About
This is an active RNLI lifeboat station that is free to visit, but open to the public and donations can be made. From the large viewing gallery you can see a Tamar class lifeboat close too, unfortunately unless it is an open day (about 2 a year) or lifeboat day (22nd July 2018) you cannot get onboard. In the next few months we hope to improve the facilities and offer visitors an insight of the boat via pictures and videos.

This is a little museum of the RNLI.

Admittance is free and you can make a donation on entering if you wish.

The high standard and pride that goes into the upkeep of this machine will make you proud to be British! Definitely worth taking a stroll to the end of the pier for a look and a read.

Many thanks to the crew that operate and support the lifeboat. If you are interested in the maritime world or just want to take a look, the viewing platform in the lifeboat station offers the opportunity for an overview of the craft which is very clean and obviously well maintained. The UK should be proud of the RNLI and its lifeboat service.

This is a free attraction which is well worth a visit. There is lots of interesting information inside about the history of the station and the RNLI. There is also the lifeboat which you can get close to and have a good look around.
Well worth a visit and donation.

Just entering the lifeboat station made the hairs on my arms stand up, reading the history of the station and of the many rescue missions kept the excitement high. But the inspection of the boat and the boats equipment was for me, the highlight. As an engineer I was so impressed with the fit and finish of the entire boat and if only I could have witnessed it's launch down the so steep ramp into a broiling sea it would have made my day. Sadly this was not to happen so I just had to stand and imagine the entire action. The whole would is in awe of these brave people who carry out these rescues, not just on sunny summer days but also on stormy dark winter nights. Well done and carry on the wondrous work.

Really interesting little working lifeboat with an impressive history. Highly recommend combining this with the Henry blogg RNLI museum just up the beach.

This museum at the end of the pier is full of interesting information as well as housing the lifeboat itself. I loved the stained glass windows. The interactive displays were great and there's a shop downstairs for souvenirs. Well worth a visit.
