Update on Dartmouth RNLI Visitor Centre re-opening

Tuesday, 27 April 2021
11:00am - 1:00pm

We are delighted to say that our RNLI visitor centre in Dartmouth will now be open on Wednesdays from 11am to 3pm and from 11am to 1pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays. Currently we are only able to offer retail facilities but hope to extend to the full visitor centre experience on, or soon after, the 17th May. Our shop however is full of exciting merchandise, with some new lines along with old favourites.

We run exclusively with volunteers and for the next few weeks at least will only have a small number of our team available. This means that we will opening for reduced hours and days and these may vary depending on volunteer’s availability and public reaction as Covid rules are relaxed. We are also limiting visitors to four at any one time. We hope to be back to full opening after 1st June. 

It is possible to call the shop during opening hours, to find out if we are open, though our volunteers may not be always able to answer. Telephone number: 01803 832423

We are looking for additional volunteers, so if you are interested, (no experience or specific RNLI knowledge necessary) please contact me at tracey.lucas@hotmail.co.uk

 We look forward to welcoming back our visitors.
