Christmas Shopping in Lincoln 2015

21

Why not enjoy Thursday late night Christmas Shopping in Lincoln. The City of Lincoln is an historic city with a vibrant and contemporary edge that adds an exciting dimension to any visit. Originally a Roman colony, Lindum Colonia, Lincoln is now home to a spectacular Norman Cathedral and a formidable Norman Castle.

The castle contains one of the original 1215 copies of the Magna Carta, while next door at the White Hart Hotel is the birthplace of the tank. It remains the only extant constituency from the 1265 Simon De Montfort parliament. The Red Arrows, based in nearby RAF Scampton will often soar overhead.

An ideal destination for a city break, Lincoln offers an experience rich in history combined with independent boutique shopping, great arts and culture and a wealth of places to eat and drink.

The city is easily walkable for visitors with good mobility – the main shopping and tourist area stretches from St Marks Shopping centre in the south up to the Cathedral Quarter – known locally as ‘Uphill’. Steep Hill, voted Britain’s Greatest Street 2012, connects ‘downhill’ and ‘uphill’ Lincoln. Yes it is steep as its name suggests, but well worth the walk. Lincoln has also been regularly cited as one of the most desirable cities to live in, which is why we and Blue & Green Tomorrow live here.

Your accommodation, if you choose to stay with Blue & Green, is a beautiful south facing double room in a family home in the Cathedral Quarter of Lincoln. We overlook the Castle’s north wall and are two minutes’ walk from the Cathedral, Bailgate, Steep Hill and a wide selection of the best independent shops, bars and restaurants. There are many great hotels, guest houses and B&Bs and fantastic places to eat we can also recommend.
