Lincoln is Closer Than You Think

Travelling to and getting around Lincoln city and countryside


Once you have arrived in the city, travelling around is easy. The city is small and compact enough to explore on foot however you can hop aboard the Walk and Ride bus to get around even easier.

Lincoln is closer than you think and easily accessible by car, by bus or by train. See below for more details about travelling to and around the city of Lincoln.

If travelling by road, you can check for live traffic disruptions on the BBC's website, and current and planned road improvement works that may affect your journey on the Lincolnshire Roadworks website.

Please be aware that a major redevelopment scheme is currently underway to provide a state-of-the-art bus station and 1,000-space multi-storey car park in the city centre.

Also in development are improvements to Lincoln Central railway station and the creation of a pedestrianised plaza in St Mary’s Street, connecting the bus and rail stations.

Construction could be complete by February 2018. You can find out more on the City of Lincoln Council website, including road closures and diversions.
