Lincoln developed from the Roman town of Lindum Colonia, which developed from an Iron Age settlement. Lincoln’s major landmarks are Lincoln Cathedral, a fine example of English Gothic architecture, and Lincoln Castle, an 11th-century Norman castle. The city is also home to the University of Lincoln and Bishop Grosseteste University. Lincoln is situated in a gap in the Lincoln Cliff 141 miles (227 kilometres) north of London, at an elevation of 20.4 metres (66.9 feet) above sea level by the River Witham, stretching up to 75 metres (246.1 feet) above sea level in the uphill area around the cathedral.

The Lincolnshire Wolds Railway is a great day out for all the family with FREE admission and parking. Take a journey on one of the working steam trains or stop off at the Steaming Kettle Buffet for a bite to eat whilst the little ones run off some energy in the play area.
Over the years, the Lincolnshire Wolds Railway has built up a collection of artefacts which all contribute to our understanding of the development of the railways in the region. The extension of the station building now includes a dedicated museum area which has enabled them to display the unique collection of local railway memorabilia going back over 150 years.
In addition to the artefacts on display, the museum has archive photographs and newspaper reports from events which have taken place on the railway. The museum is open on Running Days and admission is free!

Experience the sights, sounds, and smells of Great Grimsby as the ‘world’s premier fishing port’ at their award-winning attraction. Fishing has often been described as one of the toughest jobs in the world. Discover life for British trawlermen in a job described as ‘the most dangerous peacetime occupation in the UK’ or climb aboard the historic ‘Ross Tiger’ trawler to experience the conditions aboard one of the earliest surviving diesel side-trawlers.
The Grimsby fishing heritage centre aims to take you back 60 years to discover life for trawlermen and their families, both at home and at sea. Take along the whole family and experience the sights, sounds, smells, and even the movements of life as a 1950s trawlerman. The beautifully crafted interactive displays are either carefully recreated or made from original trawler fixtures and fittings, accurately reassembled within the attraction.
