"A fine handsome town" Stamford by sourbugger

Stamford Travel Guide: 54 reviews and 119 photos

Stamford is a place I escape to as often as i can.

The place is a handsome town with over 600 listed buildings, the river Welland running through it, the magnificent George hotel and more watering holes than you can shake a stick at.

For such an impressive place it gets remarkably few tourists. They are missing out in a big way.

If you have ever watched a period drama filmed by the BBC, then the chances are that you will have seen something of Stamford already.

    Nice page about a very underated place. I love The George, used to make a point of breaking my cross-country train journeys to stop for lunch.

    I love Stamford, I`ve always wanted to stay at the George but am too mean to pay to stay somewhere so close to home
