HOW TO FIND US

The nearest sat’ nav’ postcode is PE12 9YT

From Kings Lynn. Take the A47 (A17) for about one and a half miles until you come to a roundabout go straight over onto the A17.  After about eight miles and immediately before Cross Keys Bridge, take the road on the right just before it. This is ‘East Bank’.

If you overshoot, go around the roundabout on the other side of the bridge and head back.

From the West. Approach along the A17 to the roundabout. Turn right over Cross Keys Bridge for King’s Lynn. Turn immediate left after the bridge into ‘East Bank’.

The postcode occurs after two and a half miles but continue on over the cattle grid for half a mile. Car parking is in the picnic area signed on the right before you reach the lighthouse.

These are narrow roads with no turning for caravans. Please use verges to pass.

Please note that other than by arrangement the lighthouse is only open in 2012 on weekends throughout August and the bank holiday Monday.
