A county of delight and discovery...

Lincolnshire at a glance Lincoln City: historical sites abounding, high quality museums and galleries alongside top class, quirky shopping, with a brilliant programme of events, specialist markets and fantastic night life. Coast: our best natural asset – miles of golden beaches – is only half the story. There are fun resorts for all the family, days out and trips galore, as well as quieter charms all along our coast. Lincolnshire Wolds: the highlands of Lincolnshire, and perfect country for walking, riding and spotting wildlife, plus lovely market towns such as Louth and Horncastle. Lincolnshire Fens: an ancient and enchanting waterland centred around the ancient town of Boston, with its famous ‘Stump’ tower, and the flower capital of England, Spalding. Lincolnshire Vales: a limestone landscape of green fields, stone towns such as Stamford, and magnificent stately homes including Grimsthorpe Castle, Burghley House and The National Trust's Belton House.

Come to Lincolnshire – it’s yours to discover...

What’s on offer Throughout Lincolnshire you’ll find perfect market towns, exceptional antiques, craft shops and galleries as well as fabulous local food and drink. Families will have a great time, with days out and attractions ranging from farm parks to theme parks. Lincolnshire also offers some particularly unique visitor attractions for aviation fans and golfers.

Contents As soon as you get to Lincolnshire, you’ll know it’s a special place. It’s a county that’s largely unspoilt, but with its own unique energy and atmosphere. It’s a place where thousands of years of history jostle with up to the minute excitement; where generations of holidaymakers come time and again, and welcome people who are just discovering our delights for themselves.

It’s a place where vibrant city life is a stone’s throw from the peace and pastoral beauty of rolling countryside and stately homes, or the wilderness of bird-crowded coast and estuary. Where there’s solitude you can escape to, just as much as there’s bustling market town life to dive into. Above all, what you discover of Lincolnshire will be shaped by what you decide to seek out…and that’s what this guide will help you to do. 2 | visitlincolnshire.com

Don Miss’t !

Natural Wonders... Seals – the Lincolnshire coast is a great location for seal-spotting in breeding season. Birds – watch hundreds of migratory and wading birds.

Coastal Family Fun

Bucket & Spade: Holiday’s Made... If there’s one thing we’ve got in spades on the Lincolnshire coast, it’s clean, family-friendly beaches. Summer holidays are made of this: golden sand to run about on or pat into sandcastles and shallow sea pools for paddling in. And you’re always in walking distance of an ice cream. What more could your children ask for?

Don Miss’t !

Pleasure Island in Cleethorpes has rides for the smallest children plus stomachchurning rollercoasters if you're feeling brave. Fantasy Island in Skegness also has family-friendly thrills, and terrifying whiteknuckle rides.

Once you've had your fill of thrills and spills, why not take a trip to an art gallery for a bit of coastal culture. Abbey Walk, an independent art gallery in Grimsby, is perfect for escaping the hustle and bustle. 14 | visitlincolnshire.com

Billy Butlin’s holiday dream... Billy Butlin recognised the family charm of Skegness over 75 years ago – which is why he chose Lincolnshire to open the first Butlins, in Skegness. It’s still a great place for a family holiday, with the subtropical Splash Waterworld and restaurants, sports and entertainment for everyone.

Essential Experiences Donkey rides are an unforgettable holiday treat. Cleethorpes' award winning Lollipop Express Land Train runs from Cleethorpes Pier down the length of the promenade to link with the Light Railway. Don't forget to indulge in some of our traditional seaside treats, with doughnuts, candy floss, ice cream, rock and fresh fish & chips there is something for everyone.

The chippy that Steel’s the show Steel’s Corner House in Cleethorpes has been serving up traditional fish & chips for over 30 years, and at frying time queues regularly stretch down the street. Owners Peter & Barbara Oliver reckon they get through around 100 tonnes of potatoes every year! visitlincolnshire.com | 15

The Natural Coast

Natural Charm... If you want to get away from it all and experience a special kind of coast, then let us lead you to some of the lesserknown locations along the Lincolnshire sands.

