RNLI Margate Station with A85 and Dclass outside the front

Margate Lifeboat Station

Margate’s lifeboat station is located on the promenade next to Turner Contemporary art gallery. It is home to a B Class lifeboat and a D Class inshore lifeboat. As Margate is a popular seaside resort, they’re particularly busy during the Summer months.
