RNLI The Lizard Lifeboat Station

The Lizard Lifeboat Station

Set at the foot of a 45-metre cliff, The Lizard Lifeboat Station not only houses Rose, the station’s Tamar class all-weather lifeboat, but has a fantastic heritage display showcasing over 157 years of lifesaving at sea on The Lizard peninsula.
