Welcome to JK CABS Gainsborough, We are a Gainsborough based company providing Hackney Carriage hire throughout Gainsborough and surrounding areas. Gainsborough is a town on the River Trent within the West Lindsey district of Lincolnshire. At one time it served as an significant inland port, with much trade downstream to Hull and the North Sea, the latter about 55 miles away. A short time ago the river banks were renovated to provide residents and tourists with access to the riverside and a seating area to enjoy the fantastic views. Gainsborough is also surrounded by Many villages and towns. We serve all of these.
The town’s main attractions are Gainsborough Old Hall, Marshalls Yard and West Lindsey Leisure Centre, each of these are visited by many tourists all throughout the year.
Gainsborough Old Hall was constructed in the 15th century; Gainsborough Old Hall is now the setting for a number of activities, including regular Craft Fairs, school visits and lectures. There is a thriving Friends’ group, which organises lectures and various activities. The Hall is open to visitors, and is well worth a visit with the family for a fun and entertaining day out.
One of the best-preserved manor houses in Britain, Gainsborough Old Hall is a large, 15th-century, timber-framed medieval strong house. Sir Thomas Burgh built it between 1460 and 1480. It boasts a magnificent Great Hall and strong brick tower. King Richard III in 1483 and King Henry VIII in 1541 both stayed at the Old Hall. The site of Gainsborough Castle is located just to the north.
The main church is All Saints, built c. 1740 with a mix of perpendicular Gothic and Classical Revival styles.
