Littlehampton has one of the busiest RNLI lifeboat stations in the country, launching within minutes in an emergency, and manned entirely by volunteers.
The boathouse is open to casual visitors to view our two lifeboats, the Atlantic 75 ‘Blue Peter 1’ and D-Class ‘Ray of Hope’, between 10am and 4pm for most of the year. For group visits please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Littlehampton beach is protected by RNLI Lifeguards.
If you think someone is in danger, dial 999 and ask for the Coastguard.
There is no charge to visitors or to those we rescue, but as a charity, the RNLI is entirely dependent on donations. The RNLI Shop alongside the boathouse offers a range of goods, gifts and souvenirs, or place your donation in one of the collecting boxes.
