I do wonder why people rave about Stamford? Definitely Over built, houses being built absolutely everywhere and all being squeezed into every inch of Stamford. No green space left hardly
Most of the usual handy nice normal shops have shut down over the years and now most shops are expensive boutique type shops or charity shops . Always a busy place, hard to park the car and traffic everywhere. Market same old same old for years. Why the house prices are expensive here I have no idea. Stuffy, road busy and a dirty looking place with nothing to do
Not for me

When the average traveler has a mental picture of what they think an traditional English town should be, Stamford delivers that and so much more, every corner, every little alleyway, every church (and Stamford is packed with a plethora of really historic churches), virtually every building, just oozes history and charm.

I stayed in Stamford on business. While there I spent soemtime wandering aroud the town centre. I must say it is a beautiful town, full of old stone buildings that give you a real sense of what it must have been like hundreds of years ago. The town cnetre has a real ecclectic mix of shops, modern goods and less traditioanl goods, stringed instruments, pens etc. Well worth stopping off for an amble around. Lots of old buildings and art centres to view also. I like the town I live in on the SE coast, but Stamford is one of the few places I have visited that I would honestly say, if I had to relocate, I wouldn't mind living here.

Spent a day exploring this lovely honey-coloured stone town. So nice that the town centre is a conservation area. Lots that you could see and do. We booked the walking tour from the Tourist Information Centre £6.50 per head and were taken round the town by 2 very pleasant ladies, showing not only the best bits but also some more out of the way places which we might not have found. Lots of pubs, restaurants, cafes to choose from. Parking in the town centre should be avoided. There are car parks just outside within an easy walk. We were staying at the William Cecil which kindly let us park in their car park (though we had checked out by then) and just walked the 10 minutes or so into town. Do stop to see the Meadows area and views of the Stone Bridge.
