Station visits 

We have restarted visits for the public again. We can take you aboard our Severn class AWB and in the wheel house, show you round our Atlantic 85, and see all the crew kit ready for a "Shout".

Visits can now be pre-arranged for groups of 1 to 32 by emailing the station.

The station is at 24 hour readiness and operational necessity is our priority so tours may have to be altered at the last minute.

If you have mobility issues we will do our best to show you as much as you think you can manage, as there are steps and sloping gangways to parts of the station.

We look forward to seeing you.
