It is within a very close proximity of the Skegness seafront, situated between North Parade to the east and Park Avenue to the west, and would suit a variety of alternative uses.

It has been described as an exciting investment opportunity due to the huge amounts of tourism in Skegness. It is a sector estimated to be worth around £699 million, making it the fourth most popular tourist resort in the UK by visitor numbers.

The town hall was constructed in 1926 to the design of William Henry Ansell, built with red brick and stone dressings, and an extension from the second half of the 20th century adjoins the west side of the west pavilion.

It was converted to use as a town hall in 1964, and the rooms within the building have been largely been used as offices for East Lindsey District Council, adapted and modernised to fit purpose.

Potential buyers have until April 29 to submit offers. | Photo: Lambert Smith Hampton
