Trains to Market Rasen

Market Rasen station opened in 1848, giving the Lincolnshire town a new connection with its neighbours, and with the seaside at Grimsby and Cleethorpes. The historic brick buildings remain in place, although they are no longer used, and there is an attractive wooden shelter still standing on platform 2. Today, trains to Market Rasen travel between Grimsby and Newark (via Lincoln) – but if you’re travelling on a weekend, bear in mind Sunday services on this line are extremely limited. Market Rasen itself is a pleasant town whose heart is to the north of the station, with most shops and other services clustered around Queen Street. Along with bringing greater connections for the people of the town, the railway also helped the growth in popularity of Market Rasen Racecourse, just over a mile to the east of the station. Market Rasen is also a good base for exploring the Lincolnshire Wolds Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, whose western boundary is just a few miles away.
