Hereford Inlet Lighthouse is a working lighthouse as well as a museum. It is 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 over 200 plant varieties. The Hereford Inlet Lighthouse 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.

The garden and grounds around the Lighthouse are wheelchair accessible. A DVD 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. Special rates are available for groups of 30 or more.
