We visited the museum which is FREE and You get a sense straight away what it must have been like to work the boat many years ago without modern technology.Many things to read and look at well worth a look.Not suitable for wheelchairs.

No admission charges but donations obviously accepted! Old life boat house with an old life boat (how did they do it in those days?) and nice period items of equipment. Easy walk form the Quay area right next to the main Harbour. Small sovininer shop and nice volunteer staff.

Well worth visiting at the end of the quay, staffed by a knowledgable volunteer. We stocked up on Christmas cards!

Went after crab fishing on the quay side. Nice volunteer on duty who was very knowledgable. Will always support/visit RNLI museums and displays.

Husband is a member of the RNLI so it was a given we'd visit here.
Really interesting newspaper stories, plus stories of various adventures by the lifeboat crews. A lifeboat in the middle plus lifejackets from the old days (so heavy, imagine wearing one!) and lots of interesting information. Amazing to see how many lifeboat stations in the UK.
