Grantham ‘among the UK’s best-loved market towns’

Welcome to Grantham
Welcome to Grantham

Our wonderful market town has been voted among the best-loved in the UK in a survey conducted by coach company National Express.

In its summer survey of a thousand people designed to uncover the nation’s favourite market towns, Grantham came third.

National Express said it hopes the poll will offer summer travel inspiration – and perhaps encourage people to visit somewhere new.

Here’s the list of favourite market towns in full:

1. Ross-on-Wye (Herefrordshire)

2. Thirsk (North Yorkshire)

3. Grantham (Lincolnshire)

4. Bedford (Bedfordshire)

5. Shepton Mallet (Somerset)

6. Chippenham (Wiltshire)

7. Ledbury (Herefordshire)

8. Tie: Fareham (Hampshire), Bridport (Dorset) Devizes (Wiltshire)

9. Wareham (Dorset)

10. Farnham (Hampshire)

National Express managing director Tom Stables said: “Grantham, which is rich in history and packed with points of interest, is a real gem so it’s hardly surprising it is regarded as one of the best towns in the UK.

“It’s tough to think of anything more quintessentially British than a market town and we think that’s worth celebrating.”
