Always come here for Ten Pin Bowling with the lad I'm a carer for. It's great value for money & there are so many deals to be had. Some include a drink, some food, some games by the hour or more for parties etc. Nice drinks bar & food although mostly burgers but that's probably what the kids want anyway.... More

Disappointed in the pier, not well maintained and found very tacky. Once a famous location for time at the coast, there are definitely more appealing sights if you go further afield.

I am very sorry that you were disappointed with your visit to Skegness Pier. Many other people look forward to returning to the Pier regularly and we have many many good comments on our high standards of maintenance and entertainment value. We did in fact spend over one million pounds on refurbishing the Bowling Centre after the recent tidal surge.... More

We took our friends who were visiting Lincolnshire from China to Skeg pier. We toured the arcades which to be honest didn't have a huge choice of up to date games n stuff to play. Some of the machines were broken or had money rammed in so you couldn't use them. The 10pin bowling was a good price and enjoyable.

By definition a Pier should go out into the sea so that it can be used to promenade above the ocean waves. This one is a lump of ugly so called amusements attached to 50 mts of board walk above the beach. Not amused.

I am sorry to read your review which I do not think will be helpful to other travellers because it is not factually accurate. Skegness Pier does extend over the sea on occasions as can be seen by our photographs on Trip Advisor. The Pier Decking is also about 200 meters long, not 50meters. Skegness Pier has many attractions both... More