Mablethorpe’s Bathing Beauties beach huts are fabulous design icons, from giant framed mirrors to an old-fashioned camera obscura, all available to rent by the day. The Bathing Beauties Festival every September is a feast of beauty, culture, architecture and history.

Flying Visit

’t Don s! Mis The quiet coast at Sutton on Sea offers the very best of Lincolnshire beach life, but without the crowds. The beach is enormous, with a shallow gradient sloping down to the sea.

Essential Experiences Hundreds of beach huts line the promenade between Mablethorpe and Chapel St Leonards - you can rent one for under £30 a day.

Down by the Sea...

Anderby Creek offers a new perspective on the natural world – spend some peaceful time gazing upwards at the dedicated Cloud Viewing Platform.

Away from the traditional seaside bustle, there’s a very different kind of coast to discover – where the tourists have wings and fins. Lincolnshire's natural coast is well worth exploring so why not take a look at our Don't Miss list and make the most of your stay with us?

Rural Escapes

Take to the water Miles and miles of waterways that are heaven for boating and canoeing, especially around the Fens – which actually was water centuries ago. For cyclists and walkers, the Water Rail Way links Lincoln and Boston with 20 miles on off-road, riverside path alongside the Witham, and 13 miles on country roads.

Wrawby Post Mill is the only surviving post mill in the North of England

Water also means fish – and you’ll find plenty of opportunities for coarse fishing (and also some fly fishing for trout) on our rivers and lakes.

Escape to the Country... The Lincolnshire countryside is a vast natural wonderland of diverse landscapes, wild flora and fauna - and it’s yours to explore at close quarters via the network of byways and waterways that criss-cross the land.

Wolds

Getting to know the county – Lincolnshire Wolds, Fens, Vales and so much more...

Wonderful Wolds... The Lincolnshire Wolds are the highest area of land in eastern England, rising and plunging with greater drama than anywhere between Yorkshire and Kent. Lincolnshire is certainly not all flat…

Don Miss’t !

Follow the Trails

Take a gentle walk around valleys of clear streams, spinneys of beech and perfectly preserved stonebuilt towns. Miles of bridle path also make the Wolds popular with horse riders, and increasingly mountain bikers who relish the climbs and descents that are unique to this part of the county. Enjoy fine views from elevated vantage points, especially at Wolds Top, just north of Normanby-le-Wold.

Eastern Promise... Inland, stretching beyond the city of Lincoln, the county has an astonishing variety of landscapes and characters. To the north is a peaceful rural landscape dotted with market towns, and the beautiful rolling limestone of the Wolds – perfect walking country. To the south, the Vales stretch out with green fields and stone-built towns, and the Fens are criss-crossed with waterways that are paradise for boaters and anglers.

The epic Viking Way Runs the length of Lincolnshire, starting on the banks of the Humber, passing through the Wolds, and eventually ending at Rutland Water some 147 miles later.

Essential Experiences Thornton Abbey and Gatehouse in Northern Lincolnshire are among the finest in England and well worth a visit. Once you've explored the beautiful architectural ruins why not take a trip to nearby St Peter's Church and unlock the Buried Lives Exhibit?

Annual Highlights Get on your feet Each May the Wolds Walking Festival offers guided walks across the beautiful landscape, around its market towns, right up to the mighty Humber Bridge in the North.

Fens

Fabulous Fens...

Annual Highlights Flora and fauna

The Lincolnshire Fens is part of landscape that stretches across Cambridgeshire and Norfolk. It’s taken some 2,000 years to reclaim the land from the water, and it’s worth taking time to explore.

Discover Waterland

Spalding is the UK flower industry capital and hosts the Flower Festival and Parade each year, where carnival floats, a circus and lots of flower-themed attractions and entertainments set the town alight.

’t Don s! Mis

This year's event will be on 30th April.

The Wash is a vast, haunting estuary bereft of people but home to hundreds of species of birds and wildflowers all year round.

