The lifeboat museum is now closed but we cycled a little further along the promenade and went to visit the RNLI Lifeboat station. A very interesting place with lots of photographs and statistics. Keep up the good work all that are involved.

This lovely museum closed it's doors early in 2016. No longer open to the public. There is a new lifeboat station further down the promenade however, which does allow public to look at their new lifeboat.

Being close up to the lifeboat and watching the videos of the lifeboat in action makes you realise the amazing work the RNLI do
