For short or long stays Lincoln England has a wide range of places on offer to suit all needs and budgets. Comfortable accommodation for overnight or longer stays is readily available either in the old part of the city or on the newer, revitalised waterfront.
The town can be split in half, the old and the new; the cathedral in the old town dates back to the 11th century. This part of Lincoln provides splendid views of the town and surrounding countryside. It is quite high in comparison to the lower part of the town with a steep ascent up to the cathedral and castle, so it may be worthwhile to check out which part of Lincoln you wish to be in. There is public transport and taxis between the two areas.
The old town of Lincoln has the cathedral and castle as its main tourist destinations and hotels in this area include the 1930’s Art Deco Charlotte House Hotel just opposite the castle and within easy walking distance to the cathedral.
The Lincoln Hotel again in the older part of the city has wonderful views of the cathedral and makes a convenient base to visit this part of the town. The White Hart Hotel in this historical quarter can be found on Bailgate and is well and truly amid all the delightful boutique specialist shops in this area.
The waterfront in Lincoln has had extensive work carried out on it in recent years, transforming the original docks into a stylish shopping center and ‘eateries’ haven. This is in the lower part of the city and the well known chain of Holiday Inns have their Holiday Inn Express in the business district just a short 10 minute walk to the shopping area. The Holiday Inn Hotel is on the Brayford Waterfront in the city center, amid the main shops, restaurants, cafes and public houses. The rooms are quite reasonable in price even in peak season.
Should you want to stay in a Grade II late Georgian Manor House then Washingborough Hall is the place to book. This is 300 year old house is just 3 miles east of Lincoln, set in 3 acres of grounds and gives the option of sleeping in a four poster bed.
Just a 10 minute drive out of Lincoln is the former stately home of Branston Hall. The hall stands in 88 acres of grounds and the Simpsons Spa and Parklands Leisure Suite is free to all guests.
Guest Houses and Bed & Breakfast establishments have always been two of Great Britain’s popular types of holiday accommodation many of them with a ‘home from home’ atmosphere. Lincoln has a wide range to choose from and include the Mayfield Guest House just 15 minutes walk from the cathedral, the Carline Guesthouse near to the Lawns Visitor Center and the Minster Lodge, again in the old quarter.
Self-catering apartments can be found in both ancient and modern Lincoln localities. Number 7 is an ‘elegant style townhouse’ whilst ‘Lincoln Townhouses’ and ‘Bail Mews Self Catering’ offer alternative accommodation to hotels especially ideal for families.