’t Don s! Mis

There are miles of tranquil waterways in The Fens for boaters, canoeists and walkers to explore, including a newly reopened stretch of the South Forty Foot Navigation at Boston. This restoration was the first step in the Fens Waterways Link – a project that will eventually see Lincolnshire connected to the national network of inland rivers and canals. Take a sailing trip out of Boston. As well as going out to sea the boats also cruise alongside the sandbanks for some seal-spotting. Wet a line in peaceful surroundings – there’s exceptional fishing for roach and bream, predatory pike and zander.

Astonishing Architecture

The winds blowing around Boston Stump are said to be caused by the struggle between the Devil and St Botolph, the Saxon saint who founded his monastery here in AD 654. The octagonal tower still resists the ‘breath of the devil’.

If your looking for entertainment then look no further than the South Holland Centre in Spalding. With a variety of live events and up to the minute cinema screenings there is everything you could want for a great night out in the Fens.

The Boston ‘Stump’ is a monument to the prosperous wool trade in the early 16th century – a 272-foot spireless tower visible from 20 miles away. Climb the 365 spiral steps to the top for an incredible view. Boston is the home of Puritanism, which eventually went to the New World in Massachusetts. But in 1607, some of the founding fathers were arrested as they tried to escape persecution fleeing to Holland – in the Guildhall you can see where they were tried and imprisoned.

Vales

Vibrant Vales...

Grimsthorpe Castle has a varied programme of events year-round, which has included balloon flights…

To the southwest of the county, the Vales are a limestone-rich landscape of green fields, perfectly preserved stone-built towns and monumental country houses that keep tourists, as well as filmmakers, coming back.

Don Miss’t !

Spend a day in town

Stamford’s stone townhouses, magnificent churches and ancient street plan led Sir Walter Scott to describe it as ‘the finest scene between London and Edinburgh’. Today it has plenty to offer in the way of boutiques, hotels and inns.

Annual Highlights A grand day out Every summer the Stamford Shakespeare Society performs a new repertoire in the grounds of nearby Tolethorpe Hall. With a picnic, it’s truly a midsummer night’s dream.

Country House Grandeur Grimsthorpe Castle has a magnificent art and craft collection plus thousands of acres of pasture and exquisite parkland to explore on foot or by bike. Burghley House is one of the grandest houses of the first Elizabethan Age. Inside, see the astonishing godly murals of the Heaven Room, before entering Hell Staircase through the giant gaping jaws of a cat! At Belton House you can get hands-on: dress up in Victorian clothing, walk the deer park and see the follies, and then set the children loose - Belton House has the National Trust's largest adventure playground.

To find out more about these and other stately homes across Lincolnshire visit www.hiddenengland.org

Capure Culture

As seen on TV...

The South of the county is a hive of cultural activity, with venues like Stamford Arts Centre and Guildhall Arts Centre in Grantham presenting an exciting programme of movies, live music, art, dance, comedy and theatre for all ages.

When film production units need a period house location, the Lincolnshire Vales’ stately homes are the first point of call. Belton House has been used in productions such as the BBC's Jane Eyre, Pride and Prejudice and Tom Jones. Burghley House was the backdrop for Elizabeth The Golden Age, The Da Vinci Code, and the 2006 Working Title adaptation of Pride and Prejudice starring Keira Knightley – as character Mr Collins put it, Burghley is "The most extraordinary sight in all Europe."

Historic Houses

The Grand Tradition...

’t Don s! Mis

At Grimsthorpe Castle you can hire a bicycle (with a tag-along bike if you have small children), take a picnic and explore ancient oak and chestnut avenues around the park. Normanby Hall Museum & Country Park has acres of woodland to explore, and you can see herds of majestic Red and Fallow Deer roaming across the park. Ayscoughfee Hall’s grounds feature a 300-year old Yew Tree Walk, an ornamental lake, peace garden and herb garden. Easton Walled Gardens are 12 acres of beautifully restored grounds, including formal gardens, woodland walks, meadows, and a cottage garden.

