PLANNING YOUR NEXT VISIT TO STAMFORD?


We look forward to seeing you!


BEST DAYS TO VISIT STAMFORD:

Weekdays Monday to Thursday tend to be less busy for car parks and shops. Please check that your favourite shops, restaurants and places of interest are open when you plan to visit. 

Friday is the main market day with stalls in Broad Street and Ironmonger Street, and many of the smaller car parks are filling up early.

Saturday is also a busy day with market stalls in 

High Street and Red Lion Square. Again, car parks can fill quite quickly. Sunday sees a great many shops open and the town and car parks are usually more accessible the earlier you arrive. Stamford can be busy during the summer months with a wealth of fairs, events and outdoor eateries attracting visitors to the town. The lead-up to Christmas attracts shoppers from far and wide so aim to arrive early in the day for a truly great Stamford experience!

Stamford's NEW volunteer-led Visitor Centre can provide lots of useful and interesting information for your visit. 

Open Wednesday-Friday-Saturday 10am to 4pm.

Find them on Facebook "Stamford Visitor Centre"
