Lincolnshire

With miles of sandy beaches, a number of popular seaside resorts and wide open landscapes inland, there’s so much to see and do whilst staying at one of our caravan parks or holiday parks in Lincolnshire. Here’s our guide to the Top Ten Things To Do whilst on one of our caravan holidays in Lincolnshire.

1. Walk up Steep Hill, Lincoln

The two distinct parts of Lincoln are linked by Steep Hill which, as the name suggests, is a very steep hill in the heart of the city. The ‘Uphill’ historic area is dominated by the impressive cathedral, whilst the modern, traffic-free ‘Downhill’ has a good range of shopping as well as riverside bars and restaurants.

2. Take a drive down memory lane at the Bubble Car Museum

Microcars were all the rage in the 1960s, with leading car manufacturers, such as BMW, producing models. In Britain we had the Bond Bug, and perhaps the most famous bubble car of all – Del Boy’s Robin Reliant from Only Fools and Horses.

3. Cycle the Witham cycle route

The Water Rail Way is a new, path for both walkers and cyclists that will eventually connect Lincoln and Boston. At the moment it runs for nine miles alongside the River Witham from Bardney near Woodhall Spa to Lincoln, allowing you to cycle on a traffic-free route into the heart of the city.

4. See the seals close up at Donna Nook

Donna Nook is a seal watchers’ paradise as it boasts one of the largest and most accessible breeding colonies of grey seals in the UK. It offers a wonderful and rare opportunity to see wild seals with their newborn pups, at close range. For most of the year they disperse out to sea, however between October and December the seals come to breed near the dunes at Donna Nook.

5. Head back to nature at Gibraltar Point

Just three miles south of Skegness and in complete contrast, the Gibraltar Point National Nature Reserve is a three mile stretch of unspoilt coastal landscape sheltering important communities of plants and animals. The reserve is recognised internationally for its important habitats and species; more than a dozen different types of bird are known to frequent the varied landscape at different periods throughout the year.

6. Browse the antique shops of Horncastle for a hidden gem

Horncastle is a country market town of great charm. Situated on the banks of the Rivers Waring and Bain it has been dubbed ‘Best Antiques Town’, because of the dozens of antiques shops packed with curiosities and furniture from bygone ages to browse at your leisure.

7. Drop in for a pint at Batemans Brewery

Take an entertaining guided tour around the Victorian Brewhouse and the ‘Theatre of Beers’ where you will learn about the history of Batemans Brewery as well as the brewing process. Evening tours include two ½ pint samples of Batemans Beers from the well-stocked bar.

8. Walk the Viking Way across the Wolds

The Lincolnshire Wolds offer fantastic walking country – from open hilltops to sheltered valleys with hidden villages. There are footpaths, bridleways and quiet country lanes to explore. The Viking Way (the name reflects the strong Viking heritage of the area) is a long-distance footpath stretching from the Humber to Rutland, passing through the Wolds. There are plenty of circular walks taking in sections of the Viking Way,  

9. Taste a local Lincolnshire sausage

Lincolnshire is proud of its sausage, a coarsely textured pork sausage with sage flavouring. The genuine article is available across the county, especially in local butchers and is celebrated at an annual Sausage Festival in Lincoln. Sadly its distinct flavour and texture the Lincolnshire sausage has failed to be awarded European Protected Status, unlike Cornish pasties, Stilton cheese and Melton Mowbray pork pies.

10. Climb Boston Stump

Known affectionately as The Stump, the 272 foot high octagonal tower of Boston church, the tallest on any English parish church, can be seen for miles over the Fens, into parts of Norfolk and is a landmark for ships in the Wash. Visitors can climb the 365 steps to take in the panoramic view over the Fens and the Wash.
