Mini guide to Skegness

     

Traditionally a quiet coastal village until the development of the railway system in the late 1800s, Skegness is Lincolnshire's most popular tourist town, drawing visitors from around Britain to its six-mile beach and wealth of other attractions.
Famous for its Butlins Holiday Camp, which first opened back in 1936, Skegness epitomises all that is great about traditional British seaside resorts.

If you are looking for a town with historical interest, then Skegness is probably not the place for you. The town, while not devoid of heritage, is very much a 20th century development geared towards the annual influx of visitors. Besides its coastline, the Lincolnshire countryside is the area's biggest appeal and is for many their reason for visiting.

There are a multitude of attractions to choose from, with something for all ages. The Natureland Seal Sanctuary is one of the most popular attractions and features a specialised collection of animals plus a seal sanctuary. During high season, the Embassy Centre Theatre is packed in the evenings as it plays host to shows featuring some of entertainment's biggest names.

As Skegness is a prime tourist destination, there is no shortage of good places to eat; traditional fish and chips can be enjoyed at their best, while alternative options include American, Chinese, Indian and Italian cuisine. There are plenty of seaside pubs where you can drink with friends or have some great traditional pub grub.

Just along the coast from Skegness is Mablethorpe, an equally popular, but less developed resort. Take a day trip to appreciate the beautiful clean beaches or head for Wainfleet, a former port which lies four miles from the sea and is said to stand on the site of the old Roman town of Vainono.

If you are arriving by car, the A52 takes you direct to Skegness town centre. As a popular tourist spot, the town is well served by both coach and rail services, while the nearest international airport is in the East Midlands.
