Louth in General Reviews
Newest Review: ... Georgian and early Victorian Era. Numerous street names end with "gate", such as Eastgate and Westgate. This stems from when the Danes conquered the region, in the 9th century. The Danish name "gata" meant "street". Louth has more pubs than just about any other town of a similar size in England. There is somewhere in the region of 20-25 pubs. The market place has a good choice of restaurants, fish and chip shops, and varied eating establishments. The town also has a cinema and night clubs.There are market days on wednesday, friday and saturday, and these are very popular, along with the independent shops. Oft... more

Historic Louth is the capital of the Lincolnshire Wolds. It is situated in Mid Lincolnshire, 25 km south of Grimsby, 40 km from Lincoln. There are no rail links to Louth, so car is the realistic way of getting there. The town has a population of around 15 000, although there are lots of close surrounding villages. Louth is well known for having been the home of Lord Tennyson. You should expect to have to pay to park in the town centre, during peak hours. The most striking feature of Louth is the tall St James' Church. This is the tallest parish church in England, built in the 16th century, 295 ft high. There are opportunities ...

Small and quaint - isn't that what every visitor says? Louth, in Lincolnshire , nestles amongst the hills of the Lincolnshire Wolds and is that rare thing - a small town populated with independant shops and eclcted tastes. Walk up and down the main streets and you will come across interesting little shops - full of intriguing gifts and little hide aways. There are few national chains - Country Casuals and Wilkinsons being examples - and many a well stocked charity shop to tempt the passer by. Even the cinema is an independent one! Within the town centre there is also a market place - with a market every friday and saturday and a farmers market every fourth ... Read the complete review

Ahhh the lovely Georgian town of Louth situated in the quietness of the wolds. Sounds quite nice when I put it like that don?t it. Anyway It?s not that bad considering the size of it. ~~~Location~~~ Like my other reviews I?ve written for the uk/travel guide, this town is located again in Lincolnshire. But it?s a bit of a world away from Grimsby and Cleethorpes trust me. If you haven?t read my other reviews Lincolnshire Is a county located on the east side of the uk. Also I may point out that Lincolnshire is one of the counties with the most uninhabited land. This is because the land in Lincolnshire is mainly used for farming.. But that doesn?t mean to ...

Louth, population 12000, not including any sheep, is too small to be a major tourist destination. I`ve lived here for years and it has always seemed to be a quiet, sleepy place. Nevertheless there are several places worth a visit around here, particularly if you have younger children in tow. During the summer the townspeople of Louth head for the hills. Hubbards Hills, that is, as well as Westgate Fields which are right beside each other on the outskirts of town. On sunny bank holidays perhaps a third of the town will be there, or so it appears, paddling in the river Lud and feeding the ducks. Whilst Westgate Fields are mostly just fields, the Hills are ...
