This weekend, I went to Lincoln for the day. Known for it’s history and charm, there is so much on offer for tourists. I have rounded up 5 different ways to experience this historic city. There’s something for everyone and is well worth a visit.
Stick it on ya bucket list!
1. Lincoln Cathedral
Lincoln is historically known as a cathedral city, and this iconic landmark is a must-see. The third largest in Britain, the building also stood the tallest in the world for 238 years, up until 1549.
2. Lincoln Castle
A popular tourist attraction, the castle is open to the public as a museum. Regular events take place, along with various education and craft courses. The castle boasts two mottes, making it one of two of it’s kind in the whole of the UK. Explore and learn the castle’s history while experiencing stunning panoramic 360 degree views of the city.
3. Ghost Walks
Get spooked with an original way to take a tour of the city. Joining one of the award-winning tours, learn about Lincoln’s ghostly past while taking a stroll through the central streets. Tours run several times a week, departing from a city centre location generally around 7pm.
4. Steep Hill
Steep Hill was awarded “Britain’s Best Place” in 2011 and it sure does live up to the title. Starting from Lincoln Cathedral and leading to the high street, the hill is very popular with tourists. Featuring a selection of independent shops, tea rooms and pubs; there’s a lot on offer. True to it’s name, Steep Hill has a 14% gradient at it’s steepest point. Definitely a workout and a half.
Lincoln is a shopaholics paradise, featuring an impressive range of high street and independent stores. The Waterside Shopping Centre is convenient with the shops all under one roof. It’s perfect for those inevitable rainy days. Historic markets and specialist shops are just a couple of other options. There’s plenty to choose from to suit everyone’s needs, so a visit to Lincoln is sure to leave you shopped out!
