Weekend in Lincoln





I spent a lovely weekend in Lincoln with my sisters.  This was my first visit to this interesting city and would not hesitate to recommend a trip to people of all age groups.  The cathedral and castle are reached by a very steep hill, aptly named Steep Hill.  We got the free bus to the top but walked back down which allowed us to browse in the interesting, specialist food and clothes shops.

Selfishly, I am not giving a full review as I may submit a travel review.  However, here a few pictures:

 This cafe was on the oldest bridge with buildings on in UK

 The Glory Hole where the River Witham flows beneath

 Lovely mobile toilets near castle.  Flowers are a trompe d'oeil

 A former synagogue and the oldest stone house in England


 Bike Fest at the waterfront with live music and hundreds of bikes.  Lots of cafes with tables outside giving it a real holiday atmosphere.

 From the other side of Brayford Pool, a natural pond which the Romans made deeper.  Our hotel is opposite.
 View from my room at the Holiday Inn.

  1. You had the perfect weather for what really looks like a great weekend. The trompe l'oeil on the facade of those mobile toilets could have fooled me!

  4. If you're sending photos with your article those lovely blue skies should help you to get an acceptance. (I remember trudging around Lincoln in the pouring rain!)

    1. There's lots to see and do. It could be the basis of another historical novel for you!
