Lincoln Travel Guide

by our United Kingdom expert Terry Emery
Terry EmeryOne of England’s best preserved mediaeval towns, Lincoln boasts a Norman Castle, a Bishop’s Palace and an exceptionally fine walled Cathedral. The Cathedral holds one of just four remaining copies of Magna Carta, the Bishop having been a signatory in 1215. The Bailgate quarter, especially, is highly photogenic containing many ancient buildings and reached by the fascinating, though aptly named, Steep Hill. The city’s early prominence as one of the major Bishoprics was reinforced by its trading importance and by the large weaving industry – their favoured colour providing Robin Hood’s ‘Lincoln Green’. Lincoln is built around a sizeable natural lake, Brayford Pool, now a busy marina and lively tourist area with shops and restaurants.
