Caister Lifeboat

The Caister Lifeboat Experience in the Old Shed is now open to the public... during winter we have been refreshing our displays and creating new activities. Visitors can dress up in waterproof lifeboat kit and get on board a real lifeboat - The Shirley Jean Adye - which served at Caister from 1969 to 1991. There's also games and activities to play, you can hear some of the Caister Lifeboat stories in new audio systems which have been fittedaround the shed to add to our display boards. There's also a range of short films, including the Children's ITV show Rosie and Jim - where Caister Lifeboat rescued them on The Old Rag Doll! 

We've made the changes based on what you've told us. Feedback highlighted that adult visitors loved learning about the Caister Lifeboats, but that there wasn't enough for children to do. Now they can. What's more, it's free for everyone.  And when you have had all your adventures you can visit the Bernard Matthews Operational Shed for a well earned cup of tea and a locally made cake
