Discover Bailgate, the historical heart of Lincoln

With its rich past and spectacular setting, Bailgate is a great place to start exploring the city of Lincoln. Whether you're on a guided tour or just casually wandering in the area, you’re sure to be fascinated Bailgate's quirky shops and restaurants, quaint cobbled streets and York stone pathways.

Lincoln Cathedral, constructed from 1088 onwards and is often heralded as one of the finest examples of Gothic architecture in Britain, and is one of the must-see places when visiting this richly historic city. Inside the cathedral, be sure to visit the Medieval and Wren libraries, and keep a keen eye out for the Lincoln Imp, the city’s symbol, hiding high amongst the fine masonry. The guided tours included in the entry fee offer insights into the history of the building. During the summer months, you are able to view the city from the tower.

October; anything on?

It’s been really nice weather this week down in Maidenhead, where i’m stopping at the moment. Unseasonably nice for the time of year, which got me thinking about day trips and things to do in the coming month.

So I checked out the ‘what’s on’ section of the website for October, and wow, what a cracking month for real ‘one-off’ events.
