The nearby impressive City of LINCOLN is steeped in 2,000 years of history, as you wander around you will see evidence of both Roman and Medieval periods as well as notable architecture left by the Tudors and Georgians. One of Europe's finest cathedrals is in Lincoln and sits on part of the site of a first-century Roman fortress high on the hill.
Close by is the Norman Castle built by William the Conqueror on the site of the former Roman fortress which dates from 1068. Walk along the walls of the Castle and enjoy the wonderful views across this handsome City.
