A charming and distinctive historic landmark with unrivalled views of the channel and the White Cliffs of Dover - South Foreland Lighthouse has a fascinating tale to tell: a beacon of safety guiding ships past the infamous Goodwin Sands; the first lighthouse powered by electricity and the site of the first international radio transmission.

Discover the lost Victorian world of life in a lighthouse, enjoy breathtaking views of the English Channel or just relax and enjoy tea and cake in Mrs Knott’s tearoom.
