You can take a picnic (if you take some sausages and burgers they will barbecue them for you) and have a great night out.

Bishop Alexander rebuilt the Cathedral, but this was destroyed by an Earthquake! Bishop Hugh then built the current Cathedral as it stands today with its gothic stylings, which was completed in 1235. To walk from the cobble up to the Cathedral is b... more

Lincoln is a small City in the Midlands ( about an hour away from Nottingham, Sheffield, Leicester.) I have been born and bred here so am a true yellowbelly! The city itself has about 90,000 inhabitants, and is also home to a beautiful Cathedral and Castle. It is now split into two areas - "the Bail" which is the uphill part of town where the Cathedral, Castle and old buildings are and the High Street which is the more modern area. Although if you look above the shopfronts there is still some amazing architecture and there is a Tea Room bridging the Witham that is hundreds of years old. Since the University has been built the area around ... Read the complete review

A visit to Lincoln can mean so many different things to different people. The old and the new blend together really well in this very pleasant city to make it a very interesting place to visit. As you approach Lincoln you realise why this town has existed since Celtic times and been important ever since. The Romans realised that the 200ft hill above the town provided an excellent natural fortress, whilst the River Witham provided water and a natural defence to slow down any attacking force. The surrounding countryside is rich agricultural land and can sustain any population in the town. Today the river is still an attraction in the town, but instead of ... Read the complete review

I have said that the city of Rochester, in beautiful Kent is one of the smallest cities in England and that, for that, I love it. Lincoln however is one of England's most beautiful Cathedral cities. Set on a hill, overlooking the unspoilt Lincolnshire countryside, you can see further than in practically any other county in England. The land is so flat that, the relief of a wooded area containing a few trees, a welcome sight in the area, could almost be called a forest. The Romans were amongst the first to discover Lincoln. They must have gone north from the town in which I now live, Colchester the old Roman Capital of England. In AD48 they set ... Read the complete review

Just before I moved to Lincoln, many people spoke to me in the following way (apologies to anyone I misquote): 'Oh, moving to Lincoln are you?' 'It's very flat up there' 'Did you know they have a Christmas market just like the ones in Germany?' Lincoln may not be on everyone's list of top ten places to live, but I like it. The city is spectacular, and the good thing about the relative flatness is that I can just about see the cathedral from my house, and I live eight miles away from it - and just you try walking up Steep Hill!! The one quibble I do have with the city is the Christmas market. I ... Read the complete review

I lived in Lincoln for over a year. If you want to leave your troubles behind, pack a bag and head for Lincoln. Honestly,it worked for me, firstly because it is a great place for the touristy kind of things and secondly it is plonked roughly in the middle of nowhere. If you come from one of the big urban conurbations, as I do, you will be amazed to find that there is a city in the UK where you can drive for only five minutes and be out in the countryside, where it is properly dark.....and very flat indeed. There isn't much of a night life, but if you stick to the city centre, the majority of pubs are friendly and trouble free, thanks in part to the extensive ... Read the complete review
