see the sights Places to Visit

With a history spanning millennia and more local heritage sites than you can shake a medieval sword at, Lincolnshire is truly blessed. These are just some of our favourite places to visit…


Lincoln Cathedral

Iconic and full of fascination, Lincoln Cathedral dominates the skyline. Dating back to the days of William the Conqueror, it’s the third biggest cathedral in the country. From feats of architectural genius to medieval battles and secret relics, this is a must-visit.

Usher Gallery

The Collection/Usher Gallery

Situated in the heart of Lincoln, The Collection is home to Lincoln’s archaeology museum and the Usher Gallery. With free entry, it’s a pocket-friendly escape from the bustle. If you’ve got little ones in tow, banish boredom with a trip to the activity centre – it’s a firm favourite – and the café’s pretty good too!

Lincoln Castle

Ordered by William the Conqueror, the blood had hardly clotted from the Norman Conquest, when work began on Lincoln Castle in 1068. Today the main invaders are visitors, seduced by its history. Home to one of only four copies of the 1215 Magna Carta, the Castle also offers an epic view of the city. The Castle has just reopened after the long-awaited ‘Lincoln Castle Revealed’ project.

International Bomber Command Centre at Canwick

Just a short distance from Washingborough Hall Hotel, the site houses a memorial spire, walls, centre and peace gardens to commemorate the aircrew who lost their lives during the Second World War. Standing at an impressive 31 metre's tall, the memorial spire is the UK's tallest war memorial and the view through the spire leads your eyes directly to Lincoln Cathedral, which provided a landmark for crews both leaving for and returning from missions.
