Skegness & pier have excellent facilities and attractions. From the Pantomime at the Embassy Theartre. The excellent food and beverages at the pier restaurant. Which was excellent value for money. The staff were also polite and efficient at both venues. Would certainly recommend these two attractions.

This place needs some money put back into it really. The amusement arcades are a total rip off! I know its hard to win on those things but when i went it was like the machines were designed to not let anyone win anything. They broke down and i lost money the teddy machines just dropped the teddies or just... More

If you visited recently you may have noticed the current major refurbishment of "Deck 3" (the seaward end of the Pier). Just two years ago Skegness Bowl within Skegness Pier had a £1 Million refurb. You will be pleased to know we have even more exciting plans to come - so make sure you stay tuned :) Thousands of visitors... More

We went bowling here whilst on holiday in the area. The bowling was cheap and good fun which lasted a couple of hours. There was a restaurant and bar available too which was good value for money. We went to the arcades in the evening which closed early ( maybe due to the season) There are plenty of places to... More

Come here fairly often for some great bowling. Last visit gave us new shoes & noticed some new balls. We come for morning session, usually have three or four games, drinks & shoe hire for £6.25 each!! Great value. Friendly, helpful staff & nice clean surroundings make this a pleasant way to spend a few hours.

Good views from a traditional pier. Has some bits and pieces for kids, a couple of things for bigger kids/adults and plenty of snack stalls. I wouldn't say its amazing and could do with a bit of money put into it but it is nice; we do enjoy it.

One day whilst it was raining decided to pop into the pier with the small grandchildren and apart from spending lots of money it was quiet enjoyable. The indoor play area was okay (if not very busy, due to weather outside) and cafe reasonable. Lots of slots as expected and outdoors a small pier to walk along.

On our regular visits to Skegness we always come to Skegness Pier. It's full of things to do. It's not the biggest of piers, but it has just as much to do. Old or young, you will find plenty to amuse yourself here.

My husband and I went here. It has loads of arcades on this pier but not a lot else. It has a very short outside section but it is a viewing point only.

1 night stay in Skegness with my partner her 13 year old daughter and her friend. Spent an hour in the amusements, no problems, the girls had fun, pretty much the same as most seaside amusement arcades. Went downstairs to the ten pin bowling alley. Had couple of games of bowling. The bowling side of things was good, clean shoes... More
