A Cathedral city known as Lindum Colonia in Roman times, Lincoln is the county town of Lincolnshire, within the East Midlands.

The city’s cathedral is world-famous, for both its architecture and its appearance in films such as the Da Vinci Code. Built in 1088 it sits in the historic Bailgate area at the top of the aptly-named Steep Hill, which was voted Britain’s best street in 2011 by the Academy of Urbanism.

The city has a rich heritage but is equally vibrant today. Its 11th century Norman Castle houses one of the four original copies of the Magna Carta, and the city hosts the largest and longest running steam punk festival in the world.
