It even has a cinema. A wonderful survival from the early days of moving pictures but showing all the latest blockbusters on two screens!

The cinema has an interesting story that you can read here, although it doesn't explain why it's called a "Kinema" with a K rather than a cinema.
The other attraction in Woodhall Spa, for me at any rate, was the Petwood Hotel (and thanks again to Christine for recommending it).
|The Petwood Hotel|
Somewhat more upmarket than the establishments I usually patronise, the attraction here was the "Squadron Bar", which is dedicated to the memory of 617 Squadron ("The Dambusters") which few from the nearby airfield. The hotel was requisitioned during the war and served as the Officers' Mess for 617 Squadron and a visit here seemed appropriate after seeing that Lancaster bomber at Coningsby the previous day.
If you do visit, the Squadron Bar has no real ale (or draught beer of any sort), but you can always fetch a pint of Batemans XB from the nearby Terrace Bar, or get your batman to do so!
