Skegness, the birth place of Butlins has proved to be one of the East coast’s most enduring of seaside resorts. From the first days of all those train trips in the 19th century to present day, it remains a firm favourite with holiday makers.
From walking on what was the fourth longest pier in England, to learning about the wildlife along the coast (including the seals) to walking in one of the early coastal Victorian pleasure gardens you’ll see many sides to Skegness.
