South Foreland Lighthouse

This distinctive landmark was built in 1843 high over the White Cliffs. The lighthouse was used by Marconi just over 100 years ago for early radio experiments. From here Marconi made the worlds first ship to shore and subsequently the first international radio transmission. The tour takes about thirty minutes and you will learn the history of the lighthouse and everyone who has been associated with it. A good idea is to combine this with a visit to the nearby Gateway to the White Cliffs.
