RNLI College

RNLI College logo

Training is fundamental to saving lives. Through the training of our own lifesavers and that of our college visitors, we're making a difference to the number of lives saved at sea. In 2016, our volunteer lifeboat crews rescued 23 people every day, saved 558 lives, and 6,100 lifesavers were trained.

And as an award-winning hotel and conference venue, we welcome everyone to come and experience the home of RNLI training. So whether you take a tour, stay with us, eat, drink and relax with us, celebrate with us, conference with us or even get married with us, you'll be helping to make a difference, whatever you do, where every £1 you spend helps save lives at sea. So you can feel good about your stay with us.
