Before you travel to Lincoln by train - good to know!

Although the cathedral and the merchants' houses of the medieval Upper Town tend to hog most of the attention, Lincoln also boasts an attractive waterfront area, where old warehouses have been converted into hotels and bars, creating a relaxed space for canal boats and yachts, where visitors can enjoy the views over a drink. The historic center of Lincoln is fairly compact and can be negotiated on foot, although the climb to the cathedral can be surprisingly steep. Local buses are useful for getting around the city and exploring the rural villages of Lincolnshire.
