Things to do in Lincoln

Lincoln may be small, but it still has lots going on. Just walking around the city centre itself is exciting, with its historical buildings and charming tearooms, but there’s lots going on in the suburbs for you to explore too.

Climb Steep Hill to Lincoln Cathedral

Steep Hill is – as you’d imagine – pretty steep, but it’s worth a climb to the top. Created by the Romans, it now houses cute tea rooms, quaint galleries, and local shops, but once you reach the top, you’ll be rewarded with the beautiful Lincoln Cathedral. Once the tallest building in the world from 1311 to 1549, its Gothic design is both impressive and imposing.

Wander around Hartsholme Country Park

For picturesque walks, there’s no better place to head to than Hartsholme Country Park. Situated over 200 acres, the reservoir offers waterside walks, with a pretty cast iron bridge, or you can discover wildlife in the woods.

Enjoy the festivities of the Christmas markets

One of the largest Christmas markets, typically taking place at the beginning of December, it attracts over 250,000 people over four days. Enjoy a backdrop of the gothic cathedral as you peruse the many stalls, enjoying a hotdog and a glass of gluhwein, as you buy cute trinkets and gifts.

Step back in time at the Museum of Lincolnshire Life

Housed in Victorian barracks, the Museum of Lincolnshire Life hosts nearly 250,000 objects, which show what life was like in the area from 1750 to present day, in addition to an interactive arts gallery. Entry is usually free, unless there are specific events on – make sure to see the star attraction, an authentic World War One tank called Daphne!

Stroll down Brayford Waterfront

The oldest inland harbour in England, it’s a great place to relax after a long day of shopping in the city centre, with lots of cafes and restaurants where you can stop and enjoy a drink and a bite to eat. If you want to enjoy the view from the water, then take a trip on the Brayford Belle, which operates from April to October.
