Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse reviews
The lighthouse park was closed but we drove to another park where we were able to see it as well as the other lighthouse in the middle of the water. Beautiful landscape. more »
Beautiful lighthouse even at a distance..... COVID has tours shut down. Go to the Great Island Common for good views. more »
We were able to get married at this majestic landmark! My wife and I reached out to the the amazingly accommodating non-profit organization Friend of the Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse. They were very helpful and made our event planning super easy. On our day, Cynthia helped usher guest to the unique setting and worked to make the event go off without a concern. Fantastic space for a wedding, and truly remarkable photographs for a lifetime to cherish. Thanks again, Friends of the Portsmouth Harbor Lighthouse non-profit organization!
Closed at 4 pm on a weekday. We drove a long way to see it and were disappointed we could not at least walk up to it. You can see it from an alcove further down the shore about a 1/4 mile away. We drove back the next morning at 10:30 and the gate was still locked. The sign says it is open from 8 am until 4 pm. We called a number listed for the Lighthouse and heard a recorded message about it being open in the afternoon. The polite coastguard officer told us it varies but that we could not get past the gate without a tour guide. My advice:. Call before you make the trip and talk to a live person.
