Getting Here

Bus - Stagecoach Lincolnshire services are changing from 28 January 2018 when Lincoln's new Transport Hub (close to Lincoln Railway Station) opens - more on Stagecoach website. Bus route 9 runs from Lincoln Transport Hub to Doddington Road (and route 6 from Doddington Road to Lincoln) - both run every 15 minutes Monday to Saturday daytimes, and hourly Monday to Saturday evenings and Sunday daytimes. The nearest bus stop is near the 'Swanholme Tavern' bus stop on Doddington Road which is less than 5 minutes' walk to / from the Museum.

Route 6 also provides a link to Doddington Road from Hartsholme and Birchwood, and route 9 back towards Birchwood and Hartsholme.

More information about these services, and timetables, are on Stagecoach Lincolnshire's website.
