A journey by car to Lincoln makes an enjoyable part of your visit as you pass through pretty market towns and villages.
Lincoln Park & Ride runs Monday - Saturday from Waitrose on Searby Road, Lincoln, LN2 4DS, with a bus provided every 15 minutes from 7am (8am on Saturday) with the last return bus departing at 6:20pm (services at peak times early and late in the day may vary).
Local people within walking distance of the stop will also be able to use the service to and from Lincoln Waitrose, the city centre and Cathedral Quarter for the same fare. You don’t have to Park to benefit from this service.

The team at Treasure Trails have created a great way to keep the kids (and the big kids) entertained and excited on your car journey to Lincoln.
Print off the (not so accurate!) road map of Lincoln below, colour in the cars (a mix of whichever colours you like), and then move along the map as you spot cars with those colours on your actual journey to try to be the first to get to the finish line.
Full instructions and rule are on the Treasure Trails website.
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.
