Lincoln is one of the best kept secrets in England...

Visit once and we can almost guarantee you'll be come back again - and again! Maybe it's the artisan food, the friendly Lincolnshire people, the history and culture, or the events and activities that keep visitors wanting more.

Steeped in history

Lincoln has been named one of the finest historic cities in Europe. The Cathedral Quarter not only boasts one of the finest examples of medieval architecture in the breath-taking Cathedral, but also Lincoln Castle and the Bishop's Palace. These world class attractions are located in the cobbled streets of Lincoln's Bailgate, where independent boutiques line the twisted streets and musicians, market stalls and café owners exchange greetings with customers, visitors and residents.

Brimming with life

Complementing Lincoln's rich history and heritage is its vibrant waterfront, Cultural Quarter and High Street shopping. Packed with shops, venues, bars and restaurants and a lively marina, this is a side to Lincoln that is lesser known. The annual events and festival programme means there is nearly always something going on in the city, with great music gigs, stand-up comedy and much more.
