Skegness Property Hotspot

It is not just a well-known English holiday resort, but also a place in which to live, start a family or even embark on some further education. Here are just some of the reason why Skegness might be the right move for you. 

House Prices 🏠

Property Investment 🏠 🏠 

  • In the past year, house prices in Skegness have increased by an average 5%, with most sales being of detached houses – followed by semi-detached and terraced properties
  • Estate agents Savills estimate that Skegness and the surrounding area have one of the highest proportions of bungalows on the market – accounting for 38% of all sales
  • The over 60s account for approximately 29% of the resident population – compared to a national average of some 21%

Economy ££

  • Skegness is a typical example of an English seaside resort that has probably enjoyed more prosperous times
  • But it is still one of just three remaining Butlin’s resorts, and has seen substantial redevelopment and investment
  • There are frequent reports in the local media about ways in which any further decline in Skegness as a tourist destination might be reversed
  • Nevertheless, some employment sectors (chiefly manufacturing, wholesale and retail trades, hospitality and administrative support) show vacancies well above the national average.

Location and Transport 🚌

  • For a town located on the generally less accessible east coast of England, Skegness is in fact well served by road, bus, and rail services
  • It is the terminus for the Skegness to Grantham railway line
  • The A52 trunk road connects the town to Boston to the south and the A16 lies just to the north. 

Education 🎓 

  • Skegness has five primary schools (4 publicly run and one independent)
  • There are two secondary schools – one of which is a Grammar school and the other an Academy
  • The tertiary sector is served by Lincolnshire Regional College and Skegness College of Vocational Training.

Environment 🌷

  • The fine beaches of Skegness stretch as far as the other coastal towns on this part of the Lincolnshire coast
  • Skegness Water Leisure Park lies a short distance to the north of the town
  • The town’s Central Beach has won the highly-prized Quality Coast Award. 

Trivia 🎬

Finally, did you know …

  • Skegness Pleasure Beach has a suspended roller coaster called the Queen Bee, where part of the ride passes through a honeycomb – in addition, there are two other “coasters” suitable for children and one for adults
  • The annual Great British Rock and Blues Festival was held in Skegness during January 2017
  • Butlin’s holiday camp at Skegness was opened in 1936 – the first woman to fly solo from the UK to Australia, Amy Johnson, did the honours.
