It was awarded “Best Skegness Attraction in 2015” and when you visit Natureland Seal Sanctuary you will understand why. One of the main reasons why it has become a popular tourist attraction in Skegness and why it is on top of our list of things to do in Skegness is down to all the cute animals that you can see.
Although the name suggests that you only see seals at Natureland Seal Sanctuary, the reality is you see a lot more. There are penguins, meerkats, alpacas, tropical birds/butterflies and so much more. There is even an aquarium, a koi carp pool, and a tropical house.
Don’t worry about getting hungry, Skegness Seal Sanctuary has a nice place where you can go inside and have something to eat and drink.

Skegness Raceway – Stadium
Skegness Raceway which is just two miles inland from Ingoldmells may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but for those that love cars it’s a great place to visit. It was a former greyhound racing and speedway stadium and now it has been brought to life as one of the most popular places to visit in Skegness.

Gibraltar Point National Nature Reserve Skegness
When I visit Skegness, I always like to visit Gibraltar Point National Nature Reserve, but I have never held back on my disappointment on how this wonderful place is ignored by the local tourism bosses. What I mean is, only a small fraction of people who visit the popular Lincolnshire seaside resort and looking for things to do in Skegness know about Gibraltar Point.
More needs to be done by Skegness tourism officials to make more people aware of this magical place. It is a place that should be shouted about and should receive the recognition that it deserves.
As well as being a great place to go for a nice walk, Gibraltar Point with its stretch of unspoilt coastline which runs southwards from the edge of Skegness to the mouth of the Wash is as great place to see a diverse collection of wildlife.
Once you have finished your nice walk, there is a lovely café inside the main building where you can get the best breakfast in Skegness. You can either sit inside or sit outside and watch the wonderful wildlife and admire the view.
Dogs are permitted from September to March
Skegness is very lucky in the fact that it still has its own pier. While some seaside resorts have lost their pier, Skegness is proud to have a pier that people love to visit. So, its no surprise that Skegness Pier is on our list of things to do in Skegness especially with everything it has to offer. You could literally spend all day on the pier.
There is so much to do on Skegness Pier. You can go tenpin bowling, play arcade games or spend money on the slot machines. You can test your skill in zero contact combat gaming with the laser tag arena, or you can test your skill in the Skegness Escape Room.
With so much to do, and the hours you will spend having fun, don’t worry about getting hungry. There are lots of places to eat and all of which are very affordable. But, don’t miss out by staying inside the pier all day long. When visiting Skegness Pier make sure you pop outside and see all the attractions available. Then have a nice walk to the end of the pier and see the wonderful view. Skegness Pier is a real gem.
