A Bit Of Heritage
History abounds in the Fens. Come and see how they were made by paying a visit to The Pinchbeck Engine, a working drainage engine used to create the landscape of the Fens.
Travel at a sedate pace into yesteryear at the Gordon Boswell Romany Museum in Spalding. See original Romany caravans and experience what life was like on the open road.
For a bit of military history pay a visit to the South Lincolnshire Military Museum. Originally a private collection of military memorabilia, it is now open to the public.
For those who like their heritage a bit older then you must come and see the magnificent remains of Crowland Abbey. This centuries old relic was a major influence on the region's economy when the ancient monks held sway over the river trade.
For stage and screen visit the South Holland Centre, Spalding. Situated in the town centre, it provides a diverse range of arts and entertainment including theatre, dance, music, comedy and pantomime, with approximately 100 live performances and over 250 cinema screenings each year.
For family fun try out Laser Storm, Spalding, where the big kid in you can wage war in the purpose built laser fighting arena. (more...)
Or for the younger members of the family there is also Fun Farm, Spalding, a large indoor and outdoor adventure play facility with loads of fun things for the small ones. There is also a cafe and gift shop on site.
Alternatively, take it easy on the water with Maritime Leisure Cruises, operating out of Boston or Wisbech. Laze away on the river or explore The Wash, the choice is yours. (more...)
