Park and Ride

Subject to government restrictions, the council intends for the Lincoln Christmas Market to go ahead, taking place from 2-5 December, 2021. Therefore all information below is subject to change until nearer the time.

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 LN1 2ZF (but please remember to follow directions/signs when approaching the venue). There is also a dedicated service for people with disabilities, using specially adapted vehicles which also runs from the showground.

All buses drop off close to the Museum of Lincolnshire Life.

Pre book Park and Ride

Advance ticket sales will be open for the park and ride later in the year.

Operating times for the Park and Ride

Thursday 2nd December: 11.30am – 10pm
Friday 3rd and Saturday 4th December:  9am – 10pm
Sunday 5th December: 9am – 7:30pm

A vehicle carrying 8 to 15 people is classed as a mini bus.

Park and Ride postcode: LN1 2ZF (this postcode is approximate therefore please remember to follow directions/signs when approaching the venue)

The earliest time denotes departure from the Showground and the latest time denotes departure from the Museum of Lincolnshire Life.
