About Hartsholme Country Park

The park even hosts regular events throughout the year, including frequent bird watching events that are free to attend, as well as children’s craft sessions during the school summer holidays.

How to get to Hartsholme Country Park

Hartsholme Country Park is located at the outskirts of Lincoln’s southwestern suburbs, around three miles away from the city centre. If you’re driving in to visit from elsewhere, you should follow signposted routes for Lincoln on the national motorway network, going as far as the A46 Lincoln Bypass. Use this to reach the Skellingthorpe Roundabout, then head down towards the park along the B1378 Skellingthorpe Road. If you’ll be needing public transport, you’re best travelling into central Lincoln before heading out from there. You can do this using the number six or number nine bus routes, which run from the centre to a stop that’s 200 metres from the park entrance. There’s also a railway station at Hyekham, which is around 35 minutes’ walk south of the park’s main hub.
