- The Royal Hotel, Skegness
On the North Sea coast of Lincolnshire, Skegness has been a destination for people seeking the health-giving benefits of the seaside since the late 18th century. ‘Skegness is so bracing’ proclaims an iconic railway poster for G.N.R. in 1908. From 1936 to the present day, neighbouring Ingoldmells has also been the home to the first Butlins holiday park, with Billy Butlin being arguably the best-known resident of Skegness. The seafront has a promenade and a pier, which was the 4th longest in Britain when it was built over 100 years ago. Numerous amusement arcades, a boating lake and other entertainments typical of seaside towns are an easy walk along the seafront. Poet, Alfred Lord Tennyson, spent holidays in Skegness as a young man. At night, the neon lights provide a vivid splash of colour, earning the town the nick name ‘Skegvegas’. We will explore the arcades, the grungy elements of the seafront and the pier during this workshop.
