Skegness is an excellent and economical base for touring Northern England.
Visitors travelling to Ingoldmells and Chapel St. Leonards from the South (via Boston) may consider taking the A16 from Boston rather than the A52 coastal route. Travel to the Junction of A158, close to the village of Partney. Follow the signposts to Skegness. At Gunby roundabout (shortly after the village of Candlesby) take the third exit to Skegness, but keep in the left side lane. This will filter into rural roads, through the village of Orby and will join the A52 to the north of Ingoldmells village. This route will avoid the necessity of travelling through Skegness town centre, which may be congested at peak times. This route may also be taken to Skegness, but access the right hand lane after Gunby roundabout.
The Lincolnshire coastline is not blessed with the finest roads in the country. Please beware of occasional sharp bends, in particular on the A52 (Boston to Skegness).
