Housed in a fabulous building.

The location is just right, in among some of the oldest buildings in Lincoln. Very interesting. Friendly and helpful staff.

The Visitor Center is in a beautiful Tudor building. They have a large assortment of local arts & crafts, along with brochures covering many nearby and distant attractions. The staff was incredibly friendly and informative. They helped us book our next room in Durham. The only problem with the place is that I'm not sure how you would get there... More

Very helpful staff, prices can be a little high for some of the things in there, but it's reasonable considering the area.

The visitor centre is located in a very historic building right between the castle and the cathedral at the top of Steep Hill and the staff are very friendly and helpful. Lots of information and a must for tourists.
