With a settlement being recorded on what is now known as Lincoln since the Iron Age the town is a place steeped in history, and there's evidence of this on show wherever you look. From examples of original Roman bridges to the grandeur of Lincoln Cathedral, as well as intact medieval and Georgian buildings, there are relics everywhere from the town's rich heritage as well as a wealth of museums and attractions.
That is not to say that this is a town living in the past. Indeed, its shopping districts and excellent selection of restaurants and bars indicate that it is very much in the 21st Century, and with events taking place throughout the year such as the famous Christmas Market, there is always something to do. Sports fans will find that the city is very much a football city, with both mens and ladies teams strongly represented. But for something a bit different, why not check out the Roller Derby for some full-contact, high-adrenaline action and cheer local lasses the Lincolnshire Bombers on to victory?
Beyond Lincoln's boundaries there is also much to see, with Nottingham, Sheffield and Derby to the west and the Lincolnshire coast to the east. The area is also ideal for those who like to get outdoors, with plenty on offer for ramblers, cyclists, golfers and more.
