Trains to Spalding travel through the Lincolnshire Fens along the banks of the River Welland, before coming to rest in this charming Georgian town built on reclaimed marshland. The station opened in 1848, and by the close of the 19th century it had doubled in size as the town became a major rail. Over the years the station has been stripped back and undergone various rebuilds, so the facade is all that remains of the original. Due to its unique geographical position, Spalding's soil is legendary - in springtime the town is ablaze with hyacinths, daffodils and tulips, culminating in the Flower Festival each May. But there's also much to love for those without green fingers. Many 18th century buildings line the riverbanks, including Ayscoughfee Hall Museum and Gardens, the Museum of Antiquities and Gordon Boswell Romany Museum. For those seeking retail therapy, Springfields Outlet Shopping and Gardens houses over 40 stores.
