We took our Beaver Scout colony on a trip to Shoreham lifeboat station. The volunteers who took us on a tour were absolutely superb. They were so knowledgeable and patient with all sorts of questions. I would definitely recommend visiting.

Took up a great opportunity to visit Shoreham Lifeboat Station, which houses both an inshore and an offshore boat. The tour of the station and the boats may be given by both crew and shore staff, but both are knowledgeable and informative.
