Situated here in the heart of Lincoln, we never cease to be delighted by the beauty of the architecture and contrasts that abound. The division between old and new is stark, with honey coloured buildings of old linked by cobble stoned streets to the contemporary, modern architecture of art galleries, shopping centres and new buildings.

No visit to Lincoln would be complete without entering the hallowed cathedral. One of the greatest buildings in the world, the Cathedral Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Lincoln is built of local limestone and has three towers that aside from their beauty, contain a wealth of detailed carvings in wood and stone. For historians and the merely curious, Lincoln Cathedral will delight with Medieval and Victorian glass that fills the windows, a superbly preserved Chapter House and library and astonishing features within the architecture that will continue to impress with every glance. Largely built in the 13thC, it retains a Norman core to the west front and is one of the earliest completed Gothic cathedrals.

Beyond the city too are pleasures to be had, with the Lincolnshire countryside offering quaint villages and towns to explore, cycle routes, pony trekking, breathtaking walks, stunning natural scenery and historic buildings and sites. There are in excess of 150 Gardens and Nurseries to be explored as well as the birthplace of the poet Alfred Tennyson and the former home of Sir Issac Newton, fresh local produce to be enjoyed from Lincolnshire's weekly markets and you won’t want to leave without sampling the famous Lincolnshire sausages on offer.
