An atmospheric trip back in time

The museum houses the historic  Henry Ramey Upcher lifeboat and other collections relating to the Sheringham lifeboats that were paid for by the local Upcher family and manned by the fishermen themselves. This atmospheric museum is housed in a historic fishing shed on Sheringham’s seafront.

There is information about, and a photographic record of, some of the fishermen who crewed the private lifeboats, many of whom worked in and around the Fishing Sheds. Also displays about how they won their livings from the dangerous waters of the North Sea and other aspects of their lives.

The centre is staffed by volunteers. It is closed in the winter months and when weather conditions are extreme.

Visit their website for information about opening times, admission prices and facilities.
