The town of Stamford is situated 100 miles north of London, just off the A1, which was the old Great North Road leading to York and Edinburgh.
Captured in time by its conservation status this once major wool town has retained much of its old world charm and prosperity. Many of the buildings are constructed from old Lincolnshire limestone, hence the town's distinguished appearance and popularity with tourists and movie directors alike.
Despite a modest population of 18,000 the town boasts 11 churches, 30 pubs, 20 restaurants and over 10 quality hotels and guest houses. Most of the pubs serve Real Ale and are conveniently within walking distance of town centre, railway and bus stations.
The purpose of this web site is to provide comprehensive and entertaining information for both the prospective visitor as well as current and future residents.
Stamford.co.uk, founded in 1996, is the town's longest established web site and following our 2004 refurbishment we hope to continue to bring Stamford to you and you to Stamford.
4 miles north of historic Stamford in the idyllic hamlet of Aunby. Situated on a hill top with views of rolling countryside, fields and forests to all four aspects, it is the ideal setting for a “get away from it all” holiday or short break.
