Lincolnshire is a wonderful mix of the old and the new, busy communities, quiet countryside and sweeping coastline.

Its central city, Lincoln, boasts an elegant cathedral and Norman castle, cobbled streets and colourful markets.

An improved road system has made Lincoln more accessible than ever and sparked new investment, major development and employment opportunities. The city’s Masterplan builds on this, outlining a 30-year plan to further regenerate the city centre, bringing benefits to businesses and the local community.

The county has always been a popular place to live. Lincoln is a very attractive city, while historic market towns like Boston, Grantham, Stamford, Louth, Sleaford and Gainsborough offer strong public services in a traditional setting. The countryside is full of charming villages, and the coast combines quiet locations with bustling seaside towns like Skegness.

Wherever you choose to live and work, housing is affordable and the economy is truly thriving.
