Spectacular Skegness, Lincolnshire Wolds & Coast
2020 - Grosvenor Hotel - 5 Days (OML5012)
Explore the Lincolnshire coast & country
Stay in a top hotel right on the seafront opposite Skegness Pier
Join us on this delightful tour to the North East of England. We'll be based in the heart of one of the UK's most famous seaside resorts, Skegness and have some wonderful excursions lined up for you. These include a tour through the charming Lincolnshire Wolds and coast along with visits to the pretty towns of Boston and Spalding.
Our base for this tour is the iconic resort of Skegness. This seaside resort comes with the classic English seaside holiday activities; the donkey rides on the beach, the pier, the crazy golf, but there’s more to come from this Lincolnshire town. “Skeggy”, as it’s affectionately known, is home to several regular international arts and music festivals which transform the town every year. With rollercoaster rides and a seal sanctuary there’s also plenty for kids to enjoy, whether it’s the thrills of a ride or the joy of seeing seal pups on their way back to being reintroduced to the wild. With a Blue Flag beach, Skegness has something for everyone.
PLEASE NOTE: Price is per person and based on two people sharing a twin/double room. Single room supplements and upgrades are not included.
The Grosvenor Hotel
This popular family-run seafront hotel is ideally located right on the seafront and opposite the pier. It has very comfortably furnished rooms with all of the usual amenities you would expect plus a pleasant lounge, bar and restaurant in which you can enjoy delicious meals. It offers some cracking evening entertainment too!
After joining the coach from one of our convenient local pick up points, we head cross country towards Lincolnshire. There will be convenient coffee/lunch stops along the way and we expect to arrive at the lovely Grosvenor Hotel on the seafront in Skegness in the late afternoon. Check in and relax before enjoying a tasty dinner at the hotel and enjoying some great entertainment or maybe venturing out to explore on your own?
Days 2 - 4
Enjoy a traditional English breakfast every day along with free time to enjoy the iconic seaside resort of Skegness on your own. Make sure you don't miss out on our INCLUDED excursions to the Lincolnshire Wolds, Boston and Spalding. Dinner is included back at the hotel every evening along with more fabulous entertainment.
After a final tasty breakfast it is sadly time to bid farewell and we start the journey home, again stopping en route for tea/coffee and lunch breaks.
Lincolnshire Wolds Village Tour
The Lincolnshire Wolds is a range of hills in Lincolnshire and a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty whilst also being the highest area of land in eastern England between Yorkshire and Kent. Attractive hamlets and villages are scattered throughout the area, adding to the charm of the landscape. The market towns on the edge of the Wolds were traditionally the centres of the rural life as places to meet, greet, buy and sell. Today they still play that role with their active markets and lively centres. They are a great place to spend some time and we know that you’re going to love this tour and we'll combine it with some time exploring the lovely Lincolnshire coast too.
In the 15th century Boston was the wealthiest port outside London. Set in the Fens, a region of farmland reclaimed from coastal marshes by the Wash, Boston was where English wool was loaded onto ships to trade with Hanseatic league cities and the port from which a group of Englishmen set sail for the New World and founded a city there of the same name. Today Boston is a charming market town by the sea with a wealth of sights to see including the impressive St Botolph's Church and the Guildhall. It is also home to the Bubblecar Museum, the only museum for cars under 700cc!
Spalding is a warm and charming Georgian town in the Lincolnshire Fens. The town stands astride the banks of the River Welland, in an area of reclaimed marshland. It is here that bulb growers and market gardeners, raise outstanding crops in its legendary rich fertile soil. It is a really interesting place to stroll around. The town contains many charming 18th-century buildings, covering a network of streets on both banks of the river, which is spanned by seven bridges. One of the oldest and most interesting buildings is the restored Ayscoughfee Hall on the Welland's eastern bank. Now open to the public as a museum, set in beautiful gardens. A path lines both sides of the river and a popular circular walk, navigating along both banks, is both easy and very pretty.
