Set aside a few hours to explore the medieval Lincoln Castle, which was built by William the Conqueror in 1068. The castle is home to one of the four original copies of the Magna Carta, which dates back to 1215. You can visit the austere, well-preserved Victorian Prison, and enjoy panoramic views over the city as you walk around the entire circumference of the castle's medieval walls.
For shopping in historic surroundings, visit Bailgate in the city's Cathedral Quarter, just over a mile from the hotel. Explore the cobblestone streets and charming, independent boutiques selling books, flowers and handicrafts, surrounded by the remains of medieval Lincoln. Take a break for a coffee or a bite to eat in one of the area's cafés or restaurants.
Don't Go Home Without
Towering over the city, the striking Lincoln Cathedral dates from the 11th century. After being damaged by an earthquake, the cathedral was reconstructed in the Gothic style with pointed arches and flying buttresses facilitating the addition of large stained glass windows. Guided tours are included with the price of admission. Book ahead for the popular roof and tower tours.
The Walk and Ride Steep Hill shuttle bus service connects Lincoln High Street with the Cathedral Quarter. It's a great way to explore the charming Steep Hill without having to climb up the cobbled streets yourself. Tickets can be purchased on the bus, which stops at a number of key locations around town. Buy a full-day ticket so you can jump on and off the bus as often as you like.
