We took a trip to South Stack as our little one was doing the story of the lighthouse keeper in school and had been set some homework to find things out about a real lighthouse. So, no brainer really, in the car and to South Stack! We paid our entry fees in the RSPB building at the lower car park... More

I visited South Stack Lighthouse with my parents and a friend. Initially, we just planned to stay here briefly to get some photographs of the lighthouse from the mainland. However, it was such a lovely sunny day and some of us had never climbed to the top of a lighthouse before, so we decided to cross the bridge and pay... More

Went on a really windy day so possibly that kept the crowds down...it was an enjoyable visit and worth the money. Informative talk at the top of the lighthouse and fantastic views - made the number of steps worth it! Was a large climb back up, but lots of benches available so could take a break and look at those... More

Went on a day when the weather was not good, cloudy with no sun. Despite this we did see a Harbour Porpoise. The volunteer staff are extremely knowledgeable and the cafe served good cake! A good day was had by all.

Me and my husband had a great day visiting the south stack lighthouse, the place have some breath taking views, some beautiful birds, it is a very long walk but it worth it, at the lighthouse we had a great tour and it was brilliant I will definitely go back someday!

This place really left me with my mouth open, and not just because it was so windy I couldn't close it. The scenery is just magnificent. Numerous kinds of wild flowers growing everywhere, the cliffs, the sea, the lighthouse in the distance...just wow. We didn't go all the way to the lighthouse because it really, really was so windy you... More

Beautiful views. Also went to the hut circles just off car park which were fascinating. Not the fitest of couples but we managed the steps slowly .
