A very helpful and friendly office/shop where the staff are friendly and efficient. Most of your queries can be sorted with a quick visit. Also, some very nice souvenirs to be had to remember your visit to Lincoln.

Plenty of info for the visitor, they are aware of the poor visitor signage (unreadable "finger posts") and poor directions to car parks, but blame the council. Lincoln is not tourist friendly, car park charges are very high, and attractions expensive to visit, with the notable exception of Museum of Lincolnshire Life, if you can find it!!

A must if you are in Lincoln, staff extremely helpful, if you are going to visit cathedral and castle you can get a special ticket, cheaper than paying separately. Leaflets souveniers
