The tour guide Jason was excellent. Nice day out for all ages. Best on a sunny day when you can see the surroundings clearly.

From arriving at the Lighthouse, we were met at the ticket desk who had our tickets ready and all staff were so friendly. The guide then took the tour of the light house. He was so knowledgeable, kind, very helpful and really happy to explain the full story and more about the area and what we looked out from the Lighthouse.

The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable! You could tell he cared about the subject matter and definitely researched the lighthouse and the history of it. It was an absolutely enjoyable experience. The views from the viewing platform were indescribable. Definitely worth the visit and the tour.

I love lighthouses and try to visit any when I can. The visit to Hook was excellent! We were able walk right round the grounds, ad then the tour inside the lighthouse was really interesting the guide was really enthusiastic, knowledgeable and has inspired us to research of our own. Also had some lovely soup in the cafe with a great sea view. It was a great day out.

Delighted to finally visit Hook Lighthouse with my two young boys. We had an excellent tour guide in Jon, who gave us the history of the lighthouse, in both a factual and humourous way. The tour lasted 45 minutes and we were delighted that after climbing 115 steps we got to step outside and view the stunning countryside. Visited on World Lighthouse Day which also saw the Official Opening of the Save Our Seas Eco Educational Centre.
