Travel Tips for Lincoln

Looking down the top part of...

by steventilly

Looking down the top part of Steep Hill in Lincoln. This street leads from Castle Square down into the main part of the city. It is lined with lovely shops and old historic buildings. Some of the finest historic buildings in Lincoln are here.

Large Roman wall...........

by leics

Hidden away in west Bight (near the back of the castle) lies the largest standing section of Roman wall in the country. Originally part of Roman Lincoln's forum, it was wrongly named by 17th century antiquarian William Stukely, who thought it was part of a Roman mint. You can still see the putlog holes (for scaffolding).

Still a workplace

by sourbugger

Lincoln castle is very good value to visit at only £5.00 for an adult ticket. (£13.50 for a family). This includes a guided tour at set times, if you want to avail.

You will find a good exhibition about it's use as a prison up to Victorian times, including those on death row.

You will find an exhibition on the Magna Carta as well, although for more details see the tip on it.

You can also walk the walls, which is great for photography with impressive views over the surrounding city and pancake flat Lincolnshire countryside.

I like the fact that although the present castle has it's roots in Norman times, it has never ceased to be a working castle, rather than being 'preserved in aspic' like so many others. The largest building in the complex is actually the Crown Court for the area.

Nice little cafe too.

The Bishop's Eye

by iwys

The circular, stained glass window at the end of the south transept of Lincoln Cathedral is known as the Bishop's Eye. The window was built in 1320, but the stained glass now on view is made up from fragments of Medieval glass inserted in 1788. The bishop after whom the window is named is Bishop John Dalderby who died in 1320.

It is an incredibly beautiful window: even more beautiful than the larger East Window.

Lincoln Castle

by iwys

Lincoln Castle dates back to the 1068 when William the Conqueror ordered the construction of a fortress here. The mound that the Lucy Tower stands on was part of the original fortifications. The Lucy Tower itself and the East Gate were built in the twelfth century.

During the medieval period, the castle was the site of several battles.
