Visitor Attractions in Lincolnshire

Although a rural county, the landscape in Lincolnshire is predominantly man-made, a patchwork of cultivated fields interspersed with roads and towns. However there are lots of places in the county where it's possible to get in touch with nature and to spot wild creatures in their natural habitats. The Lincolnshire Wolds, for instance, is a designated Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
