♔Stamford– Lincolnshire- England

 

In the 1960s John Betjeman called Stamford quite simply ‘England’s most attractive town’.

Stamford is known for its 17th &18th century stone buildings and Medieval churches. It has one of the highest densities of listed buildings in the UK. Fifty years ago Stamford became the UK’s first Conservation Area- the town even has a listed phone box.

Home to the magnificent Burghley House, both the house and gardens are open to the public, and St Leonard’s Priory is well worth the short walk from the town centre.
