The Lincolnshire Coast provides two very different seaside experiences, the 'fun coast' and the 'rural coast'. Surrounding the traditional resorts of Skegness and Mablethorpe, a wealth of wildlife thrives in the tranquil rural coast, with a significantly untapped potential.

Donna Nook receives 60,000 visitors from across the UK and from abroad each autumn, between late October and early January, visiting one of the largest breeding colonies of Grey Seals in the UK.

Gibraltar Point with its dramatic new visitor centre opening soon in the heart of this popular National Nature Reserve which receives 200,000 visitors throughout the year.

Chapel Point Observatory is an exciting new public building and attraction for the area on the edge of Lincolnshire’s Coastal Country Park, which hosts some of the county’s most attractive beaches.

Your thoughts, opinions and experiences are an important part of the process in developing plans for these areas that the will be used to allocate future coastal funds. We want to be able to showcase what is already happening positively in these areas and what can be done to build upon it.

We also want to assist you with finding the advice and support that is out there to help you to build upon the nature tourism market, how you can use this to develop a local marketing offer that will help to increase the footfall into your businesses and communities and how in turn this will increase the seasonality of your area.

Come along for a chat and cuppa with people from Lincolnshire Country Council, Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust and other local businesses from your area and find out more about nature tourism and advice on how you could tap into the nature tourist already visiting your area.

Please contact us with any questions you may have or if you would like to attend on: gibadmin@lincstrust.co.uk
