This is a great shop in Horncastle for picking up handmade souvenirs to bring home to family and friends. Hand knit gloves, paper products and gifts for baby all came home with me to the states. Reasonably priced too!

Picked up some great leaflets on walks around the area on our visit. Helpful staff. Would have given 5 bubbles but not open on a Sunday which isn't ideal if you want to visit the tourist information centre which is now located in here.

I absolutely love coming to the Joseph Banks Centre. It's absolutely crammed (although very tastefully) with little treasures - ideal for those you find it difficult to buy gifts for! There's a wide selection of items and mostly made by local artists. Nice to have...More
