- Day Pass to Butlin’s, Skegness
Although it might be the brilliant week’s holiday for some, for others it is perfect for just the day, while you explore the sub-tropical Splash Waterworld, live daytime entertainment in the Skyline Pavilion or traditional outdoor funfair.
If there are children in your group, this is without a doubt the perfect day for them and for adults there is still plenty to explore. For pricing and admission times, see the official Butlin’s website (see below for direct link).

Situated on the Ingoldmells coastline and a stone’s throw from Skegness, this park includes a 7 day market and 27 thrill seeking rides, so the family can be sure to enjoy a day at the theme park and market.
With plenty of passes for rides and indoor entertainment shows, every one of your family will enjoy one of the many attractions here.
- Enjoy a day at the seaside – Skegness Pier and Central Beach
Take a dip in the chilly sea and do your best to catch a tan on the golden beach, before enjoying typical UK seaside delights like the penny arcades, fish and chips and ice cream!
Skegness pier includes bowling, amusements, laser quest and a soft play area, with the advantage of a restored pier complete with free deckchairs to catch the rays and enjoy the view.
- The Parrot Zoo at Boston
This charity organisation has built landscaped gardens set over 16.3 acres for over 1700 resident parrots – the largest collection of rehomed parrots in the UK – as well as many other animals.
