Lincolnshire is a lovely varied County. We have the beautiful city of Lincoln with its Cathedral and the old streets as well as modern areas and the Brayford Pool, the towns of Boston, Spalding and Stamford plus the lovely market towns in the Wolds of Louth and Horncastle with all its Antique shops. Lincoln's Bailgate area has a selection of boutiques clothes shops and jewellery stores.
The shopping in Lincolnshire ranges from some of the UK’s very best antique dealers and markets, speciality food hotspots, craft outlets, quaint fashion boutiques, garden centres and sportswear – and the quality stretches right across the county.
It's very hard to go home empty-handed!
If you want to get up, out and about, you couldn’t have picked a better county to explore. Lincolnshire has a wealth of diverse attractions to tickle the fancy of a wide range of visitors, whether young or old.
If climbing, canoeing, quad-biking, cycling, paint-balling and theme parks sound too energetic, you can soak up some history at a slower pace.
Firstly, Lincoln Castle, built in the 11th century: walk the castle walls, visit the Victorian prison…and nearby is Lincoln Cathedral, where you can visit the "Young Victoria" exhibition or play the game of looking for the naughty Lincoln Imp, within the beautiful carved walls of the Angel Choir.
The National Trust property Tattershall Castle offers the chance to visit a dramatic 15th century tower with a moat, while the romantic Belvoir Castle is set in rolling countryside and home to the Duke and Duchess of Rutland. A pub lunch in one of the villages nearby makes for a perfect please-everybody excursion.
For more incredible architecture, 17th century Belton House in Grantham and the Elizabethan mansion of Burghley House at Stamford are both must-sees.
From stone castles to sand castles – during the summer, why not travel to one of our famous seaside resorts? Along a 50 mile stretch of unspoilt coastline, there’s the classic candyfloss and amusements of Skegness, Mablethorpe or Cleethorpes, or quieter picnicking spots like Sutton-on-Sea.
South of ‘Skeggy’ is Gibraltar Point, a renowned nature reserve, teeming with birdlife. In a northerly direction from North Somercotes there is Donna Nook nature reserve, a breeding ground for seals which is open to the public.
For those that like to be beside the water Lincolnshire boasts a huge network of rivers, canals and drains. Whether you fancy a stroll along a riverside scene or an afternoon of boating, Lincolnshire's waterways will be sure to fill your day with fun and fresh air.
Lincolnshire Area BCC hold many rallies throughout the year plus five day meets and holiday meets near the coast. We also have our annual dinner dance and New Year meet and would always welcome any new members.
