North of Lincoln

North of of Lincoln you'll find a wealth of lovely villages surrounded by countryside and the three market towns of Gainsborough, Caistor, and Market Rasen.

The countryside north of Lincoln has rich aviation heritage, and a trail is available for those interested in the history of flight in the district. Contact the West Lindsey Tourism Team or call 01427 676666 for a copy of the aviation brochure.

The district is home to the famous ‘Red Arrows’, the RAF’s aerobatic team, who are based at RAF Scampton - where the famous Dambuster raid squadron were stationed.

GAINSBOROUGH

A 30 minute drive from Lincoln on the banks of the River Trent and on the most westerly edge of Lincolnshire, bordering Nottinghamshire.

The town boasts a fantastic Medieval manor, Gainsborough Old Hall, which is a must-see for history hunters. Thriving markets are held in Gainsborough town centre and, in the award winning shopping centre Marshall’s Yard, there is a regular Farmers’ Market.
