Mablethorpe

Long before the days of the package holiday and the budget airline, when British were more restricted in where they could spend their summer holiday, the east coast of England from the Wash up to Hull was a tourist Mecca of beach resorts and holiday camps. In the fifties, sixties and seventies many families chose to spend two weeks at one of the famous beach resorts on the Lincolnshire coast, one of the most popular being Mablethorpe.

Although its heyday is now far behind it and the British have the opportunity to swim in warmer water than the North Sea, Mablethorpe is far from abandoned. It is the perfect example of a traditional British seaside resort, with a huge sandy beach and plenty of amusements on offer nearby. Crazy golf, the game where you try to hit a golf ball through a series of funny obstacles, is still very popular and Mablethorpe has three courses. There’s also a miniature railway, a boating lake with boats shaped like swans, countless amusement arcades and a small fairground. Every kind of distraction for days when the British summer weather keeps you off the beach.
