Skegness: Donkey ride at the beach

Day-out | Donkey ride | Landmarks

Last month, we went back again to Skegness but this time we tried the attractions at the town centre together with friends.

Skegness has a long and wide sandy beach. There are herds of donkeys available for riding by children. Our boys experienced their first ever donkey ride (above photo). It was a scary start for them but in the end they enjoyed the short ride immensely!

The Royal National Lifeboat Institution (RNLI) has a station in the beach. It is manned by a volunteer crew except for the coxswain, and equipped with two lifeboats. During our visit last month we saw one of the lifeboats, the all weather Lincolnshire Poacher, being washed by the crew.
