All shops and museums, as well as the RNLI College, will close or open as current Government guidance in those areas allows, and is subject to local RNLI operations and volunteer availability. 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.
