What to See in the Lincolnshire Wolds: Our Guide
In this guide, we’re exploring some of the highlights of the Lincolnshire Wolds. An Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, the Wolds are a range of low-lying hills that stretch between the Humber Estuary and the Lincolnshire fens. Situated in a predominantly flat landscape, they offer unspoilt views of the Great British countryside.
If you’re thinking of moving to the Wolds or visiting, we’re listing some of the top attractions to enjoy – besides walking on the hills. Covering around 216 square miles, the Wolds are home to a plethora of charming villages and towns nestled within the hills. We’re highlighting some of the finest in our guide on what to see in the Lincolnshire Wolds.
Enjoy food in Louth
If you’re a food lover, Louth is certainly a town you should add to your bucket list. Home to award-winning food shops, including a butcher, greengrocers and cheese shop, there are also plenty of food markets to enjoy. The town is a favourite of the Hairy Bikers’ Dave Myers.
If you fancy some literary tourism, you can follow in the footsteps of one of England’s great poets, Lord Tennyson. The walk takes you through the villages of Somersby and Tetford where he grew up. You can end at the poet’s local pub, the 16th-century White Hart Inn.
Visit Tattershall Castle
Surrounded by miles of open countryside, the small village of Tattershall is home to Tattershall Castle, an impressive and unique red brick castle built by Ralph Cromwell.
Visit Gibraltar Point
The Wolds are just a stone’s throw away from the coast. Gibraltar Point, near to the popular seaside retreat of Skegness, is a beautiful stretch of unspoiled coastline. Visit Donna Nook National Nature Reserve between November and December and you can see hundreds of grey seals come ashore to give birth to their pups near the sand dunes.
