Visiting Lincolnshire


There is always plenty to see and do at any time of the year in Mablethorpe. Our  seaside town has much to offer for all ages and all interests.
The safe award winning sandy beaches stretch for miles and are a great playground for children and adults alike. Within minutes you can be enjoying a round of golf at nearby Sandilands or Kenwick golf courses, casting out for fish from the beach or many local inland ponds, or taking nature in by walking along to the Seal Sanctuary. There is a great selection of cafes, restaurants and bars, or beautiful parks and gardens.

Sutton on Sea

A charming seaside village, Sutton on Sea has a tranquil and safe atmosphere and the award-winning beach is the jewel in the crown of this lovely quiet resort. There is much to discover: the golden beach, the Pleasure Gardens which includes a paddling pool, tennis, crazy golf and bowls or just enjoy a cup of tea in one of the many tearooms in the village. Take a pleasure ride on the open-top bus along the Prom and you will arrive in Trusthorpe.


Travel from the Lincolnshire Wolds towards the coast and you focus on St James' spire, 500 years old and 295 feet high, your first glimpse of Louth. As you get closer its warm stone contrasts with the red brick and pantiles of the houses. A concoction of different styles in an intricate network of streets. Altogether a satisfying blend. As well as the markets, the surrounding farmland provides mouthwatering, fresh produce for the local shops, cafes and tea rooms, pubs and restaurants.

Fun Coast and the Rural Coast

The Lincolnshire Coast is host to two very different seaside experiences - The Fun Coast and the Rural Coast. Splashing, laughing, sand and sea - The Fun Coast, stretching from Skegness to Mablethorpe is home to some of the finest seaside resorts in the UK. The most famous resort must be Skegness one of the UK's top seaside destinations and famous for the Jolly Fisherman. Chapel St. Leonards is a mixture of the traditional and the modern whilst Ingoldmells is home to the famous Fantasy Island Millennium Roller Coaster and Butlins. Skegness, Mablethorpe and Sutton on Sea are three out of only 83 European Blue Flag beaches UK wide and they also have the Tidy Britain Group's Seaside Award. Between and beyond the popular beaches the haunt of wildlife thrives in the unbroken tranquility of the Rural Coast. Gibraltar Point, Saltfleetby, Crook Bank, Donna Nook, Moggs Eye and more all reward those seeking the natural coastline. Off the beaten track, a haven for nature lovers, birdwatchers, conservationists and the romantics. These wild stretches of sand are some of Lincolnshire's greatest natural assets.
