Skegness: Day out with family and friends
Last August, our family joined some friends in a three-car convoy to the famous seaside resort town of Skegness, Lincolnshire. The car journey from Peterborough took one and a half hours.
We've been going to Skegness three years in a row now. The last two years were spent only in Butlins holiday resort in Ingoldmells, which is to the north of Skegness.
This year, however, we spent the day in the town centre. We parked at the Festival Tower Esplanade. From the car park, it was a short walk to the beach, fairground rides, mini-golf, arcade & slot machines, and the chippy shops.
Nearby, you can see two of the town's famous landmarks: the Clock Tower and the Jolly Fisherman's statue in the Compass Gardens.
Before leaving home, we tried the fish and chips in Skegness, which our friend told us is quite well known. He led us to the best among them in town. I was not let down.
We've always enjoyed our visit to Skegness. Moreso this year, as we tried the town centre's many attractions in the great company of friends.
