Having first heard of the joys of Stamford a very long time ago, when we eventually went we could not understand why we had left it for so long having favoured the Cotswolds, Bath, Tunbridge Wells and Chester but when we made the trip we discovered an absolute gem of a town. we picked up a copy of the town walk from the tourist information centre and only managed to get around half of it in around two hours having arrived at the end of the day following a trip to nearby Burghley house. We now plan to return and complete the route and can't wait to plan our trip. Thoroughly fascinating and made no less enjoyable by the traffic, at the end of the day and being rush hour, the town is a funnel for traffic and access is limited as in all old towns by old buildings and historic bridges.It was no less beautiful for it though. Friendly people, many of whom asked if we needed help when seeing us consulting our town walk guide when we were merely engrossed in it, had we genuinely needed assistance it was nice to know that so many would be so willing to help.Made the town feel so much more warm and comforting and for that reason we are also looking forward to our return. Not to be overlooked, get there as soon as you can.Stunning
