A well stocked tourist information centre located at the top of steep hill, in between the castle and cathedral. Picked up all information leaflets required and a few gifts for family. Found staff to be very helpful, they do not rush you away but make sure they fully answer all your enquires to your satisfaction!

A very good visitor and Information centre, helpful staff with knowledge of local attractions, also accomodation available in the area. The centre is located between the castle and cathedral. The half timbered building is well worth a photo!

Located at the very top of Steep Hill in a beautiful building, the information center is a good first stop to make. The staff were knowledgeable and informative and were very pleasant. We asked about antique stores, and although not abundant in Lincoln, they recommended a couple nearby. You can purchase souvenirs here also.

The Visitor Information Centre is located between the Cathedral and the Castle, so you have no excuse not to drop in and be filled with information given by very gracious employees - and you can buy nice souvenirs, too!

I was planning a visit to Lincoln from our Twin Town in German. The Magna Carta and the new castle facilities were of great interest. The staff at the Information centre were very helpful and enabled us, with the help of the excellent Castle Staff to make the day a great success

we visited whilst passing mainly to look at the beautiful building, but noticed that the shop was well stocked and there were plenty of staff on hand. The only thing I thought was strange was that London souvenirs were on sale here

Very friendly and helpful staff who offered visiting suggestions for our long weekend. A great range of things for sale. Lovely local postcards. Get yourself a map to track the Barons if you stay before the end of September. They are delightful !

Has all the information to answer any questions. Sadly the staff on quite a few occasions were more interested in chatting with the locals that serving the Visitors. The locals on the street were much more accommodating and fascinating to talk to.

The staff here are very helpful and friendly and there is a wealth of information on Lincoln and the surrounding area, this tourist information centre is a credit to the Lincoln tourist organisation. Call in here for all the information that you require and take away as many leaflets as you need - excellent service.
