With its broad sandy beach, fun friendly atmosphere and wealth of attractions nearby, it's easy to see why thousands of people choose to holiday in Skegness each year, many of whom return year after year. Originally just a small fishing village, it wasn't until the late 1800's, with the arrival of the railway that Skegness became popular as a tourist destination.
