Established as one of the best hotels in the city of Lincoln, the White Hart Hotel has so much to offer. The past few years have seen major renovations on the ground floor integrating contemporary styling with some of the hotel's original features.
Lincoln began life as a Roman fortress town, after the conquering of Lincolnshire in 48 AD. The derivation of the word Lincoln comes from the word ‘lindo’, meaning pool in the Celtic language, and so the Romans called the new town Lindum Colonia (after the Romans left, the name Lindum was corrupted to Lindon then finally to Lincoln). Opening in the 14th Century as a coaching inn, the White Hart Hotel has remained in business for over 600 years.
Located in the oldest part of Lincoln, the Cathedral Quarter, the building is situated between the 900 year old Norman Castle, built in 1068 by William the Conqueror, and Lincoln’s Medieval Cathedral, which dates back to 1072.
The White Hart Hotel is situated on Bailgate - an ancient street that now offers a very unique and diverse range of boutique shops, catering for a range of tastes.
The shops on the Bailgate are all locally owned and each of them have their own individuality.
They are open Monday to Saturday, although times may vary. A number of these shops operate less hours than the national chains and some are closed on Sundays.
There is also a good range of restaurants, cafés and pubs along and around Bailgate, offering a range of different cuisine such as contemporary Indian, Spicy Thai, Chinese, Italian, Mexican and traditional English.
