The traditional home of the great British seaside holiday, Skegness is famed for its bright lights, Blue Flag beach and nostalgic amusements. Here the kids can discover all the classics; donkey rides, arcades and candyfloss on the promenade.
They’ll love the Victorian pier here too, with its atmospheric laser quest arena, ten-pin bowling alley and huge indoor soft play. If they still have energy to burn, visit Fantasy Island. Older kids will get a kick out of white-knuckle rides like the Volcano and the Odyssey, while SeaQuarium and the Jets offer gentle thrills for tots.
Complementing the resort’s bounty of seaside attractions, are a range of museums, theatres and wildlife sights. Natureland Seal Sanctuary helps injured seals to recuperate and is a home for jackass penguins, meerkats and crocodiles. The lagoons, ponds and marshes of nearby Gibraltar Point are perfect for wildlife encounters too – including skylark and snipe.
