The quaint market town of Spilsby is full of history and charm makes it the perfect place for visitors

Although one of the smaller market towns in the area, don't be deceived as there's much to do in and around Spilsby. From discovering more about the famous Arctic explorer, Sir John Franklin, to visiting the magnificent Gunby Hall or St James' Parish Church, catching a play at Spilsby Theatre, or stepping back in time at the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre.

Enjoy a stroll around the stone streets that have changed very little since the beginning of the 19th century.

For those who want to explore a little more, why not visit St James' Parish Church. Displaying valuables from the Willoughby de Eresby family, who used to own the entire town of Spilsby, before their home, Eresby Hall, burnt down in 1796.

After spending a day exploring, take a well-earned rest at Spilsby Theatre. Set in a fabulous Grade II listed building; the Theatre runs many plays and evening events. The beautiful neighbouring village of Somersby was once home to the Poet Alfred, Lord, Tennyson.

Gunby Hall is a must for any history enthusiast with impressive walled gardens and a wood panelled music room, run and owned by the National Trust.

Located only a few miles outside of Spilsby is the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre. The museum is home to one of the rare Avro Lancaster Bombers, ‘Just Jane’, and is a memorial to the 55,500 troops from Bomber Command who lost their lives during World War II.
