About This Activity

St Mary's Lighthouse is found on St Mary's Island, a tiny 'part time' island that may only be reached by a causeway that is short is included in tides twice each and every day. It's been a landmark on the coastline for many years, directing seafarers to security, and now it's a mini museum! Surrounded by a Nature Reserve, which is a mix of cliff top grassland, a beach, an certain part of rock pools, and newly developed wetland habitats, generally there is also an abundance of wildlife to watch out for. You may also see a seal! The lighthouse and Visitor centre have actually lots of displays that give an explanation for reputation for the lighthouse, and also provide information regarding the wildlife that is surrounding is found. You can rise the 137 steps towards the Lantern area into the tower, which offers dazzling views over the North East coast of England if you are feeling courageous. You may wish to use the real time video facility that allows you to definitely experience the same stunning panorama at ground level in the event that you(or some of the kids) are not brilliant with heights. Visitors wheelchairs that are utilizing buggies and prams, might wish to use the ramp through the causeway to the island, which supplies an easier approach. It is a idea that is great check out the tides timetable to avoid being stranded in the area when high tides cover the causeway!
