Welcome to the Lincolnshire Coast guide to Skegness.
Located on the official 'drier side of Britain',Skegness is a seaside resort that offers a friendly atmosphereproviding hours of entertainment for friends and family of all ages.
Skegness had been little more than a village with fewer than 400 residents, most of whom earned a living as fishermen or farm labourers, until the town's first rail link was built in the mid 1870s. Once the trains began rolling into town, Skegness soon burst into life as the successful seaside resort we know today. The frequent rail excursions that brought visitors to Skegness in their thousands also gave rise to one of the town's best known icons - the cheerful and irrepressible Jolly Fisherman.
