Lincoln Travel Guide

Q: Is there an any more relaxing holiday than speeding through the canals of England at 4MPH
A: Possibly not. Although frm recent experience, we would also thoroughly recommend exploring the unspoilt and uncrowded coastline of Pembrokeshire.

Virtual Tour of Historic Town Centre over Canal, Lincoln, United Kingdom
 Traveler Reviews and Information
Lois R says:
"When you stand on this lovely Lincoln city center bridge you are actually experiencing the old and the new which this historic, interesting city exhibits so well. Beside the canal there are really old, pretty buildings and some are newer - this is repeated in the types of shops. The higher you go up the hill the older the buildings become. One day I sat beside this bridge and wrapped all my Christmas presents bought in some of the varied shops which Lincoln offers, and then I posted them off overseas. I love that memory. Another lasting gem is of lots of stunning, brightly coloured flower baskets hanging on the side of the canal and dozens and dozens of white swans floating by. When I show this photo to friends back home in New Zealand they all say 'that is just how I imagine England to be'. From this more modern shopping focus on the flat you cross a busy, narrow street and start moving up the hill where there are some absolutely gorgeous, old black and white buildings. Then you come to Steep Hill and rightly named it is. It takes you a long time to get up to the top because the little shops on the narrow street are so cute and have a 'boutique' feel to them. They definitely demand a 'browse'. Actually you need a rest as it really is very precipitous. At the top it is all worth the effort as you can visit the magnificent, historic Lincoln Cathedral which is high on my list of favorite religious buildings in England. Nearby, and a little hidden, is Bishops Old Palace which is a ruin in a garden setting. Well worth the diversion. Great views out over Lincoln city from here. Also on this level is the Norman Castle built in 1068. It was a Victorian Prison and although I have not been inside it I believe it has the oldest Prison Chapel on the site. Lincoln city is so historic, visitors are most welcome and when you are there you feel this really is the heart of England..... ancient and modern, lots to do or just relax. I like to walk along the canal and spend time in the marina - lovely little pub there I remember well."

"Having lived in Lincoln most of my life and now having moved away I miss it terribly! The shopping is surprisingly good, with the best shops up steep hill (touristy - but unique). If you want a more modern upbeat scene though, try the Brayford."
