grat example of a real English Cathedral, everything is on a huge scale, massive walls, amazing spires, stunning stained glass windows, a calm interior and a commanding position towering over the city, you can see it for miles. see if you can find the Lincoln Imp carved on the building ! Also a pair of Pergrine Falcons were nesting there... More

The cathedral is well worth a visit. Take a free guided tour if you have time. It is well worth it. Our guide was very informative and knowledgeable and friendly with it. On our next visit we hop[e to go up the tower and on the roof which we did not have time for on this occasion.

We took a roof tour of Lincoln cathedral in July 2014. What a fantastic tour. The guide was very friendly and very confident with his history. He looked as though he defiantly loved his job.

I was there in 2009. This is the most beautiful and biggest cathedral I've been to so far. Worth visiting. Thinking to go there again.
