Overcrowded most of the time, and Saturday night just madness. Almost frightening being in the crowd being sent round in the one way system, no way of getting even to the stalls to see what was on offer. I would not take children anywhere near.

I was astonished at how very tacky this market was. I had been expecting to buy lots of things but there was absolutely nothing but cheap rubbish. The Park and Ride was ridiculously expensive for a ten minute ride and we will certainly not return.

Usual scenario for a Christmas market, vendors selling all the normal Christmas market merchandise and fayres. There are children's rides. Quite a steep hill of cobbles to walk up. Gets very busy as it only runs 3 / 4 days we went on a Friday...More

It was a very cold & windy Saturday & had to park 2 miles out of the centre, probably best to do park & ride in future. Usual stalls, too many good ones, would have liked more hand made ones. Endless coach groups, on leaving...More

Lincoln market is a must see. Magical lights and atmosphere with chocolate and spice aromas that make you feel all warm. Beautiful cathedral and worth a look around. Highly recommend.

There seems to be fewer stalls each year. Stall holders complain about increasing costs. The market is living off its past reputation but the goodwill of the public is wearing thin.

The atmosphere was lovely and we even had a little flurry of snow but the selection of stalls was a little disappointing and it seemed a little more like a fairground than a traditional Christmas market

the park & ride is located at Lincolnshire Show Ground, which is about 4 miles from where the Market is based. Buses are usually every 10-15 minutes. However, as a local, I believe it is extremely expensive, unless you have... More
