10 Things To Do in Lincolnshire For Kids

If you’re stuck for ideas about where to go to keep your children happy and entertained, then our 10 Things To Do In Lincolnshire For Kids guide is here to help. 

Our guide has been specially tailored to include educational, outdoor and physical suggestions. Read our 10 suggestions below!

1. Lincolnshire Wolds Railway

If your children love trains, then treat them to a ride on an old-fashioned steam train.

The Lincolnshire Wolds Railway is located at Ludborough and runs through the picturesque Lincolnshire Wolds (a Designated Area of Outstanding Beauty).

There is also a railway museum and The Steaming Kettle Cafe which serves delicious home-made food.

2. Bransby Horses

Bransby Horses is a rescue centre for horses and donkeys, situated in lovely countryside less than 10 miles from Lincoln.

It is home to over 340 horses, ponies, mules and donkeys, while they have also helped over 500 equines into foster homes. It is an inspirational place to visit!

There is a café, gift shop, picnic and play area on site.

Admission is free, but Bransby Horses is a charity and is therefore totally reliant upon donations for its upkeep.

3. Woodside Wildlife & Falconry Park

Woodside Wildlife & Falconry Park has birds of prey, monkeys, white wolves, reptiles and even racing pigs! But, of course, one of the most impressive sights is the park’s beautiful tigers.

The latest inhabitants are a pair of tigers who have been given a new home at Woodside after being rescued from a circus.

With indoor and outdoor play areas and Tea Rooms, it’s the perfect destination for the whole family.

4. Hall Farm Park

Hall Farm Park at South Kelsey describes itself as a ‘fun-filled farming experience’.

With animals, tractor rides, go-carts, play barns, nature walks, a café and lots more, it’s not surprising that it has won so many tourism awards.

5. Fantasy Island

Fantasy Island is a family theme park in Ingoldmells on the coast and offers a number of rides and attractions for the whole family.

There are 14 rides in the Discovery area for adrenaline junkies, 11 in the Adventurer area and 7 for the Little Explorers, meaning there is something for everyone.

You can also try out the go karts, adventure gold, bowling, arcade and so much more!

6. Rand Farm Park

Rand Farm Park is a great day out if you have small children.

This working farm, located on the A158 near Wragby, has lots of animals which you can touch, cuddle and feed.

There is a large indoor play area (useful if the weather isn’t too brilliant), as well as outdoor play areas, tractor rides and an excellent tea room.

7. Natureland Seal Sanctuary

Natureland Seal Sanctuary in Skegness rescues and rehabilitates orphaned and injured seals.

As well as the seals, it is home to penguins, meercats, a tropical house, an aquarium and Pet’s Corner, as well as a café and a shop.

It’s well worth a visit for the seals alone.

8. Elsham Hall Gardens & Country Park

Elsham Hall Gardens & Country Park near Brigg has spectacular gardens, an adventure playground, animal farm and working blacksmith, cafe and gift shop.

It is a fantastic place to explore, have a picnic, and take a walk.

The award-winning gardens and country park are popular with young and old alike.

9. Wild Pines Park

Wild Pines Park, a high ropes course located in the beautiful Linwood Woods just outside Market Rasen, has been operating for nearly 20 years and has a variety of rope assault courses with varying degrees of difficulty.

Suitable for ages 6 to adult.

If heights are not your thing, then archery courses are available.

10. Tallington Lakes

Tallington Lakes – a leisure park and outdoor activity centre near Stamford, is just perfect for older kids (and their parents!).

It offers water skiing, jet skiing, dinghy sailing, canoeing, off-road carting, dry slope skiing and a climbing tower among its many activities! Phew!

We hope that our 10 Things To Do In Lincolnshire For Kids guide has helped you to discover some great days out. Enjoy!
