Teddington RNLI Lifeboat Station open afternoon

This event has finished Took place on: Saturday, 25th May 2024

 Free

Teddington RNLI Lifeboat Station will celebrate the charity’s 200th birthday with a station Open Day and a rare chance to see a historical lifeboat.

The former Whitby Lifeboat, William Riley, was built in 1909 and was in service to the RNLI until 1931. It is rarely seen outside its home in Whitby, where it is owned by the Whitby Historic Lifeboat Trust.

On May 25th at around 3pm the final team of the total of 25 rowers will complete a two-day row from Gravesend along the Thames to Teddington Lifeboat station. The teams are made up of members of the trust and the four Thames Lifeboat Stations, Gravesend, Tower, Chiswick and Teddington, accompanied by a cox and a bow person. For the final stretch of this impressive ‘row’, the boat will be accompanied by a picket boat for safety and smaller craft from local rowing and skiff clubs.

The lifeboat station will open its doors from 3pm on Saturday May 25th when visitors will be able to take a close look at Teddington’s inflatable lifeboats, meet volunteer crew members and visit the boat hall. Other emergency services will be coming along with their special vehicles. In addition, there will be a variety of stalls along the waterfront including the RNLI, The Wharf and participating boat clubs.
