An amazing site from all over the city. We visited just as the afternoon light shone through the stained glass windows shining rainbows onto the pillars. Magical.

Bought a joint ticket to see both cathedral and castle - great value. Cathedral is immense and spectacular. A place of beauty, full of history and faith.

More photographer-friendly than most English cathdrals and spectacular to photograph. Be sure to buy the guide book and map in order to understand the chronology of the building which is rather complex. The natural light falling on the interior can be spectacular. The cafe is...More

One of the most beautiful cathedrals I've ever seen. Absolutely awe inspiring architecture - how this enormous structure was built by hand is beyond imagination. The guided tour was both informative and entertaining. Our guide pointed out things we'd never have noticed on our own...More

Well worth a visit if you are going to Lincoln and hard to miss as it dominates the skyline. The only downside was the guide who was very softly spoken and with the organ playing it was difficult to hear what he was saying.

Absolutely breathtaking!!!!! Walking around the cathedral during choir practice is magical! Makes you feel like you’re in a movie. I can’t wait to return and attend the singing and service.

My first time here and we had a lovely guide who was interesting and well informed. We were a small group which gave plenty of scope for questions.

Yes there were clergy there. Service about to start in choir. Beautiful chapel to pray in and light candles. You could leave prayer requests which are prayed for every Wednesday. Not touristy at all. It’s lovely.
