Went here ever year when my Gran lived in Sheringham and was a volunteer at the station shop. Going back was a pleasure and the person in the shop was great with the kids. Lovely walk along the sea front to get the station.

I'v been visiting Sheringham Lifeboat station for 58 years now, love the place & its people. One thing has always stayed the same, friendly people. The current lifeboat station was built in 1936 altho modifications have taken place it still remains its character nicely.

We wanted to visit whilst in Sheringham and were not disappointed. A friendly welcome, with a small, but well stocked gift shop with the station home to the Atlantic 85.
