The local area guide to living in Stamford

The town of Stamford is based in the South Kesteven district of Lincolnshire, and is well known for its five impressive medieval churches and attractive timber framed buildings. Stamford has been called the best stone town in England, and the style of building remains a huge draw. It’s a great place to live for architecture fans as the whole of the old town is listed as an area of national architectural interest. It’s certainly a beautiful place to live and is idyllic enough to have formed the backdrop for television drama Middlemarch and films including Pride & Prejudice and The Da Vinci Code. Stamford is regularly a finalist in The Sunday Times’ ‘Best Place To Live In Britain’ competition.

In terms of secondary schools, within the town itself is Stamford Welland Academy, which was classed as ‘requiring improvement’ in its last Ofsted inspection. There is also Stamford School, a boy’s school that was founded in 1532, and Stamford High School, a girl’s school that was founded in 1877. The two schools share a co-educational sixth form that was formed in 2000 and New Stamford College also offers post-16 further education options.

Getting around

Stamford sits very close to the A1, making car travel an easy option to areas further afield. However, travelling within the town itself is generally easier by bus, as congestion is a problem due to a bottleneck caused by a lack of road crossings. Parking can also be tricky.

The town has a railway station, which is located close to the river, just off Wothorpe Road. There is a direct service to Stansted airport, which takes around an hour and forty minutes, and London can be reached in just under an hour and a half. There are direct services to Peterborough, Birmingham New Street and Leicester. The nearest international airport is East Midlands airport, though, as mentioned, Stansted is also easily accessible.

Stamford’s main shopping area is made up of High Street St. Martin’s and Castle Street. There are plenty of independent shops, though you will also find an excellent selection of major supermarkets, with Tesco, M&S, Waitrose and Morrisons all having branches in the town. Mary’s High Street in particular is known for its unique gift shops, all of which are independently owned.

Up-market diners are also catered for by the Gallery Restaurant, which serves contemporary English cuisine. The town boasts 30 pubs as well, meaning there will never be a lack of options for wetting your whistle.
