Visit a lifeboat station

Come visit us

For a free, fun, family day out, look no further than an RNLI Come Visit Us event. 

Lifeboat stations around the UK and the Republic of Ireland are opening their doors to welcome visitors. Every station’s event is different, but typically you’ll be able to meet the crew, see the lifeboats, play games, buy souvenirs, and try the local food and drink.  

We welcome curious locals and holidaymakers, whether the sun’s out or you’re looking for a hands-on rainy day activity.

 

 

See below for confirmed locations and dates.

Please note, operational requirements at the station may mean that Come Visit Us is cancelled at short notice.
