Make the most of your visit to Lincoln

As part of your visit to Lincoln, we strongly encourage you to take time to visit the historic attractions of the city.  After marking the 800th anniversary of Magna Carta last year with a new exhibition for Lincoln’s historic copy in the Castle, this year sees a number of events to make 100 years since some of the bloodiest battles of WW1.  In particular, the poppy wave, originally situated at the Tower of London, will be in Lincoln Castle over the summer.  More details of this and other attractions and events can be found on Visit Lincoln’s website:
