Lifeboat Road - Arriving by Coach

Please read all of the notes on this page before you proceed with your booking.

  • All groups are advised to book access whether arriving by coach, mini-bus or on foot as we will have to refuse entry to un-booked groups when we are fully booked or when bookings are restricted due to site events or capacity.
  • Coach access to Lifeboat Road is bookable from this page, simply select the number of coaches you want to bring and ‘check dates’ to see availability and proceed to book.  
  • Education Group Membership (EGM) is specially designed to allow education groups free entry to most places owned by the National Trust. This type of membership is for not-for-profit groups or home educators whose members, pupils or students are in full-time education. Consider joining if you are not a member, call Formby on 01704 874949 or contact Membership on 0344 800 1895 to find out more about joining.
  • Schools that already have EGM can use the promotion code EGM to book free access to the site, simply type EGM, your membership number and expiry date on the following booking form and show your EGM membership card on arrival. Showing your card on arrival is essential as we cannot currently look up EGM members at our entrance places at Formby.
  • Use the promotion code LINKS if you have a Links Pass to bypass payment and show your card on arrival.
  • Cancellations made on genuine bookings 28 days in advance of the visit date will be fully refunded. This site is live so that you can see availability and book both your access and your coach with confidence, at the same time. Call 01704 874949 with your booking reference and date of visit to cancel. Please always call if you need to cancel as other schools can then visit. No refunds within 28 days of the visit date.
  • EGM members who book but do not arrive will be expected to pay the standard rate on any future visits to Formby; this will then be refunded on arrival if a valid membership card is presented.
  • Always check tide times before you book if you want to use the beach. We recommend that you stay off the beach one hour either side of high tide. Further risk assessment guidance notes will be included in your downloadable ticket, once you book.
