Breath-taking views FROM Corbiere Lighthouse

NOTE: To undertake this tour you need to be fit and well as you will need to climb over rocks. 

For safety reasons this is for over 12’s only. Tide dependent unless you want to swim!

Meet the Ports of Jersey Harbourmaster and Master Mariner, Captain Bill Sadler, at the bottom of the causeway and he will drive you across to the iconic Corbiere Lighthouse. Climb to the top of the Gallery for those incredible views - in Bill’s own words, despite regular visits “every time it still takes my breath away”.

Bill has experience of many lighthouses during his long years working at “Trinity House”, who maintain over 60 lighthouses around England, Wales, the Channel Islands and Gibraltar. He believes Corbiere Lighthouse to be a very special lighthouse due to its completely unaltered state - original brass work is still all in place and lovingly polished! Once outside the lighthouse there are various bunkers and the air compression room for the fog horn to view.

See for yourself how special Corbiere Lighthouse and those amazing views are with this exclusive Harbourmaster’s guided tour, duration approx. 1 hour.

Valid until 31 August 2018
