Why visit Lincolnshire?

The Lincolnshire Wolds

Check out the chalk hills and claylands in England's loftiest part between Kent and Yorkshire when staying at campsites in Lincolnshire. The long-distance Viking Way cuts through this 216-square-metre Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, leading from tiny Rutland to the huge Humber Bridge. Nature reserves and Sites of Special Scientific Interest – parcels of land that are far from the bright lights of cities for dark-sky camping – are sprinkled around too. 

Stellar seaside resorts

To the east of the Wolds, select from seaside resorts like Skegness, Mablethorpe and Cleethorpes for a beachside break. These are the county's three main coastal settlements, each with a different feel. Want to fly high on fairground rides at Fantasy Island? Set off for Skegness. Rather rest on golden sands? Mosey around Mablethorpe (or the scenic Sutton on Sea). Fancy travelling on a traditional light railway? Cleethorpes is for you. 

Fabulous food

Traditional British grub is on the table while camping in Lincolnshire; when on holiday in the home of the sausage, sampling locally made pork products is a must. Lincolnshire poacher cheese is another tasty treat to try, along with plum bread – a type of currant-stuffed loaf. Find these culinary delights at food markets in towns such as Alford (on Tuesdays and Fridays), Boston (the third Wednesday of the month), Bourne (Thursdays and Saturdays) and Spalding (the first Saturday of each month).

Delve deeper into Lincolnshire 

Heaps of history 

You can learn about Lincolnshire’s archaeology and art at The Collection museum and gallery in Lincoln, the capital of the county, before catching a concert at the cracking cathedral. This building – formerly the world’s tallest – also houses a copy of the Magna Carta, the foundation text of modern democracy. The Museum of Lincoln Life is where the first ever tank was dreamt up, while the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre delves into WW2 history on the site of an old airfield.

Grand gardens and country parks

Discover how the county’s elite lived at the elegant Elsham Gardens before breathing in sweet scents at the Springtime Cherry Blossom just outside Doddington Hall. In Spilsby’s Gunby Gardens, you can wander among wildflowers or find a peaceful walled area to yourself. Woolsthorpe Manor, meanwhile, still has the original 400-year-old tree that dropped an apple on Sir Isaac Newton’s head, triggering his scientific theories about gravity. 

Animal attractions

Avid animal fan? Meet retired beasts of burden at Radcliffe Donkey Sanctuary or get up close and personal with birds of prey at Rushmoor Farm Park and Falconry Centre. To catch a glimpse of various winged species out in the wild, head to the fenlands while camping in Lincolnshire or the coastal Gibraltar Point nature reserve. As well as being a habitat for birds, Donna Nook also has a sizable colony of grey seals.
