One of the oldest lighthouses - and more like a house than the typical high beacon. On the ground floor there is a small shop with goodies. Above you can climb to the second floor and up to the light - it is steep. There are self-guided pieces to check out. Outside the light are a number of plaques with... More

This is a wonderful place to take pics or just enjoy the history of the area. Beatiful views of the bay but the lighthouse in itself is very stunning

This park hosts a quaint, well maintained little lighthouse with accompanying explanatory placque. Looking out over Liverpool Harbor, it provides a scenic view of the geographical asset that led to Liverpool's founding and development. If you are in Liverpool, it is worth a few minutes to check it out. There is adequate parking and a few benches if you choose... More

Nice view.. A no. of boards placed all around with description of the lighthouse, the history of ship building and trade in liverpool and working of the lighthouse. Some old Canons alo on display. Some picnic tables under trees make it a good picnic spot on a nice sunny day.

Drove to this Light house and was very disappointed. It was very small and you could not go into it to view it . I will not go back to view it .Go to Peggys Cove to see a real light house..Stay away from this one.

A visit to Fort Point lighthouse takes up a pleasant half hour; it works well as an end-point for a walk from the centre of the town. It's free, the stairs inside are steep and there's a good view from the top. Best of all, you can give someone a scare by sounding the hand-held foghorn when they're not expecting... More

Fort Point Lighthouse is still a must see when visiting Liverpool. However, gone is the great array of local arts and crafts, a great loss. When I took visitors there in July they bought one loaf of bread and one pot of jam which came to well over $20, far too much, though I am sure it was very good.

We ended up here during an overnight stay in Liverpool, because pretty much everything else was closed at 5pm. Free admission, sweet girl staffing it with good tips about the area, and local map. The climb up to the light is steep but worth it for the view. Although someone should take the time to clean off the spiders from... More

Located in a beautiful setting next to the ocean and learned a lot about the life of a Lighthouse Keeper.
