iron lighthouses in the world, Gibb's Hill Lighthouse was built in 1844 by the British Army Royal Engineers. The 117 feet (35 m) tall lighthouse stands on top of Gibb's Hill and features a plaque and viewpoint that commemorates the visit of Queen Elizabeth II in 1953. Climb the 185 steps to the top of the lighthouse to be rewarded with a stunning panoramic view of the area. Visit the lighthouse tea room, in the restored cottage of the lighthouse keeper, for a meal at the foot of the tower.

  • Really fantastic spot for great view all round. You can reach this place either by renting a taxi or take a Bus . If you come by bus, you need to walk approximately 10 mins to reach the light house. Entry fare is around $2.5. You will have to climb like 4-5 floors to reach the top. The view and feel on the top is worth every bit.
  • If in Southampton, it is a neat way to spend a couple of hours. It is quite close to the Fairmont Southampton, and you can take a few different routes to get there. If you want to get to the top, there are quite a few stairs and the stairs near the top are a bit narrow. There are stunning views from the top, and it is only $2.50 for entrance to the lighthouse. There is also a little gift shop at the base.
