The state-of-the-art building on Kingston Beach will welcome visitors who can go aboard the all-weather Tamar lifeboat and D-class inshore lifeboat in the station.

They can also see the lifeboats in action when they launch twice during the day (operationally permitting) and the crew will carry out a man over board demonstration joined by Littlehampton lifeboat.
