This ancient Cathedral, which dates back almost 1000 years is magnificent, standing majestically at the top of the hill overlooking Lincoln. The architecture is phenomenal and the acoustics resonant. A sanctuary for peace, reflection and prayer. Services are held at various times every day to which everyone is welcome. Visitors are obviously not required to attend though and most just... More

We enjoyed our visit to Lincoln Cathedral and I particularly liked the Stations of the Cross, absolutely beautiful. The Cathedral is a lovely peaceful place and we shall certainly visit again.

We did a roof top tour of the cathedral.Enjoyed every minute of it. You must have a head for heights. Barbara, our guide knows everything there is to know about the history of the Cathedral. Finish off our day by searching for the IMP hidden within the Cathedral.Highly recommended.

Worth seeing, get the joint ticket with the castle. Don't forget the Wren Library near the cafe and the cloisters

We were waiting for our time slot at a nearby restaurant, so what a stunning way to pass time, by walking around the inside and outside of a beautiful Cathedral. My personal interest in the Cathedral is the link to Bomber County - being a landmark for air crews.

Must be one of the wonders of British building. There is a lot to see but make sure you are there well before 3.00 p.m. as certain areas are closed off after this time. They have organised tours or you can go on your own. A moving experience.

One of the great cathedrals of England that it took me decades to get round to visiting. But well worth the trip and the time spent wandering around it. The combined ticket for the castle and cathedral is money well spent. There's a small cafe for welcome coffee and cake after wandering round this great building and taking in the... More
