Falmouth Lifeboat Station remains closed for visitors and tours at the current time due to the ongoing pandemic situation. This is in order to protect the operational integrity of the crew whilst the COVID-19 virus is prevalent.

Communication with the station will still be available through the website and our social channels, and we hope many who wish to come to see us will be able to do so in the not-too-distant future.

In the meantime, why not take a virtual tour of our Severn class all-weather lifeboat Richard Cox Scott here
