In Snow Leopard I could switch spaces by pressing +Number. Is there a way to turn that on in Lion?

Yes you can. Just changes the shortcut setting in the System Preferences>Keyboard>Keyboard Shortcut. You will find Mission Control section for shortcut, and there is entry called Switch to Desktop.

You could define your own shortcut here.
