It must have been about 3.30 when we strolled along to the Boat House at Bembridge Lifeboat Station (they close at 4pm) but we were warmly greeted and given a lot of information in a very relaxed and friendly way. We were surprised to see how big a lifeboat is when up close and to hear how much they cost... More

We were given a wonderful informal talk inside the boat house by Bob. A RNLI man for 35 years and originally a Londoner ! Magnificent vessel costing millions. Nice half hour, worth a visit.

A little windy when we first walked along the pier to the lifeboat station, but once we were inside we had a very warm welcome. My kids learnt a lot about lifeboats and I am even discussing different sorts of lifeboats across different locations (I believe the Yarmouth one has a crane of some sort). The expert on hand was...

Visited with grandchildren aged 8&4. They enjoyed dressing up and looking at the lifeboat. More interesting for older children and adults. It is free so worth a visit. Beware you have to pay to use the car park it is badly signed( local council). There are loos by the beach, a cafe and an RNLI shop.

Have visited a couple of times with the children and have been lucky to see a launch at an open day. Well worth visiting.

Visited on a beautiful late summer day in September. Went inside to take a closer look at the lifeboat and met the Station Manager who was very knowledgeable and told us lots of information about the boat, crew, the history and the lifeboat house itself, a really interesting and friendly chap, and not a bad office to work in every...

Walking out to sea on the purposely built walk way was great fun. The life boat is well maintained and once again we were so pleased to know that there are those out there waiting to help those in need on the sea.

Now I do like looking round RNLI stations. I raise money for the crews and their work never ceases to amaze me. This boathouse is a great building and we were lucky enough to be shown round by the station manager. He told some amazing stories from the station and made it a very enjoyable visit. If you do go,... More

Visited today with our two young sons (2 and 10mths) and we were fortunate enough to see the crew launch to a medical evacuation. One of the volunteers was kind enough to put our eldest son in the best spot to watch the launch. He also explained what was happening to ourselves and some other visitors - all very fascinating!...

An eye opening view into the work of the RNLI crews and volunteers and a reminder at how vital their work is, done all around the coast line of the UK. Watching the lifeboat launch was a special moment and was thoroughly enjoyed by all.
