Our opening times

We are open Monday to Saturday, from 10.00am – 4.00pm or by special arrangement for groups of visitors.

Unique products

Beautiful, hand selected one off products that you will not find elsewhere on the high street.

Hand made craft products

We support local craft businesses who supply us with unique gifts at prices that you can afford.

Shopping is good for your health

Since opening in 2006 we have sourced quality products and carefully selected our local Lincolnshire suppliers.

As well as being a visitor centre and retail experience we also support people back into employment, providing work opportunities to those who are furthest away from the workplace … We are also supported by a combination of fantastic volunteers and paid staff. 


Thousands of people pass through our doors each year, we must be getting something right.

The Joseph Banks Centre is not simply a retail outlet, we are a visitor destination. Our offer includes crafts and gifts, a hidden tribute garden, tourist information centre and research standard information featuring Sir Joseph Banks and the great Lincolnshire explorers.
