The Happisburgh Lighthouse

There are endless beautiful places to visit in Norfolk, from unspoilt coastlines, breath-taking nature reserves to idyllic seaside towns and medieval cities. Norfolk has something for everybody. If you're looking for somewhere to explore, you will not be disappointed when you visit the beautiful county of Norfolk.

The Norfolk coast features an incredible array of iconic lighthouses, many of which can be seen for miles along the coast that provide an unforgettable view. It's a great feeling to live in Norfolk, where you are surrounded by such a beautiful landscape with every turn. Our exploring adventures led us to discover the quaint little village of Happisburgh and the lighthouse.

Happisburgh Lighthouse is one of the most iconic sights in Norfolk and one of the most recognised lighthouses in the whole of the country. Located in the coastal village of Happisburgh, on the north-east coast of Norfolk, it is commonly mis-pronounced, the correct pronunciation being "Haze-bruh".

As well as being the most recognised, it’s also the oldest working lighthouse in East Anglia and, as you’ll see in the history of the lighthouse, it’s also the only independently operated lighthouse in the country. It was a lovely afternoon exploring the fields that led up to the lighthouse. We wanted to go inside the lighthouse, but all tickets were already pre-booked, so they were unable to accommodate us this time. But we will try to visit them again on their next open day

Happisburgh Lighthouse can be visited on occasional Sundays and Bank Holidays during the summer months. Adults are £5; children 16 and under £1. Children under 1 metre in height are not able to climb the 112 steps to the lantern unfortunately, due to safety reasons.
