“...and it's FREE”
Reviewed 22 August 2014

Visited 20/08/14. Keith offers a comprehensive tour making it informative, entertaining and a great insight into the world of the lifeboat service. A bit of history, technology and daring encapsulated in about a hour. It's FREE but well worth a handsome donation.

“Fin and Jems ultimate experience”
Reviewed 22 July 2014

We all went to the lifeboat station which is top of Fin and Jems list. They both loved it, the experience was brilliant and really informative. Thank you so much to the asst mechanic who gave us a real insight into the workings of the boat. A great experience for all ages. Even our granddaughter who was not impressed by going there in the first place found it enjoyable. Both grandsons and our son would love to live here so they could all be part of this great service.

“Very interesting”
Reviewed 30 June 2014 via mobile

A very informative tour of both the inshore and severn class lifeboats. Patrick, our guide was really knowledgeable about everything. All for free too!

A bit off the beaten track but well worth making the effort to go!
