    We are traveling up to Skegness tomorrow, is there any where to park for a few hours over looking the sea with our Motorhome. By the way, we are on our way to Scotland as we do every year, but we had to do a slight detour from South Glos to the South East coast of Kent to visit a friend of Shirley's.

    Don't take a motor powered vehicle to Skegness all the locals will stare and point at it.

    Cant think of a carpark without height barriers that has a sea view.
    Most are below the sea wall.

    You'll be lucky - when I go the sea always seems to be on the Dutch side - miles away:frowny:

    You'll need to be about 3,000 feet up with a strong pair of binoculars if it's low tide.

    @pops has been a member since 2012, so what makes you think he'll take any more notice of @Tootles than the rest of us! :restmycase:

    Good job we're staying only one night three miles out of town. The only answer is to arrive after dusk and leave before the sunrises.Thanks everyone.

    A wise move! (y)(y)(y) And how refreshing to buck the popular trend in traveling to 'abroad' :) You will be assured of a warm welcome whilst staying in the Ville, and please take advantage of the lovely walks next to the sun drenched beaches, truly a situation that equals the French Riviera. :)

    PHILISTINE! :eek: Debs, you must go from this place, to another place, and wash your mouth out with salt water. The very idea!! They even have a statue of me in Skeggy. (y)

    Skegness is not very motorhome friendly went last weekend all the car parks have height barriers and the off street parking is a nightmare decided to go into Ingoldmells not much better main car park no height barriers but clearly states no parking for motorhomes.
    Decided to give a camp site a go and was charged £21 for the night with no electric and put in the carpark.
    :(
