Skegness Lifeboat Station is an RNLI operated lifeboat station located in the town of Skegness in the English county of Lincolnshire. The station is located on the south-east coast north of the Wash and south of the Humber Estuary. This area of the British coastline is characterised by many shoals and constantly changing sandbanks, many of which lie between the town and the East Dudgeon Lightship. The current station was built in 1990 and was the first in the British Isles built especially to house a Mersey-class lifeboat. The boathouse also accommodates an Inshore Lifeboat and a souvenir shop. There are currently two lifeboats stationed at Skegness (2013). They are the Inshore D-class Lifeboat RNLB Marie Theresa Bertha Barras (D-792) and the Shannon-class AWB RNL Joel and April Grunnill (ON 1324)

Big shopping area, with a variety of shops, a lot of sales and discount shops, so very good value for mney
In 1955 lightning struck the clock tower generating 1.21 gigawatts. Sorry that's a movie. Seriously though the clock tower is quite iconic for skegness as the fishermen that stands above the fountain.
The historic and iconic symbol of Skegness. Once u get this far u know your going 2 have s good day.
Skegness was very nice, a good array of shops and very clean. Townsfolk really friendly and helpful. The beach is massive and very well kept
A very good place for adults and kids as well. Love to visit again
Not been for about 5 years, no fear of anything changing though. Good old Skeg Vegas, consistent and persistent. 😂
Its not a venue its a landmark that dates back in time. It stands on a roundabout on Skegness seafront. Very picturesque.
One Famous Landmark,One Thing I Always Remember Of My Childhood & Rows & Rows Of Fish & Chips Restaurants, Generally Family Entertainment & Not Forgetting The Seaside Rides & Miles Of Beach
The landmark for the centre of Skeg, with shops, pubs and food outlets. 100 yards to the promenade and beach. Looks amazing when lit up during the evening. Lots of work has been done in the area to clean it up after years of neglect. There is all of the usual seaside amenities, car parks and shops within walking distance. Lots of things for kids to do, a spotless beach that is raked daily. The main beach is dog free from Easter until 30th September, but dogs are allowed on the beach south of the clock all year around, there are penalties for fouling. We visit about twice a year out of season as the dogs love it there!
What can you set about Skegness that has not been said before, it's a very typical sea side town that has seen better times but they keep on coming back every summer year after year because when the sun shines on Skegness it's like no place else, except all those other Old British Seaside Towns which are Great and Great British tradition that is still giving millions the best of memories for there old age.
A typical British seaside. For lunch we had Fish and Chips cup of tea. Went for a walk along promenade. Had Cocktail. Finished up with a ice cream. Lovely days outing.
Been there for way over 50 years. Tells the time well. Don't go to the clock tower restaurant / cafe which is close by it only gets 1 ⛥ it's very expensive for what they serve up . There's better places to eat
Its not changed at all. All memories from childhood visits flood back when returning with your own children. A great meetibg point. Will meet you at the tower. Dont park at the car park near the tower, very expensive drive towards the shops and its first left. £1.50 for 2 hours
It's nice to see the Skegness clock tower cause if you know skeg like I do you know your a left hand turn from the beach
Great place to go and plenty for the kid's to do. Lovely beach, the pier and pleasure beach are fun too. There's plenty of crazy golf and many restaurants for every taste...
If you visit Skegness you won't miss the clock tower. It is lovely construction. Situated I the heart of Skegness you can view the tower from all angles. We used it as a focal point to work out where we were. The clock tower itself is in the middle of a roundabout so though access around is easy. Kids will enjoy looking, it is not suitable with heavy traffic and care must be taken. Viewing from the road side though is perfect and parking is available.
