Stamford Area Guide

Proclaimed by Sir Walter Scott as “the finest stone town in England”, Stamford was declared a conservation area in 1967 and offers over 600 listed buildings of mellow limestone and five medieval churches.

 

Stamford is filled with both excitement and tranquillity. Whether you're drawn to the markets and busy high street or relaxing walks along the river, Stamford has something for everyone.

The main street market is on a Friday with a smaller Saturday market and once a fortnight there is a farmers market, while the main high street and market squares offer coffee shops, pubs, restaurants and attractions to explore.

On the outskirts of Stamford is one of the most impressive Elizabethan houses in England, Burghley House, which has 18 treasure-filled state rooms of world-renowned tapestries, porcelain and paintings. While you are in the area you can enjoy a visit to Burghley House and the beauty of Rutland Water to the west, one of Europe’s largest reservoirs and now a haven for fishing, cycling, sailing and wildlife, and rolling countryside with picturesque villages all round.

You must not miss the Arts Centre; built in 1768 it is one of the oldest provincial theatres in England, which holds many events throughout the year, the Steam Brewery, Browne’s Hospital’s and the 12th century ruins of St Leonard’s Priory. They are all worth a look and you may well find an event going on at one of these places or on the Town Meadows, in this ‘town of festivals’.