The award-winning Doddington Farm Shop and cafe - showcasing the very best Lincolnshire and home-grown Doddington produce.

Essential Experiences Gainsborough Old Hall has a permanent exhibition about the Christian Separatists who preached here, and eventually recruited supporters to set sail to America on the Mayflower in 1620. Grimsthorpe Castle has a magnificent collection of art, tapestries and fine furniture. Burghley House offers an extensive collection of furniture, porcelain and old masters’ paintings. Belton House’s stunning rooms are decorated in styles from many different eras, from Regency to 1930s. Ayscoughfee Hall’s Geest Gallery has a contemporary arts and crafts exhibition programme that changes monthly.

Fun for Kids... At Tattershall Castle you can enjoy an audio guide and costumes to dress up in to really bring the 15th century to life; outside, go and explore the moats and wildflower meadows. Belton House has many family-friendly events and trails to enjoy, plus a huge adventure playground where the kids can let off some steam.

Doddington Hall has never been sold since it was built in 1595 - it's still a family home, full of history and interest.

Every September the Burghley Estate hosts the Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials – it’s a feast of jumping, cross-country and dressage horsemanship. Normanby Hall Museum & Country Park is a treasure trove for families - The Regency Hall, Farming Museum and Victorian Walled Garden all give an authentic flavour of life in different eras. Epworth Old Rectory is an impressive grade I listed building set in beautiful gardens which will transport you back into early 18th century life.

Gardeners’ Nirvana US President Franklin D Roosevelt spent part of his honeymoon at Easton Walled Gardens and described them as ‘A dream of Nirvana… almost too good to be true.’ The 12 acres of gardens are at least 400 years old, and though abandoned in 1951 when Easton Hall was pulled down, they are now fully restored. You can explore formal gardens, a cottage garden, woodland walks, and even a pickery where you can pick flowers as inspiration for your own garden.

Family Fun

All Weather Wonders One of the tricks to a good family holiday, whatever the weather; plan a special day for you and your little ones! And in Lincolnshire there are plenty of venues and attractions that will ensure the kids have a happy holiday.

Map 02 : D6

For more information & discount vouchers at Lincolnshire’s Farm Attractions visit www.lincolnshirefarmattractions.com

Down on the farm... Farm parks such as Elsham Hall Country Park, Rand Farm Park, Rushmoor Country Park and Stickney Farm Park offer gentle interaction such as lamb and calf feeding and animal petting. Hardy’s Animal Farm near Skegness is a working family farm, where you can meet and feed farm animals, take a ride in a Shire horse-drawn cart - or even have a go in a mini tractor! At The Pink Pig near Scunthorpe children can explore a farm trail, meet piglets, lambs, goat kids and cows and navigate an amazing maze. Cleethorpes Jungle Zoo is home to a variety of parrots, toucans, lemurs, alligators, monkeys, meerkats and reptiles.

’t Don s! Mis

Essential Experiences At The Parrot Zoo you can try being a parrot keeper for the day, and the National Parrot Sanctuary is an equally colourful day out. Woodside Falconry & Conservation Centre has huge raptors that you can call in to land on your hand. Cosy up and watch a film at the Edwardian Kinema in the Woods at Woodhall Spa.

Real nature on the doorstep Lincolnshire is dotted with nature reserves managed by the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust, the RSPB, Butterfly Conservation and others. Some of the top sites are Whisby Nature Park (great for butterflies), Far Ings (a haven for water birds) and Snipe Dales (paradise for songbirds).

And if it rains... Grimsby’s Fishing Heritage Centre recreates the life of a fisherman, complete with a simulated boat trip with a deck that sways under the rough seas.

Lincolnshire has some of the best-kept lidos in the country Bourne Outdoor Swimming Pool is one of the biggest heated outdoor pools still open in the UK. There are other lovely lidos at Billinghay, Embassy Swimming Pool, Skegness, Jubilee Park in Woodhall Spa and Metheringham.

