Why visit Skegness

Beach breaks 

The first thing you need to know about camping in Skegness? Lonely Planet once described it as having “everything you could want” in a seaside town (and we’d be very much inclined to agree). Skeggy, as it’s affectionately known by locals and many a visitor, has an action-packed pier and nostalgia-tinged fairground rides. But its focal point is the beach, a stretch of sand that meanders on for a massive 15 miles. 

Animal antics

It’s not just about the coast on your Skegness camping holiday. This seaside resort has a handful of interactive attractions, including a seal sanctuary with tarantulas, penguins and alpacas. Hardy’s Animal Farm has all sorts to see and do too – from family tractor rides to a glass-cased enclosure housing newborn pigs. Visit the Davy Jones’ Locker underwater tunnel at Skegness Aquarium for an up-close look at sharks and stingrays. 

Skegness for kids

As the home of the very first Butlins resort and a spot voted the best place to retire in the UK, Skeggy really does have something for all ages. When it comes to kid-friendly attractions, don't miss the rollercoasters at Fantasy Island, the warm-weather paddling at the Fairy Dell pool or the intricately made miniatures at the Skegness Model Village.

Rainy-day attractions

Whether you’re going glamping in Skegness or staying at a seasonal touring pitch, you’ll want some wet-weather activities just in case. Ingoldmells up the coast is home to Europe’s biggest seven-day outdoor market, with an indoor area for browsing come rain or shine. Taking very young guests on holiday with you? Treat them to ballpit sessions at Tiny Tots Village Indoor Playzone. 

Low-key Skegness

If it all feels a bit busy during your Skegness camping break, get out of town and into a quieter bit of coast. Jaunts to Gibraltar Point National Nature Reserve should be on the cards – this salt marsh framed by two sand dunes is a scenic spot for birdwatching. Keep an eye out for Arctic waterfowl, red knots and Eurasian oystercatchers as you criss-cross the walking trails around the lakes.

Golf for the grownups

Fan of the fairway? Get on the green at one of Skegness’ three golf courses. There’s the Seacroft links on the Point dunes, the nine-hole Skegness Golf Centre and the par-71 North Shore Golf Club.
