Things to do

We have always believed that the key to a good holiday is the ability to relax.

We have always adopted the philosophy that holidays are for the whole family, for the whole group, not just the person with special needs.

To help you with your Holiday planning we have put together a list of local things to do with travel times, contact details fees and everything else you might need. 

However as parents ourselves, we know how important it is to be realistic.

Not all the mainstream facilities can be accessed easily by those in your care.

In some instances it is simply not worth trying to stretch the boundaries too far.

Set the bar low and make sure you can get over it is sometimes the best strategy for a successful holiday!

We hope that Thomas Centre will encourage the whole family, the whole group to relax, and to recharge batteries.

For these reasons, we have put together lots of facilities on site and there is no obligation go off site during your stay here.

Here is a small sample of some of the resources in our neighbourhood.

We are in the heart of the Lincolnshire tourist region and there is lots to see and do.

No mega attractions here such as Thorpe Park etc.

However, we have an excellent variety of local attractions, to enjoy at a leisurely Lincolnshire pace!

Atlantic (Grey) Seals

Our nearest coastal area is Donna Nook, now famous for one of the largest seal colonies in the UK. Last year over 1,200 seal cubs were born on the beech in the period end of October to the end of December .

Nature Reserves

Natural history abounds in this region, with lots of local nature trails, plenty of fishing and endless opportunities for bird watchers on our coastal paths. The largest in our area occupies over 5 miles of coast line and covers a huge area in land.

RAF Interest

For aviation lovers we have lots of interest in this region with the popular WW2 museum at RAF Scampton and the Heritage Centre at East Kirby, home to the ever popular Lancaster Bombers.

 The Thomas Centre is very close to the popular Lincolnshire coast and is situated just 5 miles (as the crow flies) from the beeches at Donna Nook.

To the north, just 10 miles away we have the Lincolnshire beaches of Cleethorpes and to the south we have the long flat sandy beaches of  Theddlethorpe, Sandilands, Sutton-on Sea, Mablethorpe and Skegness.
