Get your sunscreen and sun hat, pack your bucket and spade or buy one when you get there, come and join us on a visit to the beach, we’re off to Skegness!!!
Looking for things to do in Skegness? This seaside resort comes with the classic English seaside holiday activities; the donkey rides on the beach, the pier, the crazy golf, but there’s more to come from this Lincolnshire town. “Skeggy”, as it’s affectionately known, is home to several regular international arts and music festivals which transform the town every year.
With rollercoaster rides and a seal sanctuary, there’s also plenty for kids to enjoy, whether it’s the thrills of a ride or the joy of seeing seal pups on their way back to being reintroduced to the wild. With a Blue Flag beach, Skegness has something for everyone.
One of the largest amusement centres in Europe, Skegness Pier is the place for traditional family fun! No visit to Skegness is complete without a walk through the Pier and out onto its decking. There is something for all members of the family including children’s play areas, which have ball pools and big slides and shooting cannons.
