Trains to Skegness

The home of Butlins holiday resort since 1936, Skegness is a holidaymaker's paradise. The enticing Blue Flag beaches of England's east coast are the first thing you'll see as the train pulls into the station, a station that changed the town's fortunes when it was built in 1875. Before the rail's arrival, Skegness was primarily a fishing village, but when Great Northern Railways announced the line, there were high hopes for the potential seaside resort. In 1908 the company commissioned the now-famous poster with the words 'Skegness Is So Bracing' alongside a picture of the Jolly Fisherman. The town never looked back, as is evident by the town's mascot in the station's entrance, jovially welcoming passengers into the town. The Blackpool of the East Coast, Skeggy as it's affectionately known, has more to offer than beaches, however. The floral gardens provide refuge from the winds of the North Sea, as do the penguins and seals at Skegness Natureland, all within walking distance of the rail station.
