Travel Tips for Lincoln

A lovely view of St. Marks...

by steventilly

A lovely view of St. Marks Square. Not St Marks Square Venice of course, but Lincoln's equivalent. It's right down the high street across the railway line, part of a new shopping development and with a couple of nice pubs too.

King George III

by iwys

The bust of King George III, which stands in the grounds of Lincoln Castle was originally placed on top of Dunstan Pillar, just outside the city. He was also known as Mad King George and the sculptor has made him look wonderfully eccentric: like a character out of Alice in Wonderland.

Climb the cobbled incline...

by sourbugger

The pedestrianised road up to the Cathedral and castle from the town /shopping area is known as 'Steep hill'.

This masterpiece of naming must have taken ages to dream up, although to be fair the average Lincolnshire resident knows very little about gradients -most of the county is a flat as a pancake.

If this street was nearer London it would be awash with tourists all year, but it can noramally be explored in relative comfort. All the shops, galleries cafes and restaurants are centred around this cobbled incline.

Except for the castle and Cathedral, virtually anything else of interest to the tourist will be here.

Many people prefer to walk straight up the hill, to allow them plenty of time to saunter down at their own pace.

Not to be missed.

Leigh-Pemberton House

by iwys

Leigh-Pemberton House at the corner of Bailgate and Castle Hill is a large, half-timbered merchant's house, built in 1543. It now houses the Tourist Information Office.

In the late seventeenth century it was called the Ironmonger's Arms. From 1899 to 1979 it was used as a bank. Sir Robert Leigh-Pemberton was the chairman of the Nat West Bank and Governor of the Bank of England. In 1979, the Nat West Bank presented the building to the dean and chapter of Lincoln.

Lincoln Cathedral and the Da Vinci code

by sourbugger

Westminster cathedral refused permission for the 'Da Vinci' code to be filmed there. Lincoln came to the rescue, allowing it's chapter house to 'double' for Westminster. This of course had nothing to do with the reported £100,000 the filmakers paid.

Not everyone was happy with the arrangement : Sister Mary Michael, a Catholic nun, conducted a solitary vigil outside in protest against the " blasphemous use of a Holy place to film a book of heresy". No standing on the fence there then.

The artwork that was added to the walls still remains at present - but I don't know if it will remain as a permanent feature.

Interestingly, Dan Green (author of Da Vinces pile of claptrap) , has said that the statue of Alfred Lord Tennyson (poet and leading Priory of Sion member), maybe a pointer to the location of where Mary Magdalene is buried - in Lincoln Cathedral itself. Utter cobblers.
