The Lighthouse, Llandudno

The Lighthouse
WOW! Is it a lighthouse or a Fortress?
Take a double look at this place. Its a castle - its a fortress, it's a lighthouse. Its all of those things and it also has amazing views. I really cant tell you how much I love this place. It makes me feel very proud of our heritage. There are some magnificent places to admire on this site and this is well up there, at the top. ANOTHER featured property Mr Q! Sorry. This web site is TOO GOOD! :)

Profile Description

The Lighthouse was constructed in 1862 by the Mersey Docks and Harbour Company who, with great attention to detail, built a fortress like building using dressed limestone and vast bulks of Canadian pitch pine.

The beacon remained a continuous warning to mariners until March 22nd 1985 when the optic was removed. It can now be viewed at the Visitor Centre on the summit of the Great Orme.

On entering the Lighthouse you are immediately impressed by one of the most interesting rooms, the Keeper’s Hall. This has a unique 6m (19ft) pitch pine panelling and gallery, built merely to allow privacy between the two keepers and their families. Breakfast is taken in the North facing Victorian dining room, which allows guests to look down over a 100m (360ft) vertical drop whilst enjoying the traditional Welsh breakfast for which the Lighthouse is widely renowned.
