Mini guide to Scunthorpe

     

Over the years, the city of Scunthorpe in North Lincolnshire has evolved from its origins as five separate, sleepy villages into the single, sizeable city that it is today. While the town's status as a steel-producing centre may conjure up images of a smoke-belching industrial town, Scunthorpe is in fact one of England's true garden cities, boasting abundant natural areas of parks and woodland.

Located a few miles from the town centre, Normanby Hall Country Park is the region's main attraction encompassing a spectacular Regency house containing the Farming Museum with exhibits exploring agriculture and country life, and period rooms and costume galleries, while the exquisitely landscaped grounds spanning 300 acres feature the beautiful Victorian Walled Garden.

With its extensive areas of forest and parkland, Scunthorpe provides endless opportunities for leisure and recreation ranging from kite flying and picnicking to walking, cycling and bird watching. Other highlights of the town are the Heritage Trail and steam train rides that offer insight into Scunthorpe's history and development into the major iron centre that it is today.

Scunthorpe is surrounded by a number of charming towns and enticing attractions that are well worth visiting including: Barton-upon-Humber, with its ancient Church of St Peter's; Thornton Abbey on the Wolds and the vibrant market of Brigg, with its plethora of specialty shops, colourful Thursday market and meandering riverside paths.

The M180 motorway connects North Lincolnshire with other parts of the UK, providing easy road access to Scunthorpe and its environs. Local and express bus services travel regularly throughout the area and Scunthorpe is connected by rail to the East Coast Mainline at Doncaster. Humberside and Manchester international airports serve the region offering a wide selection of domestic and international flights.
