Remember visiting years ago with my late Father. Struggled to find the place today. The name on sign posts is The Village and it is on the small side. Also the museum is on what looks like an housing estate. Do not be put off....MoreThank you, glad you enjoyed your visit. Unfortunately the signs are county council controlled and cost £1000 each.

Reviewed By olibot - Durham, United Kingdom

We spent a lovely few hours walking around doing some bird watching. It was very windy so that kept the birds out of sight. Despite that a dozen or so different species were spotted.
The lunch in the visitor centre was very nice and had superb views.

Hardys Animal Farm

Hardys Animal Farm is a great day out in over 7 acres of Lincolnshire countryside yet just 10 minutes walk from the beach, with loads of things to do and animals for you to meet feed and make friends with... It's a great day out, whatever the weather! You can see pigs being born in our specially glazed breeding unit, and feed the goats, cattle, and many other animals allowing the children to learn about modern farming and interact with animals in a safe and fun environment. We also have baby Lambs, Goats, Cows and Chicks being born throughout the year. There is plenty of space for the kids to run off energy in our adventure Playgrounds, while you can relax in our award winning tearooms with a hot drink or a bite to eat. Then if the weather is good, you can all go on a relaxing Cart Ride around the Farm with Fergie the Tractor. With our giant outdoor play fort, and the new Haystacks Indoor Playbarn, there are loads of things to do come rain or shine. We are located just north of Skegness, on Anchor Lane in Ingoldmells... Just off the A52. The Number 3 Bus stops at the end of the farm road, running every 8-10 minutes from Skegness, Ingoldmells, Butlins & Fantasy Island

Embassy Theatre

The East Coast's premier entertainment venue, hosting a wide variety of live entertainment and events throughout the year. The Embassy Theatre is managed and operated by Magna Vitae Trust for Leisure and Culture. A Charitable Trust - Charity number 1160156

Reviewed By stephyb65 - Doncaster, United Kingdom

What an excellent night out. Value for money with a mixture of brass band, ladies vocal group. Local dance school dancing Irish riverboat style and a group of ladies playing I think Japanese drums. Whilst they would have been better at Wembley before a ladies rugby match when mixed with the brass band they really came to life.
The brass band played one score after another of a variety of pieces both old and modern and their very own take on war of the worlds which was astounding
The ladies vocal group livened and brightened up the sessions their scores both lively and mixed.
The dance school if you have ever seen river dance then you would have been horribly dissapointed the first half but the second half was much better and kept most of the audience entranced.
Once again the embassy had outshone themselves with their list of acts and with two further visits booked for the new year I can only say don’t miss out ! You would be a fool to think small and backstreet. A lot of current celebrities are visiting over the oncoming year. Go find your choice at a fraction of the cost.

Was a good visit although now we’ve been we won’t go again! Was out of season & boys enjoyed the quiz & seeing the divers feed the fish/sharks but was over quite quickly so found we spent over an hour in the bistro/play area to kill some time!
