CORONAVIRUS UPDATE
Our RNLI shops and museums are beginning to open and the college has started to welcome back hotel guests - check ahead to avoid disappointment. Our lifeboat stations remain operational but are not open to visitors.

Our lifeboats will continue to launch to those in peril at sea. We urge you to follow government instructions. But if you are at the coast, please take extra care and follow our safety advice.

Visit our lifeguarded beach page for a list of patrols now on service.
