I love going to Lighthouses. There are some fantastic views from the top of Smeaton's Tower. (Was also a Bride and Groom having some wedding photos taken up there when I was there). Great location.

Well worth the climb up for the amazing views alone but the history inside and chance to see what living inside a lighthouse was like is also interesting. Most of the climb is up ladders, not stairs. Stunning view of the city and ocean from...More
