Although quite small the information inside was really good and you get a great view and understanding of the lifeboat, well worth a visit at the end of the Pier

Whenever I visit the coast the bravery of lifeboat crew never ceases to amaze me - whatever the weather they are prepared to risk their lives for others. Always make a contribution to this donation funded body - one day you may need them.
