The life boat station is well worth a visit, what a fantastic job each and every volunteer does. What an interesting insight into what is involved within this establishment. Lovely shop and very interesting history of past rescues and crew.

This history of the Tenby lifeboat was very interesting and the new lifeboat is impressive. The lifeboat volunteers are amazing and seeing the same family names appearing in the roll call over the generations really makes you think.

Been to several in different places, and are fans of the RNLI, so not sure what to say really. Larger than many, clean, newish, good displays

Well worth a visit. It’s packed with heaps of information about past revues and the specifications of the old and new lifeboat.
