The Visit Lincolnshire website also saw excellent growth in 2023. The website has achieved an increase in user traffic up 61 per cent in 2023 compared to 2022. The site (www.visitlincolnshire.com) provides inspiring content of places to visit, stay, eat and drink, as well as events throughout the year.

Coun Colin Davie, executive councillor for economy and environment at the county council, said: “Lincolnshire has always been known as a destination for our fantastic coastline and historic city, but we’re working hard to put the whole county on the map for tourists. In our beautiful countryside and busy market towns, there are truly unique experiences including cycling, walking, golf, birdwatching, manor houses, historic airfields and independent shops. The list goes on!

"Our Visit Lincolnshire website had more than a million views last year as visitors are inspired to book their stay.”
