Great for Kids

Take a ride on a steam train and enjoy the nostalgia of times gone by.
If you enjoy fresh air, space and tranquillity, try hiking along the Viking Way, or strolling along the inspiring Tennyson Trail. Whatever type of walking challenge you prefer, there is a huge choice of walking trails, paths and routes to explore.
You could hire a bike and go cycling (or walking if you prefer) along one of the towpaths, trails and circular routes criss-crossing Lincolnshire's waterways network - or why not spend the day sailing?
Linconshire has some of the finest fishing waters in England, both for novice and experienced anglers, and if you enjoy a round of golf Lincolnshire has over 50 golf courses to choose from.
During the Second World War Lincolnshire was known as 'Bomber County' because of the number of bomber bases dotted around the flatter countryside - perfect landscapes for the RAF and its allied comrades.
It's a rich heritage still very much alive today with Lincolnshire home to many wartime museums and living memorials as well as the current home to the RAF's famous Red Arrows display team.
Bring those days to life in a thrilling way at the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre where you can experience the sights, smells and sounds of a real Bomber Command airfield - and even get the chance to taxi down the runway in a Lancaster Bomber.
