15 Best Places to Visit in Lincolnshire (England)

If you prefer countryside to be as remote and unspoiled as possible you’ll love Lincolnshire.

In the south the landscapes are flat, with wide open skies and polder farms growing flowers and vegetables.

The flatness is interrupted in the west by the Vales and in the centre by the Lincolnshire Wolds, rolling chalk and sandstone hills with the prettiest agricultural landscapes.

A lot of visitors come to the county for the coast, with its string of nostalgic seaside resorts.

But don’t neglect the towns, which have incredible churches and medieval halls and contain the birthplaces of world-changing historical personalities like Sir Isaac Newton.

Lincoln, England

An astounding cathedral city, Lincoln nestles in a gap in the Lincoln Edge, a long escarpment in western Lincolnshire.

The old city adapts to this steep topography, and most of the historical monuments are in the higher part, known as Uphill.

There’s masses of beautiful architecture on these winding streets, where Lincoln’s clergy and military elite once lived.

Lincoln Cathedral is an English gothic treasure, completed in the early-14th century and with supreme panoramas from its roof.

Lincoln Castle is one of England’s best-preserved Norman fortresses, and is rare in that it has two earthwork mottes.

There’s a gallery at the castle presenting one of only four surviving copies of the fabled Magna Carta, dating to 1215.
