Lincoln

Located in the east of England, the cathedral city of Lincoln is an ideal destination for a day trip or weekend break. Divided into two distinct areas by the geography of the land, the city's lower section sits alongside the River Witham. The upper area is dominated by Lincoln Cathedral and Lincoln Castle, both of which date back to the 11th century. Joining the upper and lower areas of Lincoln is Steep Hill, so named after its one in seven (14 percent) gradient. Along it you will find tea rooms and independent shops, as well as two Norman buildings, which give you the perfect excuse to stop and admire the view. The Visitor Information Centre is located in a beautiful 16th century house near the top of Steep Hill. Spend a few hours exploring the cathedral quarter, and then head back down to enjoy an evening stroll in the modern riverside area.
