Local attractions

Not all who wander are lost

Ulceby is situated at the top end of the picturesque Lincolnshire Wolds and there is plenty on offer for Bird watchers, walkers and Mountain bike riders.

Thornton Abbey – On our doorstep managed by English Heritage. A medieval abbey founded as a priory in 1139 by William le Gros, the Earl of Yorkshire, and raised to the status of abbey in 1148. It was a house for Augustinian or black canons, who lived a communal life under the Rule of St Augustine but also undertook pastoral duties outside of the Abbey. The abbey was closed in 1539 by Henry VIII as part of the Dissolution of the Monasteries.

Humber Bridge – See the world-renowned bridge with its elegance and size. The Humber Bridge, is a 2,220-metre single-span suspension bridge, which opened to traffic on 24 June 1981. When it was opened, it was the longest of its type in the world; it was not surpassed until 1998, with the completion of the Akashi Kaikyō Bridge, and it is now the eighth-longest. It spans the Humber, (the estuary formed by the rivers Trent and Ouse).

Kingston Upon Hull – Just over the Bridge visit the awesome historical town of Hull. The architecture of historic Old Town and Museum Quarter, Hull Marina and The Deep are worth a visit.

Lincoln City – And you have to travel to Lincoln, 25 minutes away to explore the Cathedral, the Castle and stroll down Steep Hill.
