Based in one of the UK’s most popular seaside resorts, Skegness hotels are an excellent choice for both family holidays and romantic getaways to this celebrated town on the coast of Lincolnshire.
Whether you plan to make sandcastles with the kids, take a swim in the sea or simply bask in sunshine on the shore, Skegness’ award-winning beaches are the perfect place to spend the summer months. The Blue Flag-awarded Skegness Beach is a sprawling sandy area to enjoy throughout the year and there are a number of other beaches within easy driving distance of the town, including Ingoldmells Beach and Anderby Beach.
Dogs are banned from the busiest sections of the beach over the peak period from May to September, but they can be taken for walks in nearby Ingoldmells in Glebe Park, Queen Elizabeth Playing Field and Ingoldmells Churchyard. Skegness Beach is now also accessible to wheelchair-users thanks to a project that provides large-wheel beach-friendly wheelchairs for a small deposit.
One of the most popular attractions in Skegness is Fantasy Island, a theme park with a range of different rides for thrill-seekers of all ages. A perfect choice if you’re travelling with the family in tow, Fantasy Island has everything from large rollercoasters such as The Odyssey and The Millennium to rides for younger kids such as The Monkey Jump and The Jellikins.
Another big amusement centre in the area is Bell Leisure, an entertainment complex that spans three floors and a range of attractions including indoor mini-golf, a milkshake bar and ten-pin bowling. If you’d rather unwind with a film, Skegness Tower Cinema is a two-screen cinema in the heart of Skegness. Of course no trip to Skegness would be complete without walking along the length of Skegness Pier. The pier stretches out 562m from the shore and features a variety of arcades and attractions for kids.
Animal lovers will want to pay a visit to the Natureland Seal Sanctuary, a wildlife centre on the North Parade of Skegness. As well as seals, visitors can get up close to African penguins, crocodiles, goats, tarantulas, snakes, terrapins and scorpions. If you’d rather see animals in their natural habitat, the Gibraltar Point Nature Reserve is to the south of Skegness and contains a rich variety of birdlife, from wildfowl to waders.
