We took in a visit top the RNLI visitor centre which we really enjoyed, without this lifeboat facility many lives would be lost at sea - we can recommend a visit and a donation to the RNLI.

The volunteers welcomed my family, offering the children a chance to put on life jackets and climb into a real lifeboat (be it in the shop and not on the water!) Worth a visit.

Nice little museum. Lady in there told us about what they do here in Dartmouth. Good video of them rescuing a dog which had fallen off the cliff. Highly recommended visit.

Information about the work and bravery of RNLI, this is interesting but the winner for the grandsons was the old inshore lifeboat they could climb in and the bright yellow waterproofs and helmets they could dress up in. Had to prise them away!
