Visited on a very rainy day to have lunch. Had already looked at the menu on line and went for the small plates option. Each plate was around £5-6. We plumped for 2 each of the belly pork and chicken wings. Also ordered the skin on chips just to round the meal off. The small plates were served with really tasty side salads and slaws. The kimchi slaw was particularly nice and certainly had a kick. Meal was delicious and well presented. Service was friendly and very efficient. Price was good value for money, especially when you consider it’s the Bail area of Lincoln. Would definitely recommend and we will certainly visit again. For those of you who like things like this ..... ladies toilets very clean.....

The Guildhall is the "official home" of the Mayor and occupies the whole of the second floor of the Stonebow. Access to this historic building is via the large double oak doors on the East Wing of the building on Saltergate and is of 15th and 16th century. On a visit you can walk through the Council Chamber, sit in the Mayor's chair and hear some of the tales of years gone by. The tour includes the old debtors prison which now houses some of the finest regalia in England beneath. Whilst in the Civic Insignia room, view the Royal Sword given to the City by Richard II, and the Mayor's Mace dated 1660, originally a defensive fighting weapon, but now carried before the Mayor on ceremonial occasions. See several chains of office, as well as the unique Mayor's posy ring which is only worn on two occasions: when being married to the City at the Annual Meeting and on the Mayor's "official" birthday a custom dating back to 1852. Read the many Royal Charters, the oldest granted by King Henry II (circa 1157) and the latest given in 1974 by Queen Elizabeth II. Also, the Guildhall's impressive Council Chamber is still used today for Full Council meetings. The Guildhall allows you to step back in time and view it's unique and historic building, as well as many significant items on display.
Very engaging and informative guided tour of Lincoln's Guildhall, including it's hidden treasures. The guide, Richard, has a remarkable breadth of knowledge about the history of Lincoln and it's governance through the ages. Well worth a visit.

I first discovered the shop in 1996 while visiting Lincoln and its surroundings. At the time, it was quite small but full to the brim of exciting teas. As a tea lover, I couldn’t wait to try various blends and types so bought several and brought them home to Belgium. I was amazed at the quality and started ordering tea from the shop on a nearly yearly basis. I later moved to Canada and kept ordering tea from Imperial Teas as it was impossible to find anything remotely close to the outstanding quality of their products. I will be moving back to Europe this year and look forward to visiting Lincoln again and having tea at the new premises. Throughout these 24 years, staff has always been most kind and helpful. Also looking forward to their new website.

Red Panda Gaming Café has an extensive boardgame library for you to play, along with great hot drinks, tasty cakes and a BYOB policy! :) We work of a table rental of £5 an hour for a table, up to a max of 6 people on a table! That’s less than a pound a head per hour for a full table!

'I have always held and proposed against all comers to maintain that the Cathedral of Lincoln is out and out the most precious piece of architecture in the British Isles' - John Ruskin Lincoln Cathedral was for almost 300 years the tallest building in the world. Yet, in spite of its size, it is filled with intricate detail. Remigius, the Bishop who built the earliest part of the Cathedral in the Norman style, came over with William the Conqueror. Later, in Lincoln Cathedral the architects of the gothic style perhaps reached the pinnacle of their art. Everywhere you look there is the most intricate detail, walls, roofs elaborated by the finest carving. From the time of the death of the saintly Bishop of Lincoln, Hugh of Avalon who so lovingly restored the Cathedral after an earthquake in the 12th century, thousands of people have come on pilgrimage to this place of pilgrimage, holiness and prayer. In 1215 another Hugh Bishop of Lincoln, Hugh of Wells, was present at Runnymede along with Lincolnshire's Cardinal Archbishop Stephen Langton. When King John agreed to the barons' demands, copies of Magna Carta were made and distributed to sheriffs and cathedrals throughout England. Lincoln Cathedral's Magna Carta is one of only four from the original distribution still in existence. It is the only one to bear the name of its city.
Tour guides are excellent and this is a beautiful place in every sense Helpful and welcoming staff Enjoyed the cafe and exhibits We went back on several occasions Roof tour and floor tour worthwhile and look for the light coming through the stained glass windows and reflecting on the floor and columns

Three great attractions. One great day out. Medieval Wall Walk. Victorian Prison. Magna Carta. Enjoy spectacular views across Lincolnshire from our completed Medieval Wall Walk. Visit the David P.J. Ross Magna Carta Vault and see one of only four remaining original Magna Carta along side the Charter of the Forest. Immerse yourself in the lives of prisoners and their daily routines in the Victorian Prison and see the unique separate system chapel. 1000 years of history - where it happened. Winter Opening Hours: 10:00 - 16:00 Summer Opening Hours: 10:00 - 17:00
The main purpose for us to go to the Lincoln Castle during our visit to Lincoln was to see the Magna Carter signed by King John in 1215 and the Charter of Forest with the seal of King Henry III appended in 1217. These two supremely historic documents can only be viewed together at the Lincoln Castle, with no equal worldwide! The jail, crown court building and castle grounds are quite interesting and walking on top of the castle walls offers panoramic views of the Town and surrounding countryside. This is a must visit Tourist Attraction in Lincoln!

My husband and I visited this great exhibition yesterday. If you can do the guided tour do so, it was fascinating, informative and well worth a visit to see the well presented displays, made all the more interesting because of the local connection. The Guy Gibson and the Dambusters are truly inspirational.
