We are delighted to announce that our new ‘Discover Gainsborough’ heritage trail booklet will be available from the beginning of April. The booklet was produced by the Townscape Heritage Initiative team in partnership with The Heritage Centre and it features a guided 90 minute walk around the heart of Gainsborough, taking in its iconic landmarks and giving a taste of our town’s varied history.
The booklet provides a guide to the main visitor attractions in the town, which will serve as a useful tool for encouraging tourism, and ensuring that visitors to the main attractions linger longer in Gainsborough to see what else we have to offer. It also provides a much needed local walk for our community while we are restriced to ‘staying local’.

The booklets will eventually be available to collect from most of Gainsborough’s visitor attractions, but whilst they remain closed due to Covid restrictions you can request a booklet to be posted out to you FREE of charge by sending your name and address to
