This is one of the best lifeboat stations to visit. It has a great shop, viewing area and the volunteers were really helpful and passionate about the RNLI. Lots of information with lots of history and pictures.

Dropped in for a look around while my wife was on a course at the Stade, the volunteers were really helpful and informative. One even took me behind the scenes to show me the boat close up to answer some questions. Highly recommended.

I think they are invaluable, with the work they do. More money should be given to them. On the other hand less people being stupid and getting into difficulties would help.

Every RNLI station is worth a visit and a donation, they provide a life saving service, and need all the help they can get to keep running

Always like to support RNLB. Fun to pop in and show children the boat. There was a few activities for them including dressing up clothes. Didn't get chance to look round shop as daughter needed toilet and they don't have one
