We didn't catch the name of our guide, but he was great. There was a couple with young kids in our small group, and he was really good with them. He looked like he was really enjoying himself, and was very knowledgeable. The trip to the top is not that hard, and the view is splendid.

The children loved the tour of the lighthouse, however the stairs were a lot for me and would be for anyone with a bad back or mobility problems I am guessing. On a clear day, like the day we visited you could see for miles and we got some amazing pics from the top. The tour was conducted in French... More

Good attraction behind The Westminster hotel. Summer opening times vary, not open Mondays rest week tours at 2, 3,4,5 pm. 274 steps good going up, felt dizzy coming down. Great photos in museum of Le Touquet when it wasnt even a resort, c 1911. cheap attraction and something different, who would have expected a lighthouse inland!

the office of tourism told us it was open on saturday 4th of July with hourly guides from 2 to 5 pm.however, the attraction was closed and in the door states open from 6th July. only guided tours available...apparently they do not let anyone climb 274 stairs on their own.

The lighthouse is located in the town itself and is easily accessed, it has an unusual design but is a working lighthouse serving the coastline, make the effort when you have seen everything else

We made the effort to go and see it but we should have checked first, it was closed and strangely enough it seemed a long way from the water, I'm sure the views are great but can't be sure

Great way to see the whole area in panorama. Not expensive. Simple but really informative content for an afternoon in Le Touquet.
