Gainsborough is an undeniably quaint market town in Lincolnshire, which has the river Trent running through the middle of it. For many years it found fame as the most inland port in the UK, and following periods of heightened activity during the Middle Ages, or as a frontier town during the English Civil war, it has now settled into the role of a fairly sleepy but hugely appealing market town. Take a look around in the company of a Gainsborough escort and we promise you’ll find out exactly how to have a great time in this corner of the world.
Perhaps the most striking of all the attractions in Gainsborough is the Old Hall. This is one of the largest and most well-preserved medieval manor houses in England, with the bulk of it having been constructed during the 15th Century and additional features created during the Elizabethan era.
The hall is open to the public throughout most of the year, and taking a stroll through the medieval kitchen with its huge fireplace or the massive and highly ornate great hall is like taking a step back in time. Climb to the top of the tower which makes up one part of the hall and you’ll be rewarded with stunning views over the Trent Valley.
If the hall leaves you with more of an appetite for the tranquillity of the past, then make sure you also pay a visit to Richmond Park, which sits to the north of the town. As well as offering some fresh air and the perfect spot to share a picnic with you stunning companion, the park is home to an aviary, greenhouses and an oak tree which is more than 600 years old.
Many of our clients feel the urge to treat their companion to a gift or two, and we can’t really blame them for wanting to put a big smile on that gorgeous face. If you feel the need for some retail therapy of this kind while you’re in Gainsborough, then head to Marshall’s Yard. This complex was once a massive iron works but has now been reinvented as a 21st century retail and leisure complex. As well as a host of big name retailers it offers places to eat and drink, landscaped grounds and a health club. Even if you can’t find just the right piece of jewellery or lingerie, you could still cap your day at the Yard off in style by treating your escort to a horse and carriage ride through the grounds.
If you want to enjoy a traditional Lincolnshire night out then look no further than the traditional pubs you’ll find it Gainsborough. The Horse and Jockey, the unusually names Sewyn Forkbeard and the White Horse all offer an excellent choice of drinks and snacks in welcoming surroundings. If that leaves you hungry for more then you could simply pop into Batty’s Traditional Fish and Chips, which does exactly what it says on the tin. If you want something a little more refined then check out The Moonlight Indian restaurant or the Lincolnshire Otter, a pub serving a variety of dishes on the outskirts of the town.
