Overall Guide : Among the tourist attractions in Skegness, SkegnessPier is an amazing indoor amusement centre for children where there is bowling, hi-tech video games and refreshment stalls. In the summer the pier has a number of seaside attractions such as bungee trampoline,... more a big slide, hook-a-duck and more. Skegness Water Leisure Park is near the golden beaches of the town and one can indulge in a number of activities here such as fishing in the lake, the Lincolnshire Coast Light Railway, the Barn Inn, Cable Tow water skiing and more. The beaches at Skegness are worth visiting and a ride on the Pedicab, the latest attraction here, is a mus,. These pedicabs offer a tour of the seafront along the Grand Parade and the North Parade to the lifeboat station and back. The other attractions on the beaches include an embassy centre, a waterway, long promenade gardens of thirty four acres and more. The Natureland Seal sanctuary is a place where children will have a great time watching the aquarium, natural seals, crocodiles, snakes and other attractions.

Overall Guide : Had an enjoyable stay with visit to embassy theatre lovely visit. b@b very close to seafront so no need for transport once there, if there for a week or so make sure you check what's on at the embassy as... more they have some great shows on that could pass you by. Seafront beautiful and clean and very safe and the pleasure park very good value for money. Get the pass as a couple rides soon, adds up to price of the all day bracelet we found it great value for money

Overall Guide : Really clean and vibrant. think its time the council claimed the sea path back off the golf course as it would make a brilliant walk/cycle path all the way as far as you want to go. its only that bit... more that breaks up the sea path between skeg and mablethorpe. i think it would be an excellent tourist opportuntinty.

Overall Guide : As a yank, who visits Skegness to hang out with friends, I really enjoy the feel of this quaint little town. There's a few arcades and some shopping about, and the old castle to check out. Its really nice if... more you want to get away from the fast paced city life. And, a plus for me is that its on the sea.
