The Royal National Lifeboat Institution is a well known charity in the UK that provides lifeguards and lifeboats around the British coastline. This saves hundreds of lives at sea each year.
The RNLI Headquarters and College is in Poole, Dorset. They have overnight bed and breakfast accommodation for visitors which is one of the best bargains on the coast. The views across Poole Harbour are spectacular and the College does a good evening meal or is within easy walking distance of the town centre. Staying at the RNLI College is an opportunity to learn about this lifesaving service in the UK and to help the charity as profits are used to support the work of the lifeboats.
