What to see in Skegness

When you book a hotel in Skegness, you'll be close to the Blue Flag-certified Skegness Beach. During low tide, a lagoon forms where kids can paddle or look for beach wildlife. On clear days, you’ll be able to see a string of 75 wind turbines on the horizon. Just south of Skegness Pier is a small promenade, where you can escape from the winter winds, or enjoy ice cream and donkey rides in summer. The pier has been around since 1881 and stretches out into the North Sea. Kids can spend time at the soft play area, amusement arcade, or trampolines here.

Next to the beach, on the North Parade, you’ll find Natureland Seal Sanctuary, which offers refuge to injured harbour seals and lost pups. You’ll be able to view various rehabilitation activities, as seals are prepared to be released back into the North Sea. Besides seals, you'll also get close to meerkats, penguins, alpacas, crocodiles, scorpions, snakes, and farmyard animals here.

As you stroll around Skegness, you can’t miss the neo-Gothic Clock Tower, which was erected in 1899 to commemorate Queen Victoria's Diamond Jubilee. The tower has a four-faced clock and a weather vane. Close to the Clock Tower are the Tower Gardens, replete with pavilions, bridges, mock castles, a bowling green, and sunken formal gardens.
