rnli historic LIFEBOAT COLLECTION
UK’S LARGEST COLLECTION OF HISTORIC LIFEBOATS
The UK’s largest collection of historic lifeboats, which together have saved hundreds of lives off the coasts of the United Kingdom and Republic of Ireland.
From an 1897 pulling and sailing lifeboat, to the familiar Arun class and Blue Peter inflatable inshore vessels, visitors can explore how lifeboats have changed over the last century through interactive displays, archive film and audio clips.
We have worked with AccessAble to create individual access guides to our galleries and spaces. These guides give you the detailed information you need to work out if a space is going to be accessible to you.
