Things to do: Camping in Lincolnshire
With a diverse array of places to visit and things to do, camping in Lincolnshire is the perfect choice whether you are looking for a family holiday, romantic weekend, activity break or fun day out. With a cobbled cathedral city and a sprawling Area of Natural Beauty, Lincolnshire is an ideal location for your next camping trip.
Steeped in fascinating history dating back over 2000 years, Lincoln lies beside the winding River Witham at the heart of this diverse county. With an impressive Norman castle, awe-inspiring gothic cathedral, medieval houses, museums and gardens, Lincoln is an ideal location to spend a day on your next camping trip.
Officially the tallest building in the world for over 238 years, surpassing the Great Pyramid of Giza, Lincoln Cathedral was built in the 11th century and soars above the historic city below. Marvel at the sheer size of this breath-taking structure and its Early Gothic architectural features. Uncover one of the four remaining copies of the Magna Carta in the l library designed by acclaimed architect, Sir Christopher Wren.
Constructed in Lincoln during the late 11th century by William the Conqueror, Lincoln Castle offers an exclusive insight into Lincolnshire’s fascinating history. Built on the site of a pre-existing Roman fortress, Lincoln Castle is one of two fortresses in the castle to have two mottes. Take a wander around the great stone curtain wall, offering panoramic views of Lincoln and the cathedral that towers above it.
Exhibiting an insight into the local commercial, domestic, agricultural, and industrial communities, the Museum of Lincolnshire Life celebrates the county’s diverse culture and is home to over 250,000 unique objects and artefacts. Established in 1969, the museum is free to the public and tells the story of the Royal Lincolnshire Regiment and Lincolnshire Yeomanry.
Situated a short distance east of Lincoln, inland from the coastline, the Lincolnshire Wolds is a unique range of hills dotted with pretty villages surrounded by rolling fields and sprawling countryside. Officially designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in 1973, the Wolds covers over 560 square kilometres of rural Lincolnshire.
With various walking paths and the annual Lincolnshire Wolds Walking Festival, the Wolds draws hundreds of keen hikers each year. Usually held in May and June, the local walking festival offers 16 days of exploration through this tranquil part of the East Midlands. With walks ranging from 1 to 17 miles, there is a walking route for all ages and abilities.
Located on the eastern edge of the Lincolnshire Wolds, the bustling Georgian market town of Louth is one of the country’s most attractive towns. Labelled a “food mecca” by revered TV chefs The Hairy Bikers, Louth has become a beloved foodie hot-spot due to its weekly markets exhibiting some of Lincolnshire’s finest produce.
Nestled between River Bain and River Waring, Horncastle is a thriving Lincolnshire town brimming with antique shops, award-winning coffee houses, gourmet restaurants and cosy pubs. Explore the charming Church of St Mary, dating back to 1250 and thought to have once been a Saxon Minster.
