Things to see and do in Lincolnshire
Lincoln is a beautiful little city packed with a range of interesting landmarks, including its castle and cathedral, as well as the Museum of Lincolnshire Life and the Drill Hall theatre and arts centre. Just outside the city centre, you’ll find Hartsholme Country Park, Doddington Hall, Whisby Nature Park and Fun Farm Lincoln, a large indoor family entertainment centre.
There’s plenty to keep you occupied across the county too, including the fun-filled Fantasy Island theme park with its rides and live shows. From historic sites and museums to beaches in places like Skegness and the seafront Gibraltar Point National Nature Reserve, the Snipe Dales and the Lincolnshire Wolds, there’s plenty to see come rain or shine.
Finding good schools is important if you have children, so you’ll be pleased to learn there are plenty of options across Lincolnshire. St Faith and St Martin Church of England Junior School is ranked as one of the best in the county. Meanwhile, Wibech’s Tydd St Mary CofE, Bourne Westfield Primary Academy and Cranwell Primary in Sleaford are all rated as outstanding by Ofsted.
If your kids are a little older, Caistor Grammar School in Market Rasen is seen as one of the best of Lincolnshire secondaries, rated as outstanding by Ofsted. Kesteven and Grantham Girls’ School, King’s School in Grantham and Lincoln’s Priory Academy also share this rating.
Lincolnshire transport links
As a large county which doesn’t have many densely populated towns or cities, having a car can be useful for getting around Lincolnshire. While there aren’t any motorways for you to use, there is a network of A roads connecting different parts of the county with each other.
There are still several public transport services you can make use of, including buses and trains. The council also offers community transport schemes to help people who are either vulnerable or isolated.
The Lincolnshire property scene
Its status as a large and predominantly rural county translates into more house for your money when it comes to the property market. The average house price in Lincolnshire is significantly lower than the national average, meaning you can pick up a spacious 4 bedroom detached house in Bourne for an impressive price.
Whether you want to live next to the scenic Apex Lake on the outskirts of Lincoln or in a contemporary 3 or 4 bed home close to the centre of Grantham, don’t forget to browse our latest offers to see how your money could work even harder for you. Meanwhile, our Part Exchange scheme could save you the expense of estate agent fees if you have a home you need to sell.
