Travel Tips for Lincoln

Jews House, dating from the...

by steventilly

Jews House, dating from the 12th century. Lincoln had one of the oldest Jewish communities in Britain and some of their surviving houses here in Lincoln are the oldest remaining domestic buildings in the country.

Go out and see the pretty lights

by sourbugger

On the townside of Brayford pool, just a 10 minute walk from the central shopping area are a number of new buildings connected with the University of Lincoln.

Although perhaps not holding the highest academic reputation, it's architecture is impressive. The Library building in particular has cleverly converted one of the old railway warehouse building to a new use. Much of the old signage painted on the outside of the building has been retained.

My favourite feature is however, the new staircase at the side of the building, which becomes a kind of modern art installation at night as various coloured lights weave various patterns from under the stairwells.

Lincoln Castle

by Sjalen

Also up on the hill (of course) is the castle which is fun to visit for several reasons. You get a great view both of the cathedral and the Lincolnshire countryside from its walls and towers for a start (see general tip). Secondly, the museum inside has one of the few original Magna Cartas for those of you interested in English history. History buffs might also be interested in the fact that Edward I's wife Eleonor died here and he gave orders to erect Eleonor crosses everywhere her body rested on the way to the funeral in London (so he seemed to have loved someone even if it wasn't the Scots and Welsh...) The last cross became Charing Cross in London. Finally, the lawns inside the castle often host National Heritage or other organisations' medieval activities such as jousting during summer.

University of Lincoln

by supercarys

The University of Lincoln is quite a new uni at only ten years old (began 1996). From an academic point of view, the lecturers and tutors know what they are doing and are generally extremely approachable.

The technology is very up to date and you have access to a lot of resources.

The student life is active - you can join sporting teams, social clubs, there are bars and clubs on site. There is very cheap food available on campus too - you can get a nice flilling, healthy meal for a few quid.

The administration is terrible. The enrollment process is long drawn out and a frustrating experience. Almost entirely completed in person rather than taking advantage of the internet as a tool to help in this very busy time, most of the administration people will send you to another department if you have a problem and a relatively simple question could have you walking around for hours with no result at the end. As an international student I was completely in the dark and felt unwelcome.

The assessments are marked far more harshly than in Australia (or America, I've heard) It is extremely difficult to get high marks but the fail mark is also lower. You may have a rude shock before you realise this!

The buildings are well designed but the university itself is split into quarters by the railway line and a major road which makes navigation a little difficult for newbies! You soon get used to it though.

Tennyson was here

by sourbugger

"I stood upon the Mountain which o'erlooks
The narrow seas, whose rapid interval
Parts Afric from green Europe, when the Sun
Had fall'n below th' Atlantick, and above
The silent Heavens were blench'd with faery light"

These are the opening lines of the poem 'Timbucktoo'. I'm not surprised he looked for more exoctic sites, after all he was a Linconshire man through and through.

Many of his personal effects and poems can be found in the Usher Gallery, now renamed 'The Collection'.

The museum has had a major make-over and contains good collection relating to Lincolnshire, especially in the areas of Art and Archaelogy.
