In partnership with the RNLI Heritage Trust

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.

Get onboard!

“We have visited lots of times but the new RNLI section is brilliant”
