Woodhall Spa is a beautiful inland resort with an Edwardian character, set amidst magnificent pine woods. Regarded as one of Lincolnshire’s most attractive villages, Woodhall Spa is famous for its peaceful and relaxing atmosphere.

Take a walk round the Woodhall Spa Heritage Trail. Read about 21 areas of significance in the Spa’s history on this website and/or pick up the heritage trail leaflet from the Tourist Information Office. Find out why the Spa Baths (the facility to which Woodhall Spa owes its existence) have been disused for the past 33 years. Amongst others the trail includes the Spa Baths, Kinema in the Woods, Petwood Hotel, Jubilee Park, Kirkstead Abbey and St Leonard’s Church

The Kinema in the Woods

The Kinema in the Woods, known as the ‘The Flicks in the Sticks’ during the Second World War, was converted from a cricket pavilion in 1922 by Captain Allport. Today with its unique back projection, and the opening of a second screen in 1994, you can catch all the latest movies, as well as some timely classics.

Cottage Museum

The Museum building itself is an important Museum exhibit. It is a rare surviving example of a bungalow constructed of corrugated iron on a wooden frame that was erected in the late nineteenth century. John Wield (1877-1965) was a keen photographer and his photographic collection is the basis of the Museum. The collection of images is a unique and valuable record of life in Woodhall Spa and includes images of both people and the local area.
