On rivers and around the coastline, our 238 lifeboat stations are built to save lives. From the busiest RNLI station, Tower, on the Thames, to the spectacularly situated St Davids in Wales, each lifeboat station is powered by passionate people, and is always ready to rescue.

Our volunteers would love to welcome you to visit the RNLI lifeboat stations. So why not find your nearest lifeboat station and see one for yourself?
