The Spurn Lightship guided ships safely through the treacherous River Humber for almost 50 years. Step aboard to discover how it was used as a navigational aid and find out what life was like on board.
An interpretation panel at the Marina explains its history and various parts for visitors when the ship is closed. Hull’s historic Spurn Lightship will temporarily move this September as part of a multi-million pound plan to improve a key route in and out of Hull. Unfortunately, while work is ongoing in preparation of its move, we will be unable to offer access to visitors this summer.
The Spurn Lightship will return with rejuvenated exhibitions and longer opening hours with improved accessibility and signage, allowing everyone to admire the splendor of the vessel, securing its long-term future.
