One of the classic views of the cathedral, across Castle Square and beyond Exchequer Gate. This square is the main hub of this part of the city, leading to the Castle, the Cathedral, Bailgate and Steep Hill. There are many pubs, cafes & restaurants near here. The Magna Carta pub to the right as you look is quite nice, but there are some really good places in Bailgate, round to the left here as you look.
Ignore that guy trying to hog the picture!
Favorite thing: Lincoln cathedral is the 3rd largest in Britain. It was completed around 1092 and it's position at the top of a hill means it dominates the whole city and the surrounding plains.
Favorite thing: The Medieval Bishop's Palace, walled former residence of the Bishop of Lincoln, now undergoing renovation, and landscaping of its gardens.
Favorite thing: Potter Gate, one of the old gates of the walled city. Just opposite was a nice pub with a large beer garden, the Adam & Eve.
Favorite thing: The poet Alfred, Lord Tennyson is associated with Lincoln and his statue stands in the grounds of the cathedral.
Favorite thing: But from this side you can see it's a bridge, and especially as Witham pleasure boat sails under it. This boat is a preserved veteran of the Dunkirk evacuation.
Favorite thing: This is the oldest bridge in Britain with buildings on it (there's a lot of 'oldest in Britain' in Lincoln). From here it doesn't look like a bridge, just like any other street...
Favorite thing: The Norman House, home of Aaron The Jew. Built in 1170 it is the oldest surviving house in Britain. Aaron was a money lender who lent to both the Archbishop Canterbury and the King of Scotland!
Favorite thing: Susan outside the sweetie shop, and looking rather mischeivious! Maybe she tried to sneak in when I wasn't looking!
Favorite thing: A peep inside the gates of Lincoln Castle. We didn't go in, not enough time and anyway, way too nice a day. Much better to be out looking at the rest of the city.
