Souter Lighthouse

Souter Lighthouse
Souter Lighthouse stands majestically on the rugged coastline between the rivers Tyne and Wear. As the world's first reliable electrically-powered lighthouse, it has warned ships of the treacherous rocks for over 100 years. The brand new interpretation room covers the topics of communication, weather, pirates and shipwrecks in a friendly and interactive environment. An ideal base for rockpool rambles.
