One of England’s most historic cities, Lincoln is a place to immerse yourself in history and enjoy easy access to the lovely rural Lincolnshire countryside that surrounds you.
The perfect destination for a family holiday or for a weekend getaway with friends or a loved one, Lincoln offers a wealth of historical attractions and outdoor activities.
Much of its history has been preserved in the buildings found around the city; The Gothic style Lincoln Cathedral is one of the town’s most famous landmarks, as is Lincoln Castle, an 11th Century Norman castle that remains intact to this day. The panoramic view of the cathedral, town and countryside from the castle walls is spectacular, as is the view from the top of Steep Hill in the Bailgate quarter.
You’ll find plenty to do and see in Lincoln and a visit to the Gainsborough Old Hall and Museum of Lincolnshire Life offers a great insight into the history of the region. The Ellis Windmill is another popular attraction and this 18th Century mill still works today.
Lincoln has close ties to the Second World War; the first tanks were built here. There are now many wartime museums and memorials, and the Lincolnshire Aviation Heritage Centre even offers visitors the chance to taxi down the runway in an original Lancaster Bomber.
Lincoln has plenty of activities for children and Fantasy Island and Pleasure Island theme parks are perfect for a fun day out. In addition there is also a ghost walk, and for those interested in history, take the Roman Ruin Tour.
There are plenty of outdoor activities including a lovely walk or cycle ride along the Fossdyke Canal Trail. Explore the surrounding countryside or enjoy a boat trip on the medieval Brayford Pool.
