Stamford is situated in the extreme south of Lincolnshire, just off the A1, about 90 miles from Central London. It is easy to reach by car; in addition to the A1, the A14 East/West link crosses the A1 only a few miles south of Stamford, as does the A47 with connections to Leicester and beyond. The town lies on the Birmingham to Cambridge/Stansted Airport train line, Peterborough, with its East Coast line connections to the south and north is only 15 minutes away by train.
The Tourist Information Centre in St. Mary’s Street can provide detailed information on places to stay, to eat (there are lots of good coffee shops and restaurants!) and places to visit.
