There are three indoor heated swimming pools an outdoor swimming pool (summer months), ten-pin bowling, Laser Quest, just to mention a few indoor activities. Not forgetting the ever popular arcades and bingo !

For the active, the coastal plain is only 9 miles from the undiscovered Lincolnshire Wolds, an area of outstanding beauty. Visitors venturing here will find small picturesque villages nestled in rolling landscapes. This is idyllic walking and cycling country, offering miles of deserted country lanes, bridalways and tracks, where a "pint" and a bar snack can be enjoyed in one of the many small pubs and Inns of character. Look on your map for Old Bolingbroke, Tetford, Skendleby to mention a few.

 

 

Gibraltar Point, a designated Nature Reserve is located some 3 miles to the south of Skegness. Approached via Drummomd Road or by various tracks accessed from the southern Skegness beach, Gibraltar Point is a wonderful venue for those seeking peace, tranquility and unspoiled natural countryside.

Nightlife is in abundance from lively pubs to late night clubs and ever popular top-name shows. The majority of nightlife venues are located close to the ;Clock Tower and Grand Parade. Amusement parks are open until late and various alternative attractions are present to test various skills and provide excellent thrills!

 

 

Skegness Carnival Week is well worth noting for a visit to the town, see Diary Events and www.skeg-carnival.org.uk for details and dates. Carnival week is a period enjoyed by both locals and visitors alike and is the culmination of months of preparation by a small, local self managed committee of local residents. During carnival week anything can happen so be prepared for the unexpected! Traditionally carnival week begins with the procession on Sunday, commencing at Wainfleet Road Playing Fields, Skegness. Decorated floats meander as a procession through the town, concluding to the north end of North Parade.

 

 

Activities continue every day during Carnival week where visitors are welcome to join in with fantastic entertainment, displays and competitions - children just love it!
