Park & ride

There is no parking in the vicinity of the Christmas Market so all cars should use the dedicated Christmas Market Park and Ride service which operates from the Lincolnshire Showground on the A15 just north of Lincoln.

The park and ride site will be well sign posted on all approach roads and for those using a sat nav the postcode is LN1 2ZF (but please remember to follow directions/signs when approaching the venue). There is also a dedicated service for people with disabilities, using specially adapted vehicles which also runs from the showground.

All buses drop off close to the Museum of Lincolnshire Life.

LNER Special Christmas Market Trains

A Special Lincoln Christmas Market Timetable has been announced by LNER which will see 9-coach Azuma trains stop at Lincoln Station on their way to and from London King’s Cross.

Complementing the rail services will be direct replacement coaches between Lincoln and Peterborough with a separate coach service linking Grantham, Newark North Gate and Retford. East Midlands Railway (EMR) will also be running its services to/from Lincoln on the Saturday as these are unaffected by the engineering work.

This event will be going ahead subject to government guidelines.
