Where is Bourne? Getting to Bourne.

Here at It's Funtime, we are proud to offer our bouncy castle hire services in and around our home town of Bourne. Today we decided to give you a little more information about our lovely market town.

The fabulous market town of Bourne is situated on the southern edge of  Lincolnshire, close to the borders of Cambridgeshire and Rutland in the East of England. The A15 (formerly known as the Great Road from London to Lincoln), runs through the centre of the town itself .

Where is Bourne, South Lincolnshire?

Bourne is nestled between towns of Market Deeping, Spalding, and Stamford and Sleaford, approximately 16 miles from the city of Peterborough. We are 97 miles north of London and from Peterborough enjoy easy rail access to London Kings Cross. The town is around 10 miles from the nearest motorway, the A1, linking to the A1M at Leeds (North) and the A1M at Peterborogh giving easy access to both London and the Sottish Borders.. The market town of Bourne is only a 45 minute drive from the east coast where the land meets The Wash but is about an hour and half drive to the holiday resorts of Skegness, Hunstanton and Mablethorpe.  You can access the larger towns of Grantham, Boston Sleaford and Oakham within 40 minutes on the road and the cities of Lincoln, Cambridge and Nottingham are around an hours drive allowing easy access to all they bring including theatres, shopping areas and tourist attractions. The popular attraction of Rutland Water complete with man made beach and waterpark is also just a 30 minute drive of Bourne

Bourne - Facts And Figures

Lincolnshire is a very large (in fact the second largest county in the country) and diverse county in the East of England, covering some 2292 square miles and situated between the Humber and the Wash. Many find the pace of life is generally substantially slower than much of the country, due to a relatively sparse population and traditional values.  Bourne boasts fantastic schools, good medical care and a generally very friendly atmosphere.  Lincolnshire is also considered a very safe county where violent crime is one of the lowest rates in England making it a firm favourite for young families and the elderly alike. Bourne lies right on the edge of the reclaimed land of the Lincolnshire Fens and can be a little prone to flooding. 

We hope you have enjoyed our little blog about the market town we know and love.  We sincerely hope that if you live here, you love it as much as we do, and if you don't live here, you'll maybe visit us someday.
