Places of Interest in Lincolnshire17th June 2014
When you come to Tattershall Lakes to enjoy the vast array of family fun on offer, you’re getting more than just a peaceful setting in the delightful countryside of Lincolnshire. You are also holidaying in an integral part of Britain’s history and heritage. Lincolnshire, with over 2,000 years of history, is one of England’s truly most historic counties, and two millennia have bequeathed a staggering legacy of places of interest to families today.
First we should turn to the city of Lincoln, the historical and cultural centre of the county. Lincoln is a wonderland for history buffs, art fans, and anyone else looking for an enjoyable, affordable and memorable trip to one of England’s oldest cities. There’s Lincoln Castle, construction of which began back in 1068, and which attracts thousands upon thousands of visitors every year. Another claim to historical fame comes in the form of Lincoln being home to one of only four surviving copies of the Magna Carta. And for those interested in religious architecture, Lincoln’s famous cathedral, as well as churches like the Church of St. Mary Magdalene, offer a feast for the eyes.
Lincoln isn’t all about buildings, archives and historical museums. It also offers excellent outdoor options, such as the Arboretum. At the Arboretum, the family can enjoy blooming gardens, lakes, fountains, and there’s also an outdoor play area for the kids. It’s the perfect outdoor setting for families looking for a quiet break from the hustle and bustle of the city.
Skegness Carnival 10th – 15th August
Lincolnshire is home to some of England’s most famous and longest-standing seaside resorts, such as Skegness and Mablethorpe. These resorts, among others, have been enjoyed for generations of holiday goers looking to escape to a place they may have fun, take in the sea views, eat out and forget all their cares. Towns like Skegness offer nice hotels, good restaurants, amusement parks and, of course, the excellent golden beaches where kids can build sand castles, ride donkeys and enjoy the traditional fun that has become an inseparable part of the great British seaside holiday. The carnival this year will be a great gathering of lively people enjoying fabulous entertainment.
In short, Lincolnshire is a treasure trove of places of interest to suit all tastes. And where better to base oneself for their Lincolnshire Holiday than Tattershall Park, where after a long day out, one can return to relax in comfortable accommodation, enjoy a relaxing spa treatment, or laze by the lake fishing. It’s the perfect end to a perfect day in Lincolnshire.
