As the Trinity House lighthouse keeper, George is the only skipper who can take you on a guided tour inside Grace Darling’s Lighthouse and indeed the only skipper licensed to land on the island of Longstone itself. Landing on Longstone is free but a small charge is made to tour the lighthouse which is given to charity.
The lighthouse has toilets and a visitor centre and you can visit Grace’s bedroom and look out of the window where she saw the wreck of the Forfarshire.The top of the lighthouse has a viewing platform which gives you incredible views of the islands and Northumberland coastline.
Dogs are welcome to land on the island but must be kept on a lead at all times. Sadly they are not allowed inside the lighthouse.
