Lincolnshire is an amazing county with so much to see and do.

Lincs Out and About


The city of Lincoln is a mix of historic buildings like the Castle and the Cathedral and the new, modern buildings associated with the University.  There is a vibrant nightlife, with clubs and pubs and plenty of great places to eat, especially down by the Brayford.  In Lincoln, there are great places to shop from small independent shops in the Bailgate and on Steep Hill to the larger chain stores on the High Street and St Marks.

The Coast

Lincolnshire is also known for its variety of beaches from traditional seaside resorts like Skegness and Mablethorpe to the quiet beaches of Chapel Point and Huttoft car terrace.

Snipe Dales


If you want to experience the quieter side of Lincolnshire there are plenty of lovely places to go for a walk and get closer to nature either in the countryside of the Wolds or in one of the many nature reserves.

Historic Properties

There are impressive historic properties like Belton House, Tattershall Castle, Belvoir Castle and Burghley House

 If you like the sound of what Lincolnshire has to offer then my blog will help you stay up to date with what is going on in the county, with ideas for places to visit and things to do.   I enjoy walking so there will be some posts about walks in different parts of the county too.

I am a born and bred Lincolnshire Yellowbelly and I love Lincolnshire.  What better way to find out about a place than from a local, who has spent the last 30 years exploring all the hidden gems of Lincolnshire, some of the time with my 2 child and other times with my friends. So there will be something for everyone on the blog, things for families to do together whether the children are toddlers or teenagers.

Whatever you are interested in let me help you find fun things to do and great places to visit in this beautiful county of Lincolnshire, that I call home.
