Exploring Lincoln

Lincoln is a vibrant, ancient city, with a wealth of history, shopping and leisure opportunities in a compact setting. Ideal for the weekend leisure guest, busy executive in need of some down time, romantic getaway or culture buff, Lincoln has it all.

Our medieval city has an eclectic array of unique independent shops, just a stone’s throw from the White Hart. Nearby is spectacular countryside, a range of excellent golf courses and health and leisure facilities. And of course, our magnificent Cathedral and meandering streets are steeped in history.
