Washingborough Hall Hotel is located 3 miles from the historic centre of the City of Lincoln, the administrative centre of the county of Lincolnshire.   Located 141 miles north of London and 17 miles northeast of Newark-on-Trent, Lincoln’s colourful history dates back to the 1st Century BC.

The city is dominated by the magnificent Lincoln Cathedral, which was completed in 1098.  It is the third largest cathedral in the country after St.Paul’s in London and York Minster and stands prominently on top of Lincoln edge – visible from miles around the city. In 1068 after the Norman Conquest, William 1 ordered the building of Lincoln Castle, which still houses one of four surviving copies of the Magna Carta sealed by King John in 1215.

Although having a superb heritage to preserve, Lincoln today is a thriving progressive city. The Brayford Waterfront, inland marina and is a cosmopolitan hub, buzzing with entertainment. There are a host of boutiques, restaurants and relaxing cafes for visitors.

Interesting things to do and see are not just limited to the city of Lincoln; the county of Lincolnshire provides a host of places of interest.  Washingborough Hall provides an ideal base from which to explore.
