With famous seaside resorts and great beaches, beautiful countryside and bucket loads of fascinating history, Lincolnshire is a holiday destination that surprises every time you visit.
Lincolnshire holiday parks
There's a choice of two excellent Parkdean Resorts holiday parks. Southview, set in pretty parkland on the outskirts of Skegness, has its own indoor pool and plenty of amusements, plus a nine-hole golf course for happy hackers. Sunnyvale, between the resorts of Mablethorpe and Cleethorpes, also has a wide range of amusements, including its own fishing lake.
Skegness is one of the UK's best known seaside resorts. You'll discover Blue-Flag awarded beaches, a huge list of traditional seafront attractions ...from karting to crazy golf..., and big name cabaret shows taking to the stage at the town's Embassy Theatre.
Lincolnshire is not lacking in fabulous seaside resorts. Mablethorpe is another of our favourites. Who can argue with a giant golden beach ...with the Blue Flag award... and a promenade lined with all the shops, arcades and fairground attractions we love for a nostalgic short break.
Walk the Wolds
Lincolnshire's Wolds are a protected Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and the landscape of woodland, gentle hills and abandoned chalk pits offers up a striking array of rare flowers and wildlife. After a bracing walk head to any of the tiny villages for delicious, and deserved, refreshments.
For walkers and wildlife lovers, Gibraltar Point Nature Reserve is a network of paths along the coast from Skegness to The Wash that take visitors through the major seashore and freshwater marsh habitats without disturbing the impressive array of plant life and animals.
A castle and cathedral
Head inland to discover the old city of Lincoln. The highlights of any visit are the magnificent cathedral ...one of Europe's finest..., and Lincoln Castle. With a little imagination, you can stand in the middle of the cobbled square that sits between the two towering buildings and picture how the town's medieval inhabitants felt.
Hooked on fishing
To imagine the dangers of fishing faced by trawler men in the 1950s, head to Grimsby's National Fishing Heritage Centre and experience a recreated voyage to fishing grounds, complete with authentic aromas and moving deck. If you can stomach the journey, enjoy a well-deserved fish and chip dinner at the end of your day.
