Things To Do In Lincolnshire
Just three miles from the centre of Lincoln lies an unlikely oasis. Home to a diverse selection of plant and animal life, Hartsholme Country Park was established as a protected area in 1974. Featuring a combination of beautiful natural and manmade features – including Victorian landscaped gardens, a reservoir, historic woodlands and grasslands – Hartsholme Country Park is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life. 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.

About 43 minutes from 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.
