The small museum has a display of local lifeboating history with many interactive displays that will keep youngsters amused. Entry is free and would be ideal to visit on a day when the weather was not too good!

I'm not sure what to call this place. Lifeboat station? Museum? Art Gallery? Record of real life heroes? In truth, it is a lifeboat station first, and everything else as well. You'll walk in through the doors, and immediately see records going back decades of...More
