The Market Town of Spalding

Situated on the banks of the River Welland, Spalding is famous for being the centre of the flower industry in Britain, live entertainment and traditional markets.

The 'old town' of Spalding is compact with many independently owned shops and The Crescent is an attractive curved street with a mixture of Georgian, Victorian and contemporary architecture.

Spalding and the surrounding 'South Holland' area is renowned for its fertile land and horticulture. Although there are currently no plans for the Flower Parade to take place on the first Saturday in May this year, it is hoped there will still be a variety of flower festivals and events in and around Spalding at this time.

The Springfields Festival Gardens were completely redeveloped in 2004 and are a beautifully landscaped area, featuring Chelsea-style celebrity showcase gardens, including designs by Charlie Dimmock, Chris Beardshaw, Kim Wilde and Steven Woodhams, and a spectacular Japanese Garden by Sansui Design. At Springfields there is now also an outlet shopping complex with more than 55 stores and a great choice of cafes, restaurants and a family friendly pub.

Why not combine a visit to the town with a trip to the Springfields Shopping Outlet and Festival Gardens by taking a 35 minute trip along the river on the Spalding Water Taxi, which gives a unique way to see the town and the wildlife.

Spalding is an approximate 30 minute drive from Low Farm.
