    Amazingly beautiful scenery and such amazing history well explained by Dieter, he explains parts that a child might not know making it very kid friendly. We went into the prison and found it absolutely fascinating. They had plenty of activities to keep children engaged and all the staff were very friendly.

    We had an extremely knowledgeable and entertaining guide. It was a well set out, beautifully maintained and sobering museum.

    The two volunteer ladies were so very helpful and informative allowing us to have the best possible experience at this museum and make the most of our first trip to Lincoln! This museum is a must see and is absolutely free but worth any donation you can give… there was more to see and learn as it is jam packed with historical artefacts than what you pay for at the castle and the friendly welcome is second to none! It is a must see!

    This very historic street leads from the riverside area of the town up to the cathedral and castle on the hill. This street is said to contain some of the oldest buildings in Britain.
    It’s certainly lives up to its name and I would suggest taking a tea or coffee break halfway up. Going down is not much easier.

    This museum has been on my to do list for a few years. The Heritage Centre celebrates the history of RAF Scampton and the famous 617 Dam Busters squadron, which is still active, but now based at a different station.
    The centre is staffed by mainly ex-RAF service people and very much benefits from their passion for the subject and sense of duty and history. There were some great insights and anecdotes along the way which bring the service and those who served in it to life! The sacrifices made by very young men become even more poignant.
    I was sad to hear the the airfield has been sold and that the future of the Heritage Centre is uncertain. Given that the Dam Busters is one of the most famous squadrons and unique missions that the RAF has ever carried out, a way must be found to preserve as much of the extensive and historical collection as possible, as well as Guy Gibson's office and other parts of the hangar.
    Visits, where possible have to be arranged in advance for security reasons, see the RAF Scampton web page.

    We stopped off here for a picnic whilst staying locally. The playground was very busy with it being half term but we sat for a picnic. Sadly it was quite a focal point for local wasps no matter if we were at the toilet block or sat on a picnic bench so we retreated to the car to eat.
    Some parts of the park look quite tired and neglected like the sensory garden but the squirrels, ducks and other wildlife were ever present. The squirrels were as tame as ever, its a shame people continually ignore the signs asking not to feed the ducks bread.
    A huge plus is the free parking available and overflow carpark just across the road making it a very cheap and fun day out for the family.

    A great range of artefacts covering two thousand years of Lincoln’s history. Of special note is the Robot which not only told you about many of the artefacts but also took you to them !

    We stop off here on our way from fishing trips further south. We have breakfast and I have to say, you would struggle to get a better breakfast anywhere. Lovely quality food, excellently cooked and presented.

    Popped in for some souvenirs of our trip which were reasonably priced. Staff were very helpful and friendly. There is also a very useful array of leaflets maps and so on for local visitors to help themselves to.

    What an unexpected delight was our visit to Lincoln Guildhall. Our guide Andrew was very welcoming and guided us on a very enjoyable experience. His knowledge of the history of Lincoln and the Guidhall was both excellent and entertaining in his presentation. It is truly a remarkable place well worth a visit if only to see the Royal Charters and the treasures, some going back nearly a thousand years.

    Myself and my daughter had the privilege of seeing a Jamie marcus production of this years panto aladdin at the drill Hall Lincoln. We have to say it was the best panto we have seen in a long time, from start to finish it was funny fast moving and the music and lighting were amazing nice to see live music and such talented actors, singers and crew who put this show together, front of house staff were amazing and a very reasonably priced bar. I can't recommend this pantomime enough get yourselves that and have a fantastic time. #lincolnsbestpanto

    This is not just a museum for old busses most of the exhibits are fully serviced road worthy exhibits . It's not just busses either but cars and various other forms of road transport all renovated to a very high standard.
    Staff are friendly and only too pleased to explain the detail of any of the exhibits. This place is a little gem but only open Sunday afternoon s at the moment following the covid restrictions.
    Plenty of examples of Lincoln busses and other rare vehicles .
    If you are a bus enthusiast you really need to be here if you are not it's still a great way to spend an hour or so on a Sunday afternoon.
