North Sea Observatory – Chapel St Leonards Details
The North Sea Observatory can be found on the outskirts of the Lincolnshire seaside resort of Chapel St Leonards. There’s paid for parking, but the observatory is worth a visit for the views across the North Sea (as you’d probably expect from the name).
The purpose built building serves as the gateway to the Coastal Country Park which includes the entire section of England Coast Path between Chapel and Sutton on Sea and an ideal stop for those walking the Skegeness to Mablethorpe section. Inside there’s a gallery, Seascape Cafe, seating areas and public toilets. You can choose to enjoy your coffee or meal inside or on the terrace, with extensive views whichever you choose. In the gallery, there’s information about the Bathing Beauties and Structures on the Edge, a collection of art installations along the local coastline that are worth visiting while walking the section. The North Sea Observatory is child friendly as well as dog friendly, including the cafe for most of the day (contact them for specifics).
