Pleasure Island Cleethorpes
From Cleethorpes to Skegness the Lincolnshire coast has a little bit of everything, from the Sandy beaches of Donna Nook to the hustle and bustle of Skegness, there is something for everyone.
Lincolnshire: England's fourth largest county, so it's no surprise that it offers a wealth of things to do and see.
You'll see why the Lincolnshire coast is the favourite holiday destination of many families. The sea air, miles of golden award-winning beaches, rollercoaster rides and annual events like summer carnivals and Skegness' hugely successful arts and music SO Festival provide countless reasons to come back again and again. Just down the coast look out for Mablethorpe and the bathing beauties contest that takes place annually or perhaps you are more of a thrill seaker, in which case a ride the the Odyssey at Fantasy Island theme park in Ingoldmells is the place for you.
Toward the north end of Lincolnshire lies Grimsby, a town proud of its identity as a busy seaport. The National Fishing Heritage Centre - a museum depicting life in the 1950s and offering a chance to tour a trawler - can be found here.
With all this and much more besides, it's easy to see why Lincolnshire remains a firm favourite as a holiday destination.
Long before 'local' 'seasonal' 'sustainable' and 'organic' became buzz words, Lincolnshire was leading the way in living off the land and keeping old traditions and recipes alive. Food and drink in Lincolnshire is at the very heart and soul of our way of life.
Its specialities are not only devoured in the county but rightly popular across the country, from award-winning, tangy Lincolnshire Poacher cheese to the familiar peppery flavour of sage-flecked, coarse-ground Lincolnshire sausages and slabs of the succulent, marbled Lincoln red beef....this is proper English food.
