"English seaside holiday" Skegness by Sjalen

Skegness Travel Guide: 41 reviews and 76 photos

I went here with my friends from Boston on Midsummer Eve. As the rain was pouring down, I as a Swede was wondering what the heck I was doing in a British seaside resort on such an important Swedish holiday. As it happened, the day turned out quite nice with a visit to the sealife park along the beach. Skegness, better known as "Skeggie" to people in the region, is best known for its Buitlins Holiday resort with all inclusive holidays with amusements, holiday rep entertainments and seaside sports. This makes it crowded in summer and Buitlins is maybe not my personal idea of a good holiday. Nevertheless, it's nice to be by the seaside and if you find yourself in Lincolnshire with a day to spare and want to see something very English, go here.
