The town of Stamford is an ideal visitor destination, thanks to a combination of niche shops and bars, quality local food establishments, traditional and bustling Friday market, magnificent Georgian architecture and active arts community, including the active Stamford Arts Centre, built in 1768 and is one of the oldest provincial theatres in England.
Stamford is proud to be the most complete stone town in England, with whole street left unchanged over the centuries and boasting 600 listed mellow limestone buildings. The town also offers many events throughout the year, including the bi-ennial Georgian Festival and annual Land Rover Burghley Horse Trials, one of the world’s most prestigious equestrian events, located in the grounds of Burghley House. Why not delight in a tour around the historic house of Grimsthorpe Castle, or take in the stunning panorama of Rutland Water nearby.
Stamford also benefits from a popular town trail, which explores market squares, local destinations, thoroughfares and Town Hall turs on Fridays, which houses priceless and rare artefacts helping to make it one of the best collections of civic memorabilia open to the public in the UK. This unique blend of history, community spirit and culture helped earn Stamford the title of ‘Britain’s Top Place to Live’ by The Sunday Times newspaper in March 2013.
