The Waterside Shopping Centre has been at the heart of Lincoln’s shopping scene since it was opened by Princess Diana in 1992.

The city centre’s only covered shopping mall, the Waterside is home to a fantastic range of retailers offering something for all the family.


Fashion retailers, H&M, Next, New Look, Topshop Topman, Roman Originals and Yours Clothing sit alongside Lincoln’s only approved Apple reseller Stormfront and telcomms giants O2 and Three. Kids make a bee-line to Smiggle and Claire’s, with everyone taking care of their skin at The Body Shop and Superdrug. You can even pick up your holiday money at No 1 Currency and get a great deal on your home phone, broadband and mobile at Virgin. With Lincoln Watch Clinic, Savers and Games Workshop on the outside of the centre, not to mention Goldsmith’s and the Lincoln City Football Club store, there really is something for everyone at the Waterside.

And if you’re peckish after picking up some bargains, then the Waterside won’t disappoint, as you have a choice of Burger King or Caffe Italiano to take a breather and enjoy a bite to eat.


The Waterside Centre has always been keen to play its part in the wider community, that’s why it is often sponsoring city-centre events such as 2020’s Imps Trail, fundraising for its charity partner St Barnabas Hospice and supporting local independent businesses by staging their regular Artists’ Market and Craft Fair.

Centrally positioned on Lincoln High Street and with excellent transport links via regional buses and trains, it’s easy to get to the Waterside Shopping Centre. And Lincoln’s 1,000 space city centre car park is just a few minutes walk away from the centre.


As the centre is open 362 days of the year, (closing only for Christmas Day, New Year’s Day and Easter Sunday) you’ll find there is loads going on.
