Skegness Pier, which has been under the same ownership since 1976, is up for sale.

Last acquired by Robin Mitchell, entrepreneur of a multinational kids’ rides manufacturing business established in the early 1960s, the Pier is being brought to market by Christie and Co.

The pier was officially opened on 4 June 1881, by the then Duke of Edinburgh, following a nationwide design competition. Typical of designs for the era, it was extended to 1,817 ft long with a deck width of 25ft.

Following many years of evolution, Skegness Pier today comprises a three-deck structure situated on the mainland, together with an external pier deck running out over the beach.
