Christmas Getaways in Lincolnshire19th November 2015
Some of us may not want to think about it just yet, but Christmas is just around the corner and it’s a great time to think about a little winter getaway to Lincolnshire! Tattershall Lakes Country Park has already closed its own facilities. But, we still have some great accommodation deals in the winter months, and we are, of course, still surrounded by some of the counties best local attractions that both remain open, and also promise an unforgettable break for you and your family.
If you’ve been with us at Tattershall before, you may well have visited Tattershall Castle. So, if you head a little further out to Belton, near Grantham, then you can find another of the county’s most prestigious and historic stately homes – Belton House. This stunning building and grounds are operated by the National Trust, and act as a museum, family activity centre, seasons event venue and much more. Visit their website to see their list of winter activities, including Christmas-themed tours, caroling, winter trails and a visit from Father Christmas himself!
When Christmas is nigh, and you’re in Lincolnshire, you couldn’t possibly miss out on Lincoln’s amazing season of festive events. The city will have its annual Christmas Light Switch on, on November 19th starting at 5:00pm. Later in November there will be a Reindeer Display (November 26th, 2:30pm at St. Marks Shopping Centre), a Food and Gift Fair (November 28th and 29th, 10:00am to 4:00pm at Lincolnshire Showground), and so much more. Of course we must mention their wonderful Christmas Market, which happens on December 3rd all day in the Cathedral Quarter. Check out Visit Lincoln for more information.
Your stay doesn’t have to be about Christmas every single day, so you might want to consider the county’s premier wildlife attraction, The Parrot Zoo. It’s open every day from 10:00am to 4:00pm until Christmas, and features the largest collection of parrots in the UK, as well as ranges of reptiles and mammals. If one of your young ones is having a birthday while you’re in Lincolnshire, the Parrot Zoo also do kids parties!
