    We’ll have a fantastic time on our holiday to Lincoln, and from our base in the picturesque town of Grantham we’ll be ideally placed for enjoying our two included excursions. Our first will allow us to experience a true taste of Leicestershire, as we visit Melton Mowbray to witness a traditional pork pie raising competition. After this, we’ll enjoy a talk at the famous Melton Cheeseboard shop, as well as getting to taste some of the delicious cheeses they sell. Our day isn’t over yet though! We’ll then make our way to Belvoir Brewery, where we’ll take a tour and sample a ploughman’s platter, prepared with locally sourced ingredients.

    Our next excursion will see us travelling to the historical city of Lincoln, where we’ll find pretty cobbled streets and can discover the city’s famous cathedral.
