Hereford Inlet Lighthouse is a working lighthouse as well as a museum that's open to the public for guided and self-guided tours. Visitors will learn about the history of Hereford and get a glimpse of the life of a lighthouse keeper in the late 19th and early 20th century. A park surrounding the lighthouse is designed with many different garden areas containing more than 200 plant varieties. The gardens are planted in the Victorian cottage style and extend right up to the ocean seawall. They have won several awards, including the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society Suburban Greening Award. Visit the gift shop featuring lighthouse and nautical theme art work, books, miniatures, shirts, hats, mugs and much more. The garden and grounds around the Lighthouse are wheelchair accessible. A photo album tour is available, upon request, to those unable to climb the lighthouse. We welcome and can accommodate school trips, senior citizen groups and all other tour buses. Donations are accepted. Hereford Inlet Lighthouse is open year round.
