North Sea Observatory – Chapel St Leonards

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).

Welcome to Walking the England Coast Path.

The original online guidebook to the brand new National Trail around the English Coastline.

In 2020, England will join Wales in having a long distance trail along it’s entire coastline, a distance of around 4,500 km. The path is made possible due to new laws that allow open access to the English coastline, including what’s known as ‘spreading room’ to allow for future changes in the coastline.

The work to open the England Coast Path is ongoing, with all the sections being added and detailed here as they are officially opened. We may also include information on those sections that are not yet open, and where there’s an existing footpath or even national trail, will include a relevant map.

For the latest news on each section of the England Coast Path, visit the official government site:  here

Each section of the England Coast Path will be detailed with a route map, photos and information of what to see and do along the way. This will include a totally free business directory and a beach guide.

We can’t wait for the official opening!!
