Why go?

Whether you are looking for a stay at the seaside or a cultural city visit, we compare prices on the best Lincolnshire accommodation...

A predominantly rural county, there are a number of large towns such as Lincoln, Skegness, Grimsby and Spalding in Lincolnshire. There is also a host of attractive small villages nestling in the Lincolnshire countryside, so there are a variety of hotels in Lincolnshire to choose from when booking accommodation.

Lincoln Cathedral can be seen for miles around and is the most prominent landmark in the city. Climbing the Bishops Palace gatehouse tower gives you a panoramic view of the cathedral, city and surrounding countryside. Lincoln Castle, built more than 900 years ago, houses one of the few remaining original copies of the Magna Carta.

If you are feeling brave, you will find ghost walks at Brigg, Epworth or Barton. These ghost tours are all based on true, but sometimes gruesome, events in the local area.

There are plenty of family-friendly attractions in the county, such as Normanby Hall Museum & Country Park near Scunthorpe. The attraction boasts parkland to explore, gardens with colourful borders to enjoy, a Farm Museum and a deer park as well as an adventure playground for the children. Visitors can also see The Natural World Centre & Little Darters Wildlife Adventure Area, just outside Lincoln. It's a natural play area for children from aged two right up to 16, and there's also an exhibition area and cafe. 

There is plenty for nature lovers in Skegness, such as the Natureland Seal Sanctuary, a seal rescue centre for orphan and injured seals. Alternatively, there is the Butterfly and Wildlife Park at Spalding. The park has a very large Tropical House, where you're surrounded by exotic trees and plants and colourful butterflies. There is also a wide range of other wildlife to see such as fish, snakes and iguanas.

Whilst visiting Lincolnshire, don't forget to try some of the regional specialities. Lincolnshire sausages may be one of the first delicacies to spring to mind, but there is also haslet, Grantham gingerbread and award-winning Lincolnshire Poacher cheese. Many Lincolnshire hotels make use of local produce in their hotel restaurants.
