On the rural North Sea shores of England, Skegness Beach is one of the country’s most famous sandy stretches and currently holds a Blue Flag Award. The town around it retains much of its classic seaside resort charm today, with all the amusements, fairgrounds, paddling pools and fish & chips you could hope for. While rain can occasionally dampen its spirits, when Skegness Beach’s weather turns out, there’s nowhere better to be.
Of course, there’s more than just the sand and sea to enjoy with a day out at Skegness Beach. Just metres from the promenade are a whole host of other attractions to pad out your day or weekend with, including:
If you’re visiting Skegness Beach, dogs are not allowed onto the main section of the beach between 1st May and 30th September each year. This includes all the shoreline from the Lifeboat Station on Tower Esplanade, down to the X-Site Skate Park on North Parade. You’re free to bring your dog to any sandy areas outside of these boundaries, however you’re strongly reminded of the importance of cleaning up after your pet. Outside of the May to September summer season, you can walk your pet on the main section of the beach.
Yes, there are several parking areas in around and Skegness. The main Skegness Beach parking is at either Pierside North or Festival car parks, both right beside the Promenade. Slightly further out in each direction you have North End and Princes Parade car parks. There are charges and prices vary throughout the year, so check these online before you travel.
Skegness and its beach sit on the Lincolnshire Coast in the east of England. As a largely rural county, there are no motorways to take you towards Skegness if you’re planning to travel in by car. Instead, you’ll need to use a network of A roads, such as the A16, A158 and A52, depending on your direction. If you’re planning a trip by public transport, the town hosts a main railway station that’s just a few minutes’ walk to the beach. Services at Skegness Station connect to the national rail network via Nottingham. As for buses, a large terminus in the town sees services stop by from places like Boston, Lincoln and Mablethorpe.
Whilst you wait... just think about being in your swimmers, the sun's out and the smiles are big
