Things to do in Lincoln, UK
Lincoln Cathedral stands proud and tall in Lincoln city and is most renowned for being once one of the tallest landmarks in the world.
Its intricate detailing is a testament to its extravagant beauty. It provides the perfect spot for those wanting to soak up some history, with regular tours of the Cathedral throughout the day.
If you’re feeling fit, why not challenge yourself to walk the 338 steps on the “tower tour,” or maybe a tour inside of the Cathedral is enough!
Keeping history alive, directly opposite the Cathedral, sits the magnificent Lincoln Castle.
Providing draw-dropping views of the Lincolnshire skyline. The castle takes you back to medieval Lincoln, showcasing a Victorian prison, outstanding architectural design, and the opportunity to learn some gruesome history.
Volunteers at the castle will often be dressed in traditional medieval clothing, which adds to the entire family’s experience.

Ellis Mill is breathtakingly stunning. Standing proud at the top of Lincoln Hill, Ellis Mill is the last mill standing, out of nine that once dominated this particular viewing point.
