Lincoln - Where to go and how to get there

Lincoln Cathedral

Lincoln station, a Tudor style building completed in 1848, is located in the centre of this important cathedral city, 136 miles north from London King's Cross station (a journey of 2 hours). Other trains serving Lincoln operate between Grimsby and Leicester and Peterborough and Doncaster.

Walking to the Catherdral

As you leave the station observe the George Boole sclulpture. Boole was a self taught Lincoln teacher who changed the peceptoion of mathematics by creating Boolean logic, the basis of the digital age. Passing George Boole cross the road and walk on through the Cornhll Quarter to the Wensum River. Turn right andand walk to the HIgh Steet crossing the River Witham on the High Bridge a much restored medieval bridge which, on your left, still carries 16th century shops and houses, a unique feature in England. Walk on through the Stonebow Arch at the Guildhall an early 16th century building, It has been home to the City Council since it was built. Walk straight on into the Straight passing the the Jews House (the church borrowed money from a local Jew to build the Cathedral). Now you are faced with Steep Hill, the steepest street in England. At the top you are rewarded with the Castle on the left and Cathedral on the right. For those who would find Steep Hill daunting  buses operate from the bus station opposite the railway station.
