If you want to appreciate an architectural and cultural masterpiece without the rat-race then visit Lincoln Cathedral. The cathedral dominates the skyline of Lincoln and indeed most of the flat and fertile lowlands that surround the fine city of Lincoln.

Lincoln is a hidden jewel atop a hill with a wonderfully open and kind air about it, one of those rare places you feel better for just spending time in

This is one of the best Cathedral's in the country - only bested by York Minster & Westminster Cathedral. Its history is remarkable - and the architecture is not far behind it. Would highly recommend it as a place well worth visiting, plus having the added attraction of being located within one of the oldest cities within the UK (with... More

We were there on a very busy weekend, so we skipped the guided tours. Even so, there is lots to see and explore. This is such a beautiful Cathedral, and absolutely wonderful.

His did they ever manage to build these places all those years ago? Lincoln Cathedral is jaw droppingly beautiful. In fact, it's magnificent. Whatever your religious creed, you must visit the Cathedral

Lincoln Cathedral is a gem. It is worth joining one of the knowledgeable guides on a tour, and why not try a roof or tower tour if you don't mind steps!

If your Visiting Lincoln or even live in Lincoln, The Lincoln Cathedral is a must see, any time of day, it may get busier at weekends, There's lots of history and religion here, you could quite happily spend a few hours here. The gift shop and entrance fees are quite pricey but worth a see.

"Popped" in during a weekend visit to Lincoln Castle. I fortunately noticed the refectory. Realy beautiful place with excelent facilities. Can't think of a more pleasant walk to the toilet. Next time in Lincoln I will spend more having a good look around. There were two wedding groups on the lawn and it must have added to thier day.

Lincoln Cathedral is a stunning monument to the skill of medieval masonary. Both the ground and roof tour tours are well worth the time and highlight details and provide interesting anecdotes that would be missed by simply strolling through the cathedral by yourself.

What a beautiful and amazing Cathedral. Although the exterior is still under scaffolding, you can still see some of the Romanesque architecture on the outside. The audio guide is well worth the £1 you pay for it! I have been to many UK cathedrals, but this one is now one of my top ones. The chapter house is stunning, as... More
