“Absolute pleasure! Quirky lighting, great advice and customising options. The owner was patient, and he and his colleague were very friendly. New lighting, alongside great retro and vintage finds.”


“Went to the Turner, Margate followed by a stroll through the small streets and came across this gem of a shop, The Light Keeper. We only went it to browse, it seems most of Margate was there too! I ended up buying a pendant lamp and a specialist bulb. Reasonable prices, especially for the high end products in store, with a super display to give you inspiration for the home.....or business. A great experience, will be going back.”


“Such a great place! I have bought four lights from here and they’re all great. Staff extremely helpful. I’ll definitely be going back”
