  • Free entry and lots of history of the RNLI and the famous rescue by Grace Darling and her father. They have the actual boat she used! The staff were very friendly and gave us a leaflet with all the other places to see in the area. Visit the RNLI Grace Darling Museum first! The kids loved it.
  • A amazing little museum to an amazingly brave "Girl" who died so young. She now represents all the very brave volunteers who save lives all around our coast. The museum and RNLI shop is well worth a visit. Then pop over the road to pay respect at Grace's grave.