The Butterfly & Wildlife Park near Spalding has one of the UK’s biggest tropical houses and nature trails just for children. Indoor play - from adventure centres with ball pools and slides such as Pandas Palace or Fantasy World in Skegness, Playtowers in Cleethorpes, or Laser Storm in Spalding.

All aboard! The Lincolnshire Wolds Railway weaves through a beautiful part of the countryside between the Wolds and the coast. Part of the old Great Northern route from Boston to Grimsby is now running again, complete with steam locomotives and lovingly restored North Thoresby station.

Aviation

The Big Skies of Bomber County... Lincolnshire has a long association with aviation, being home to several airbases with great strategic importance – and today it has some of the best aviation attractions in Britain.

In 1943 Petwood House near Woodhall Spa was requisitioned by the RAF to become the officers' mess for the 'Dambusters'. Today the building is a hotel and the Squadron Bar is dedicated to this famous group of men.

Other aviation sites to visit... RAF Digby Ops Museum*

’t Don s! Mis Cranwell Aviation Heritage Centre Learn the history of the site from its early days as a Royal Naval Air Service base, and try your hand at landing an aircraft in the flight simulator. Resident aircraft: Jet Provost mk4

RAF Scampton is home to The Red Arrows, which for the first time has a female pilot – from Lincolnshire.

Essential Experiences

RAF Waddington Air Show

The Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre This base offers a real feel for the atmosphere of World War II, when the site was an active airbase for Bomber Command. Resident aircraft: Lancaster Bomber, Just Jane, is regularly brought out to taxi visitors up and down the original airfield – the only place in Europe where this is possible.

Each year more than 130,000 visitors enjoy the two day extravaganza of the RAF Waddington International Air Show, 3 miles south of the city of Lincoln. The largest of all RAF air shows offers a 2-day event that has become one of the country’s most popular military air shows, providing a truly unforgettable day’s entertainment for aviation enthusiasts and families alike.

The Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Visitor Centre At RAF Coningsby you can arrange a guided tour of exhibits telling the heroic stories of the base, and get within feet of lovingly maintained Battle of Britain Memorial Flight aircraft. Resident aircraft: Spitfires, Hurricanes and the world’s only flying Lancaster Bomber.

The Air Show includes a 7-hour flying display, over 100 aircraft on static display, 2 exhibition hangars, over 250 trade stalls, classic cars, funfair and many ‘hands-on’ exhibitions from all 3 Armed Forces. All profits are donated to RAF and local charities.

RAF Wickenby Memorial Collection Metheringham Airfield Visitors Centre RAF Scampton Historical Museum* Thorpe Camp Visitors Centre Grantham Museum RAF Waddington Historical Museum & Viewing Area* *These sites are operational RAF bases, so you will need to book your visit in advance.

For a great choice of coastal and parkland courses head straight to the north east of the county - the par 3's at Grimsby are some of the best in the area while 18 holes at Cleethorpes, Waltham Windmill or Immingham make for a great day away from the sea front.

Classic Courses Elsham Golf Club - a parkland gem in northern Lincolnshire, once the home course of Tony Jacklin. Seacroft - a challenging links course near Skegness - designed by former Open Champion Willie Fernie. More than half the holes remain as he designed them. Normanby Hall - recognised as one of the UK’s best municipal courses, is open to the public every day. Stoke Rochford - situated right beside the A1, this tranquil gem lies in the shadow of the impressive Stoke Rochford Hall. Woodhall Spa - with the revered Hotchkin course, one of the world's top 20 courses, this is also the home of the English Golf Union - the governing body of men's amateur golf.

Southview is another coastal gem – enjoy a swift 9-holes on the outskirts of Skegness and see if you can bag a birdie on the county’s only island green. Woodthorpe Hall golf is right on your doorstep when you stay in one of Woodthorpe Hall’s cottages or caravans.

