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.

Operational life boat station.
May 2021 • Couples
We saw this whilst in the pier. It is located behind the theatre so easily missed! It is a real operational lifeboat centre so a good place visit and learn about the excellent work of the RNLI.

Interesting Visit
Aug 2020
Based at the end of Cromer Pier, is the 'new' Lifeboat station. You can walk around a gantry and look at the lifeboat (if it's in!) There are lifeboat men to answer your queries and a good little shop at the entrance.

If you can stand the noise, kids will love watching the tractors pulling the boats around, we lucky enough to see a few.

A Serious Lifeboat
Jan 2020
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.

Great search and rescue centre
Sep 2019 • Couples
I admire those men and women who work in often terrible conditions to rescue others at sea. They have a boat and launch system that Britain has refinded to unbelievable lebel of resource into these purpose built plus £1million boats.

A MUST VISIT location if you are on the pier
Feb 2020
If you are walking along the pier make sure you go all the way to the end to the lifeboat station. It is free to visit but there is a gift shop if you want to get some souvenirs.

You can climb up the stairs and see the lifeboat (assuming it is not out rescuing someone) and there is lots of information about the lifeboat and the crew.

I particularly enjoyed reading the information about all the callouts that the lifeboat has attended over the years. Very interesting.

Make sure you make a donation as the crew are all volunteers and need our support.
