  • Historical sites: Lincoln Cathedral can be seen for miles around and is the most prominent landmark in the city. Climbing the Bishops Palace gatehouse tower gives you a panoramic view of the Cathedral, city and surrounding countryside. Lincoln Castle, built over 900 years ago, houses one of the few remaining original copies of the Magna Carta.
  • Ghost walks: If you are feeling brave, you will find ghost walks at Brigg, Epworth or Barton. These ghost tours are all based on true, but sometimes gruesome, events in the local area.
