Best Things To Do & Days Out In Skegness

There are lots of wonderful things to do in Skegness, which might bring back memories of a sleepy seaside town you visited as a kid.

All popular seaside resorts revolve around their beach and the Central Skegness Beach has family fun in spades. Go bowling, play video games, laser tag and enjoy an indoor play area on Skegness Pier and build sandcastles on the beach!

Nearby is Natureland Seal Sanctuary, which has penguins, an aquarium, a tropical house and a butterfly house as well as the friendly and playful resident seals.  The pets’ corner is ideal for smaller children who can get close to their favourite furry friends.

No family British seaside holiday is complete without a round of crazy golf at Jolly Roger Adventure Golf. Play nine holes of this pirate themed course and see who comes out as Captain of the game at the end as you enjoy some nostalgic beach fun on Skegness family days out.  

Four miles out of the centre is Fantasy Land, a weather-resistant theme park that’s all undercover and features fantastic family friendly rides such as roller coasters, water rides and a special Galactic Play Zone for multi-level play.

If you want to extend your stay then Butlins Skegness is just three miles from the centre. Enjoy water rides at Splash Waterworld, challenge your family to a game of football or basketball and enjoy quality time together, making some new memories.
