Lincolnshire is an inspiring short break destination in the UK with hundreds of fantastic ideas for great family holidays, romantic weekends away, activity breaks and fun days out. From the iconic towers of Lincoln Cathedral to the beautiful stone town of Stamford, the rolling Lincolnshire Wolds to the breathtaking Skegness coastline, Lincolnshire is a county of outstanding natural beauty and a perfect place to visit.
Choose from blue-flag beaches and candy floss on the coast, rolling hills and quaint tea rooms in the Wolds or stunning history and superb shopping in the City of Lincoln and Lincoln Castle, built in the 11th century. Walk the castle walls, or visit the Victorian prison or nearby Lincoln Cathedral, where you can 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.
From stone castles to sand castles – during the summer, why not travel to one of Lincolnshire's famous seaside resorts? There’s the classic candyfloss and amusements of Skegness or Cleethorpes, or quieter picnicking spots like Sutton-on-Sea. South of ‘Skeggy’ is Gibraltar Point, a renowned nature reserve, teeming with birdlife.
