Disabled Access

Lincoln Christmas Market takes place in the historic quarter of Lincoln with some parts on cobbled streets. In area such as the Castle grounds we have tried to make the walkways and public spaces as even as possible, with ramps on to raised areas.

The Christmas Market takes places at the top of Steep Hill, which at its steepest is a 1:7 gradient. A Park and Ride scheme is available for disabled visitors that drop passengers off at the top of the hill and there are also other buses services from the town centre that will do the same. Further details on these services can be found below.

Visitors with registered Assistance Dogs

As the Christmas Market can be very busy, especially at weekends, and may not be a suitable environment for dogs we do not allow dogs at the event except for assistance dogs.


There is no parking in the vicinity of the Christmas Market so all cars should use the dedicated Christmas Market Park and Ride service which operates from the Lincolnshire Showground on the A15 just north of Lincoln. The park and ride site will be well sign posted on all approach roads and for those using a sat nav the postcode is LN2 2NA. There is also a dedicated service for people with disabilities, using specially adapted vehicles which also run from the showground.

Bus Services from the city centre

A variety of bus services operate from the town centre up to the Christmas Market. Most bus services operate from the bus station which is just opposite the train station. The Walk and Ride service operates from Silver Street up to the market.

More details such as timetables will be available nearer the time.


Accessible toilet facilities for disabled people are available on site including at the park and ride site at the Lincolnshire Showground.

Medical Facilities

There will be medical and welfare facilities on site for all visitors.
