Fascinating time line of the Tenby Lifeboat and all the brave and dedicated volunteers who have manned them over the years. Great stories, and you get to see this amazing Tamar class lifeboat up close. Gift shop onsite to help support.

A small walk along the prom and you get to this massive life boat station. You get to walk around the boat on what i would call a viewing gallery and see how and why the lifeboats are so successful. Very interesting and educational.
