Skegness Town Information

Sitting on the north side of The Wash, Skegness first became a seaside resort in the late 19th century as part of the railway boom. Thanks to its long, sandy beach it quickly became a favourite destination for thousands of Midlanders taking their annual holidays.

Its potential was again spotted in 1936 by the great holiday-entrepreneur Billy Butlin who opened his first holiday camp here on a former beet field.

The resort possesses a remarkable reputation for its bracing sea air and offers visitors a host of traditional seaside entertainment. Although its pier was wrecked during the storms of 1978 it has expansive dunes, beautiful seafront gardens and two golf courses.
