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

However, we are pleased to announce that the RNLI shop at Falmouth Lifeboat Station is now open again. So why not pop down to the shop to view this years extensive range of Christmas Cards along with our wide range of other RNLI gifts. Every purchase will help support the work of the Falmouth Lifeboats and their volunteer crew.

The opening times are:
Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday – 10am till 4pm
Tuesday – 11am till 4pm
(The shop will be closed from 12.45 – 1.15pm each day for cleaning).

Please note that there may be occasions when the shop is unable to open during some of these times due to volunteer shop staff not being available. We would like to apologise for this if it happens. You can check before coming to the shop by phoning 01326 210844.

Thank you for your continued support.
