From Thursday 7th to Sunday 10th December 2017 Lincoln’s Cathedral Quarter will be taken over by stalls, entertainers and seasonal themes for four days of festive entertainment and shopping at the famous Lincoln Christmas Market.

There is always a wonderfully festive atmosphere throughout the whole market site where more than 280 stalls spread out around Lincoln Castle, Cathedral and lots of other stunning venues and decorated streets.

The market has something for everyone: familiar, comforting and exotic food and drinks, rare gifts and lots of entertainment for all family members. Wonderful aromas fill the air: mulled wine and freshly cooked food, the sounds of entertainment spread across the city, and the sights of this market in this stunning, historic city are really something special to experience.

If you are staying at Rural Roosts during this time, make sure you take a visit to Lincoln City to take advantage of the fantastic Christmas Market   We still have a couple of lodges available for this year or if you would like to visit next year, book now to ensure you have a superb retreat to relax in after the exciting hustle and bustle of the city, Rural Roosts is the perfect relaxing antidote to a day of shopping and sightseeing.
