Up on the east coast of England in Lincolnshire, you’ll find the lovely small town of Mablethorpe, sitting happily next to the North Sea. It’s a pretty popular place during the summers and there are quite a few excellent camping sites and holiday camps in and around the town.
The downtown area features several interesting pubs and restaurant choices, including traditional fish and chip shops, kebab houses, and Indian cuisine.
There are also a few fun amusement arcades to keep the children happy and busy as well as a small fairground, a skate park, and a miniature sand train on the beach.
The beach is enormous and the boardwalk showcases some of the most colourful beach huts in all of Great Britain.
The town also has an interesting history as Mablethorpe Hall is centuries old and a lifeboat station was built there in 1883 and operated until World War I and has since reopened. Mablethorpe also suffered from the east coast floods back in 1953.
The town hosts a beach hut festival every September which features drama, poetry, and music performances and has held the Mablethorpe Marathon since 2006, when if featured about 2,500 participants. You’ll also be able to enjoy motorcycle sand racing, as it takes place during the winters and springs.
Mablethorpe is a thoroughly enjoyable town for people of all ages, especially during the summertime.
