    RNLI Blackpool lifeguard station highlights

    RNLI Blackpool Lifeguard Station is one of two lifeboat stations to feature “inshore lifeboats.” This site features up to date lifeboats ready to whisk rescuers into perilous situations at sea. At this site, visitors can see three types of active lifeboats: the William and Eleanor B class, the Eileen Mary George D class and the Basil Eric Brooks D class lifeboat.

    While the boathouse was completed in 1998, the RNLI shop is kept up to date with trendy gifts that help support the rescue missions at the RNLI Blackpool station. At the shop, you’ll find fun gifts for souvenirs such as clothing, home goods and books.
