For a time, albeit one in our distant history, Gainsborough was a capital city, though it served thus only briefly and just for one of the several kingdoms which then made England. It is notable too as having once been the furthest inland port in the country. You could add another claim to fame for the town by making it the venue for your wedding. The ships have gone, but the Trent that carried them remains to provide some characterful quayside, in keeping with the Jacobean and Tudor red-brick buildings that grace Gainsborough’s streets and beyond into the surrounding countryside. And if Richard III and Henry VIII spent time in the town, why shouldn’t you?
