Minehead Lifeboat Station

With your support, we save lives at sea. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, the RNLI is ready to save lives. Powered by courage, determination and the support of generous people like you.

Our volunteer lifeboat crews provide a 24-hour rescue service in the UK and Ireland, and our seasonal lifeguards look after people on busy beaches. RNLI crews and lifeguards have saved over 142,700 lives since 1824 but we’re more than just a rescue service. 2024 marks 200 years, and counting, of the volunteer service. 


You'll find Minehead Lifeboat Station in Quay Street just behind the harbour.  The station was originally built in 1901 and has just recently been modernised and extended to provide training space and better crew facilities - but most importantly to speed our launch times.
