Must-See in Lincoln

Lincoln is a historic city with a vibrant and contemporary edge that adds an exciting dimension to any visit.

An ideal destination for a city break, Lincoln offers an experience rich in history combined with independent boutique shopping, great arts and culture and a wealth of places to eat and drink. The city is easily walkable for visitors with good mobility – the main shopping and tourist area stretches from St Marks Shopping centre in the south up to the Cathedral Quarter – known locally as ‘Uphill’. Steep Hill, voted Britain’s Great Street 2012, connects ‘downhill’ and ‘uphill’ Lincoln. Yes it is steep as its name suggests, but well worth the walk!
