As seaside resorts go Skegness has everything you could want from a family break - brilliant bathing, cute animals and lots of glitz. Skegness seafront is the centre of attractions and packed with things to see and do.
Skegness' Pier has been standing for more than 125 years and in its modern get-up has ten-pin bowling and glow bowling, Laserquest and Captain Kids Adventure World. Offering more fun for the kids is Botton's Pleasure Beach, which is a traditional funfair with a wide mix of rides.
Seal of approval
Natureland offers a change of pace to the seafront amusements. The centre's work with abandoned seals is respected and copied worldwide and Natureland has now become an important reserve for seals and penguins. The team mixes educational messages with fun and feeding times that will captivate your kids, especially when they get involved at children's corner.
The names in lights at the Embassy Theatre include latest stars and seaside favourites, comedians, bands, musicals and plays, plus popular family shows.
Away from the bright lights is Gibraltar Point Nature Reserve, which maintains the scientifically important coast from Skegness to The Wash and includes a diversity of habitats from seashore to freshwater marsh. There is a network of paths, designed to take the visitor easily around the major habitats whilst keeping disturbance to a minimum.
