Whisby is a hamlet in the civil parish of Doddington and Whisby, in the North Kesteven district of Lincolnshire, England. It is situated 5 miles (8.0 km) south-west from Lincoln city centre, 1.5 miles (2.4 km) south from Doddington, and 2 miles (3.2 km) north from the A46 road.

Between Whisby and Thorpe on the Hill, 3 miles (5 km) to the south, is Whisby Moor, which includes a nature park run by the Lincolnshire Wildlife Trust.[1] Whisby also has a garden centre.

In 2011 the A46 road underwent reconstruction just outside Whisby. This included the building of a roundabout on the road which leads into the village.[citation needed]

The Nottingham to Lincoln railway line passes 0.5 miles (0.8 km) to the south of the village on Station Road, at a level crossing next to the Railway Inn.[2]
