We passed an hour here, Interesting but not that much to see. The staff are informative and helpful. A good view of the lifeboat. Dogs are welcome although ours was nervous of the walk along the pier.

Thank you for visiting Bembridge Lifeboat Station with its Tamar Class All Weather Lifeboat (RNLB Alfred Albert Williams) last September. Our crew and Guild members, and in particular our volunteer "Visits" guides & those serving in the "Shop" are very proud of the fact that most visitors do kindly give us "excellent" reports, so we are obviously very disappointed that...

A great place to spend half an hour or so. Very informative guides and the chance to see a working lifeboat close to. There is a shop on site and a lovely cafe nearby but unfortunately the cafe is seasonal and closed during winter months.

Get a guided tour by one of the volunteers. If you can be there during a launch (practices most Tuesdays in the summer) or boat recovery that's a real plus.

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.
