Lincoln & The Bailgate

Lincoln began life as a Roman fortress town, after the conquest of Lincolnshire in 48 AD. The Romans called it Lindum Colonia. The historic Bailgate runs from the top of the iconic Steep Hill to Newport Arch, one of the city’s Roman gates.


Bailgate, known locally as ‘The Bail’ teems with independent retailers, artisan food producers, elegant bars, restaurants and much more. It also carries a weight of history, being the former home to a Roman Colonnade as well as several historic churches.

Lincoln Cathedral

Lincoln Cathedral is the city’s most iconic building. Once the tallest building in the world, the Cathedral has a long and fascinating history and acts as a landmark for much of the county. Also known as Lincoln Minster, it is a Grade I listed cathedral and is just a stone’s throw away from the White Hart.

Steep Hill

Steep Hill is one of the most unique and indeed, steep streets in the UK. The hill has a gradient of 14% and is one of the most challenging hills to climb in England. It’s hugely popular with tourists and visitors to Lincoln, not just for the steep gradient, but also for its wealth of independent shops, boutiques, coffee shops and tearooms.

Lincoln Castle

One of the city’s leading tourist attractions, Lincoln Castle has a long and storied history. A medieval castle, first built in the late 11th century by William the Conqueror. The castle remained in use as a prison and a court into modern times. Visitors can enjoy guided tours of the walls and grounds, which offer views across the city and surrounding countryside. You can also view one of the remaining examples of the Magna Carta in a specially created onsite vault.
