Opening times

The Fishermen’s Lifeboat Museum and the Peter Coke Shell Gallery reopened on Saturday 9th April for the 2022 summer season. Unfortunately opening hours are much more restricted at present than before the pandemic because of a lack of volunteer stewards.

Opening hours over the next few days are projected as (but cannot be absolutely guaranteed):

Fishermen’s Lifeboat Museum, Saturday 21st May, 12 noon to 4 pm, Monday 23rd May, 12 noon to 2 pm, Tuesday 24th May, 12 noon to 4 pm, Thursday 26th May, 12 noon to 2 pm, Saturday 28th May, 12 noon to 2 pm.

Entry to both is free, but please leave a donation to help us cover our operating costs.

Unless further Covid measures are introduced it is planned that the Fishermen’s Lifeboat Museum and Peter Coke Shell Gallery will be open on most days until the end of September, but with restricted hours until more volunteers are recruited.
