Find the Best 5 Skegness Caravan Parks

Skegness has long been attracting visitors to its award winning beach and vibrant resort town. Popular with families escaping the midlands for sunny coastal weekend breaks or returning families who have long fell in love with this iconic traditional seaside resort. Skegness has something for everyone, whether that be relaxing on the stunning golden sandy beach with a book whilst sat on a classic striped deckchair, building sandcastles and chasing the children into the sea. Walking the pier and promenade, or enjoying a donkey ride along the beautiful beach front. Of course, the children will love the amusement arcades, thrilling rides, souvenir shops and eclectic sounds coming from within the Pleasure Beach.

For something a little calmer but still providing as much excitement there’s the boating lake to explore by peddle boat, or a classic showing of Punch and Judy at the Tower Gardens. When the kids do scream “I’m hungry” a visit to Skegness would not be complete without enjoying a bag of freshly cooked fish and chips smothered in salt and vinegar whilst sat down on the Grand Parade and visiting the iconic Jolley Fisherman statue, synonymous with Skegness.
