Skegness is one of the UK's most famous seaside destinations. And the whole coastline here has miles and miles of unspoilt sandy beaches – three with Blue Flags (Sutton on Sea, Mablethorpe and Skegness). For bird watchers and seal spotters, Gibraltar Point, Saltfleetby, Crook Bank and Moggs Eye each offer a sanctuary for wildlife. Nature lovers will also enjoy the Natureland Seal Sanctuary, Hardy's Animal Farm and the National Parrot Sanctuary.
Meanwhile, the sedate Lincolnshire Wolds offer horseback riding, cycling, fishing, and walking paths. In Lincoln and the market towns of Boston, Spalding, Louth, and Stamford there are historical churches, guildhalls, museums, castles, and small shops lining narrow cobblestone streets. In particular, Burghley House and its famous gardens are well worth a visit – after all, this is one of the UK’s grandest Elizabethan houses.
Finally, there’s the fascinating Roman stonework in Lincoln – a historic city that was a key Roman stronghold. In fact, many of Lincolnshire’s roads follow the original Roman routes.448
