The lifeboat station is at the end of the pier. It is a good place to show the children what life boats are and how important they are for the community.

My husband and I popped in to get out of the cold, but was pleasantly surprised by the information there and the Lifeboat that was prepped ready. Obviously couldn’t leave without a tea towel or two.

The boat is interesting to look at although unable to go on majority of days of the year. Some interesting information about the station past and present and its workers on display. Free so can't complain but not likely to spend more than 10-15mins there...More