Play and stay… De Vere Belton Woods near Grantham – this 4-star hotel offers 45-holes of outstanding golf and is home to the oldest PGA tournament in the world. Forest Pines Golf Resort is another 4-star venue in Lincolnshire – with an unusual 27-hole layout you have numerous choices allowing you to play a different loop every time. Greetham Valley – located just over the Lincolnshire border in Rutland, Greetham Valley has 2 superb 18-hole courses to choose from during your stay. Boston West – as one of the newest golf complexes in Lincolnshire make sure you watch out for the water – it comes into play on 11 of the 18-holes at this course.

Lincolnshire native and professional golfer Sophie Walker’s recommendations... “Forest Pines is one of the best combined hotel and golf courses I’ve ever seen. I love to play the links course right on the coast at Seacroft, and at Holme Hall in Scunthorpe. The course at Cleethorpes is also always in really good condition, and the members are very friendly to everyone – it’s a very sociable club.”

For a great choice of coastal and parkland courses head straight to the north east of the county - the par 3's at Grimsby are some of the best in the area while 18 holes at Cleethorpes, Waltham Windmill or Immingham make for a great day away from the sea front.

Classic Courses Elsham Golf Club - a parkland gem in northern Lincolnshire, once the home course of Tony Jacklin. Seacroft - a challenging links course near Skegness - designed by former Open Champion Willie Fernie. More than half the holes remain as he designed them. Normanby Hall - recognised as one of the UK’s best municipal courses, is open to the public every day. Stoke Rochford - situated right beside the A1, this tranquil gem lies in the shadow of the impressive Stoke Rochford Hall. Woodhall Spa - with the revered Hotchkin course, one of the world's top 20 courses, this is also the home of the English Golf Union - the governing body of men's amateur golf.

Southview is another coastal gem – enjoy a swift 9-holes on the outskirts of Skegness and see if you can bag a birdie on the county’s only island green. Woodthorpe Hall golf is right on your doorstep when you stay in one of Woodthorpe Hall’s cottages or caravans.

Play and stay… De Vere Belton Woods near Grantham – this 4-star hotel offers 45-holes of outstanding golf and is home to the oldest PGA tournament in the world. Forest Pines Golf Resort is another 4-star venue in Lincolnshire – with an unusual 27-hole layout you have numerous choices allowing you to play a different loop every time. Greetham Valley – located just over the Lincolnshire border in Rutland, Greetham Valley has 2 superb 18-hole courses to choose from during your stay. Boston West – as one of the newest golf complexes in Lincolnshire make sure you watch out for the water – it comes into play on 11 of the 18-holes at this course.

Lincolnshire native and professional golfer Sophie Walker’s recommendations... “Forest Pines is one of the best combined hotel and golf courses I’ve ever seen. I love to play the links course right on the coast at Seacroft, and at Holme Hall in Scunthorpe. The course at Cleethorpes is also always in really good condition, and the members are very friendly to everyone – it’s a very sociable club.”

County Culture

Bursting with culture & heritage

History up close Museums in Scunthorpe (the North Lincolnshire Museum), Stamford, Louth and Grantham give an insight into past lives and display a diverse collection of historical treasures and aretfacts. Dating back to 1390, Boston Guildhall is a historic monument to 600 years of time, including the story of where the Pilgrim Fathers were tried and imprisoned.

Miller’s tales Ellis Mill is the last working windmill in Lincoln, one of nine that used to line the hilltop ridge overlooking the city.

At Navigation House in Sleaford you can see how the county’s canals transformed trade and transport. St Mary's Guildhall in Lincoln gives you the chance to explore a thousand years of history in a building that has served as a coronation dining hall and a builder’s yard!

Heckington has a magnificent 8-sailed windmill to explore. Claythorpe and Cogglesford offer ancient water mills.

Whilst you're exploring the county don't forget to pay a visit to Epworth, a pretty little town which was once home to John and Charles Wesley, the founders of World Methodism.

At Sibsey, Alford, Mount Pleasant, Maud Foster and Waltham Mills you’ll find lovely cafés serving up bread and cakes from the (often organic) flour ground on-site. Wrawby Post Mill is well worth a visit during one of their open days.

