Withernsea Lighthouse Museum

Withernsea's Lighthouse is one of only a handful of lighthouses built inland, standing 127 feet (38m) high in the middle of the seaside town. This was to stop the frequent shipwrecks who hadn't spotted the lights at Spurn or Flamborough: dramatic enough to grab any kids' attention!
The base of the lighthouse features RNLI and HM Coastguard exhibits, displays and old photographs, so there's loads of educational scope here and the staff are more than happy to elaborate to interested types. There is also a local history room with photographs, documents and models from Withernsea's past including the Queen's Hotel and the train station.
The lighthouse is sadly no longer active but this means that visitors are able to climb the 144 steps to the top for the most breath taking views over Withernsea and East Yorkshire: on a clear day you can even see the towers of the Humber Bridge!
