Pier Shop Telephone: 01702 469530


The Station's new shop opened on the 4th August 2001. The shop is housed in the new boathouse at the end of the pier. Together with a comprehensive selection of merchandise, the shop also has a public viewing gallery into the boathouse where two of the three Southend lifeboats operate from.

Open 364 days of the year...

(subject to the pier being open), you will find our friendly staff only too pleased to serve you.


Something for everyone...

Fitted out to the RNLI's latest design, the shop boasts a wide selection of goods and gifts including: toys, models, stationary, clothing and accessories, games, badges, books, postcards, key rings, kitchen ware and many other interesting things. There is also a very popular range of RNLI Christmas cards which are available now.


It is staffed by a team of dedicated volunteers that are pleased to welcome you. If you would also like to help out in the shop, then please make yourself known when visiting.