Galleries Galore! The Hub in Sleaford is the UK’s largest craft and design centre, with galleries throughout the refurbished four-storey riverside warehouse. The Collection & Usher Art Gallery in Lincoln bring together Art and History to showcase the city’s finest archaeological finds as well as work by artists such as Turner, Lowry and even Grayson Perry. Ropewalk in Barton upon Humber has a great collection of contemporary ceramics, galleries, and studios including a public printmaking workshop. Abbey Walk Gallery is Grimsby's newest art venue featuring an exciting and diverse rolling programme of contemporary art.

Morris the merrier Lincolnshire has a very strong Folk tradition, and holds one of the few specific Morris music and dancing festivals in the country (3rd & 4th September 2011) and it’s growing every year. The key to the Morris is that anyone can have a go, and it’s really encouraged by the community here in Lincolnshire.

For something completely different, hitch a ride to see the wonderful collection of old buses at Trolleybus Museum at Sandtoft, or pay a visit to the Lincolnshire Road Transport Museum to see some of the county’s motoring heritage.

20-21 in Scunthorpe has five exhibition spaces for its contemporary visual arts programme. Gate Gallery in Grimsby is an exciting independent exhibition space which promotes the work of professional artists, many of whom live and work in the north east. Sam Scorer Gallery, which sits in the shadow of Lincoln Castle, has an exciting programme of exhibitions all year round. Spencer Coleman Fine Art Ltd have galleries in Lincoln, Stamford and London where you're sure to find that special piece to invest in.

For more information on culture in Lincolnshire visit www.thisisartlincs.org or find Lincolnshire One Venues on Facebook.

For a unique glimpse of real life as it was lived, Woodhall Spa Cottage Museum houses a fantastic collection of photography depicting everyday scenes in this county town. Even more intimate is Mrs Smith’s Cottage, a perfectly preserved private home in Navenby.

Getting here and getting around

Getting around Lincolnshire… By car A car gives you the convenience of exploring Lincolnshire at your own pace. The roads are generally quiet and offer some great views of the county – and the remoter places are well worth seeking out.

By bus Exploring Lincolnshire by bus is a great way to enjoy the county and reduce your carbon footprint. If you want to explore a bit further afield then Lincolnshire’s InterConnect services provide a great way to enjoy the rest of the county. Using Lincoln as a central hub you can easily get to and from Skegness, Grantham, Grimsby, Gainsborough, Scunthorpe and Boston. Along with this there are connecting services along the route allowing you to explore Lincolnshire without having to fill up.

Lincolnshire really is very straightforward to get to, with major motorway, rail and air connections, so there's no excuse for not discovering some of our hidden secrets in a short break in 2011.

There are lots of places to search for public transport in Lincolnshire. To find your perfect route visit www.lincsbus.info / www.lincsinterconnect.com / www.traveline.info Alternatively why not call Traveline on 0871 200 2233

By bicycle

Getting here…

Parts of Lincolnshire could almost have been made for cycle tours – particularly the southern parts of the county. There is an ever-expanding network of cycle lanes and routes across the county, including towpaths for leisurely rides, to cross-country bridleways for the more adventurously inclined. Visit www.sustrans.org.uk/sustrans-near-you/midlands/465 for routes and ideas.

By train

For more details... Go to visitlincolnshire.com

Regular services run from and to Lincoln Central station, with connections to cities such as London, Birmingham and Leeds.

By road Lincolnshire is connected to the motorway network via the A1 (connecting to the M25), and the M1, M62 and M180.

By air The nearest airports are Humberside International, Robin Hood Airport in Doncaster and East Midlands Airport, all of which operate National Express bus transfers to Lincoln.

By sea The most popular route to Lincolnshire from mainland Europe is by boat, and P&O Ferries run a service between Rotterdam/Zebrugge and Hull (just over an hour’s drive from Lincoln).
