Arrived by coach & therefore dropped off at a designated coach drop- off point (highly recommended). Only a short walk to the "start" off the market. There are so many stalls, shops, cafes, places of interest to see along the route. Designed to be a one way system so everything flows very well. Plenty of entertainers, stallholders & organisers that... More

It's not a place for shopping if you wanna buy cheap stuff, but certainly you'll have fun walking though the market and eating food from many different countries around Europe. There's a park too, with a Ferris- wheel from where you can see a beautiful view of the town.

Every year me and my partner go to the Lincoln Christmas Market, we always drive to the park and ride, very easy and a great price. Always plenty of spaces for the car. And the bus is every 10 minutes. It only takes around 8 minutes to get to the market, always a great atmosphere. The location is fantastic as... More

Went on the Thursday as we thought it would be quieter - good decision! There were still loads of people around, but because we were there late afternoon / early evening, we were still able to actually get close to the stalls to see what was on offer. It is worth the visit as the stalls are varied and if... More

Outstanding and well worth visiting. Took about 4 hours to walk around although that was partly due to the huge crowds. Very few duplicated stalls and some very unusual ones too.

Great Christmas market. One of the best I have been to. Loads & loads of different stalls. This is a must Christmas market if you like your Christmas markets. Only problem is it's only on for 4 or 5 days so it is really busy. But for good reason.

Was looking forward to visiting the Christmas market as I had heard a lot of good reports. First impressions were very good with a varied selection of stalls, foods etc. However after about 15 minutes walking around the stalls it became very apparent that most of them were selling the same products, candles, German sausage, cheese, mulled wine! Very repetitive... More

Went to the Christmas market here for the first time this year. What a lovely place with a good range of shops from larger chains and brands to smaller independent retailers. The Christmas market had a good selection of different stalls and prices are in line with other markets at this time of year. There was an extra £1 charge... More
