Really informative ghost tour around Lincoln. Met in front of the Cathedral and took about 50mins to drive around with constant ghost stories of the sights and buildings of Lincoln. A lovely Halloween treat.

Oh dear, sorry you didn't enjoy the ghost tour. These tours are led by a expert ghost guide, rather than an expert in the local area; for the local facts and details, you will prefer a ride on the regular open-top sightseeing tour during the...More

We were in Lincoln for a day only and yet we learned so much about its history by listening to the guide's explanations and stories as the double decker bus took us through its narrow streets. Lincoln was quite a centre in Roman times and...More

Thanks for your review, Albert. I'm glad you enjoyed the tour guide's stories (Lincoln certainly has great heritage when 'recent history' was 100 years ago!) and indeed the whole city!

We loved our tour on the open topped bus. We were blessed with good weather on our trip which made things even better. The guide was great and had some quirky tales to tell on the way around.

Both of these destinations have been considered but neither are suitable at this moment in time for the regular tour. However we have run private hires to IBCC which you could do if you wanted.

Dogs are allowed on the tour bus at the driver's discretion - generally there is no problem! If your dog is a large breed it may have to stay on the bottom deck.

Hi Julia, no the concession pass is not accepted. You would need to book an adult ticket.
