How far us it from Manchester Airport to Lincoln Please

by Sinkers

Hi, looking for some help, we are flying to the UK arriving at possibly Manchester Airport which I think is the closest Airport to Lincoln that receives International flights, can anybody let me know how far is it from Manchester Airport to Lincoln?
Also what would be the best way to get there, ie - one way car rental, taxi etc and the approx cost.
Thanks so much
Suzanne

Can't give you the exact distance, but it's quite a way. There are trains from Manchester Airport to Lincoln, quite frequently. Takes around 2 and a half hours, although you'll have to change at least once. www.nationalrail.co.uk for timetables and fares, www.thetrainline.com for ticket purchase if you don't want to get one from the station on arrival (not a problem, but sometimes you can get cheape fares in advance). Will cost around 50GBP return per person.

There may be a coach (www.nationalexpress.com) which will be cheaper but take far longer.

A taxi will cost a fortune, so is not an option imo. If you wanted to explore this option, you would have to search for and contact individual providers to get a quote and book in advance. Same applies to car hire. For a one-way trip you'll have to use the biggest firms (e.g. Hertz) and they will be pricey. Also, will you really want to navigate your way out of Manchester and across to Lincoln (at least 2 hours, I should think, probably more)when you've just arrived?

Hope this helps a bit.

It's about 100 miles from Manchester Airport to Lincoln, so I wouldn't recommend a taxi and one-way car rental is not usually offered in the UK.

I would recommend going by train. There is a station at Manchester Airport (http://www.manchesterairport.co.uk) from which you can connect to the UK's national rail network. The journey should take around 2 to 2.5 hours (not something you'll want to hear after a long flight, I know)

For more planning on the train side try www.thetrainline.com. You don't have to buy but it's a useful planning resource. Just specify your departure station as 'Manchester Airport' as the are other stations in Manchester.

Good luck.

the exact distance is 98.9 miles!
I've looked up the same thing. Check out mapquest on the net (not sure of the address, just type it into google)
One way car rental is offered by some car companies for 35 pounds. Train takes more than an hour, car should take less than one. According to mapquest.

Doubt you'd be far outside Manchester in an hour! Travelling 100 miles, especially cross-country, usually takes at least an hour and a half (unless all motorway, even then not guaranteed). Much also depends on the time of day/ volume of traffic. If you are going to drive, expect to take at least a couple of hours, allowing for navigation/ getting used to roads etc.

Travel Tips for Lincoln

Steep Hill

by iwys

In Medieval times Steep Hill was named Micklegate. The Roman Ermine Street ran just to the left of the current street, but you can still see one side of the Roman archway that stood at the southern end of the city. The street was given its current name in the eighteenth century and it really is a steep hill, as you will find if you walk all of the way up it.

Magna Carta

by iwys

One of the four original Magna Cartas is kept inside Lincoln Castle. This was England's first "constitution", which a group pf powerful barons forced King John to agree to, at Runnymede, in 1215. Hugh, the Bishop of Lincoln, was present at its signing.

You can see it, but you are not allowed to photograph it. The same rule applies at Salisbury Cathedral, where one of the other originals is on display. The remaining two are kept in the British Library in London.There is a copy in a glass case on the wall, just before the exit, and nobody seems to mind if you photograph that. The original doesn't have the seal or the crests all around the border.

If you want to read the full text of the Magna Carta, click on the link below:

The Roman Forum

by iwys

The Forum was the civic cente of the Roman colony of Lindum Colonia. built in the 2nd and 3rd centuries on the site of an earlier wooden fortress. It was an impressive paved square, surrrounded by covered walkways on all four sides, with shops, offices and shrines. Today, you can just see some sections of wall that have been excavated and fenced off.

It is next to the big Westgate car park.

The Original Lincoln Ghost Walk Tour

by supercarys

This Ghost Walk is an extremely interesting look at Lincoln's rich history. Lasting for about an hour, this tour runs rain, hail or ... clear night.

Each of the different guides has something a little different to tell depending on their own knowledge, but go to the same places. I went twice - the first time it was raining so hard that my teeth started chattering. Undaunted, the woman continued with the tour, but we scurried off to a pub to warm up and dry off!

The tour runs every Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 7pm from the Information Centre - at the top of Steep Hill in between the castle and the cathedral.

Cost is £4.00 for Adults, and £2.00 for Children under 12

The Collection

by leics

New art & archaeology museum, near Steep Hill and incorporating the Usher building. Hundreds of artefacts from prehistory to Norman, well-displayed and with lots of hands-on activities and interactive screens for children (or grown-up children!).

The entrance has a huge soundwall installation by artist Adinda van't Klooster.....an amazing (and slightly weird) experience, impossible to describe in this limited space.

The cafe is rather pleasant too, with truly excellent cherry & walnut scones; mine were so freshly-baked they were still warm.
