Skegness Caravan Holidays

Caravan Hire in Skegness
Just like many other resorts on the British Coastline, some of the first visitors Skegness saw, were the well-off people who could afford the train fare to the seaside for a day trip. The railway arrived in 1875, and a now infamous poster called ‘The Jolly Fisherman’ was commissioned by Great Northern Railways to advertise excursions to Skegness. The arrival of the railway, along with plans instigated by the Earl of Scarborough, helped Skegness expand into a resort, with the arrival of one of the first Butlins holiday parks in 1936 broadened its appeal, and place in British seaside history.

Today, the Lincolnshire town of Skegness has plenty for all the family to see and do, including traditional seaside attractions. A pier has existed in Skegness since 1881, and originally housed a concert hall, and traditional stalls and entertainment. Now, visitors can walk to the open deck at the end of the pier, and enjoy the amusement arcades and bowling alley. Skegness Pier is joined in the town by Lucky Strike Family Entertainment Centre, and Fantasy Island, which houses the largest 7 day market in Europe, in the entertainment listings for the area.

Away from ‘theme park’ style entertainment, check out the volunteer run ‘The Village’, the only open air museum in the county, and one that boasts a whole host of interesting exhibits related to the farming industry. They also run fun events such as garden parties, and vintage festivals.  There’s also thrilling stock car racing at Skegness Stadium, water-skiing with Skegness Cable Ski Centre, and the only licensed parrot sanctuary in the UK.

Away from tourist attractions, you’ll find plenty of places to eat and drink, many of which are family friendly, and serve up anything from traditional home cooked British food, to Italian specialities. For those holidaying in the area, and into caravanning, there’s also a selection of holiday parks where you can hire a caravan. Want to find out what the town has to offer?
