Things To Do In Lincolnshire
Unassumingly hidden on the outskirts of Lincoln, Whisby Nature Park has bloomed since its days as a sand and gravel quarry. Where heavy machinery once roamed, trees now blossom and birdsong fills the air. As nature has reclaimed this once industrious landscape, it’s become an unlikely oasis for both plant and animal life, and one which you’re more than welcome to experience for yourself with a stroll around Whisby’s lakes.
Moor Lane, Thorpe on the Hill, Lincoln LN6 9BW
About 42 minutes from park
You should be able to find Whisby Nature Park easily, as it’s just to the south western outskirts of Lincoln along the A46 road. If you’re driving in from the south, you’ll want to take the A46 in the opposite direction towards Lincoln, while those approaching from the north can follow the A1 (M) into the A1 road and depart onto the A46 just as you approach Newark-on-Trent. For those using public transport, Hykeham Railway Station is a short distance from Whisby Nature Park, and is served by trains from places like Grimsby, Leicester, Nottingham and Peterborough. It’s a 50 minute walk or five minute drive from the railway station to the park’s entrance. As for buses, there is a stop in the village of Thorpe on the Hill, a few minutes’ walk south of the park’s main entrance. The stop is served by the 16 Simplibus route, which loops from central Lincoln to this area and back again.
