A family run business since 1902, Stokes has a vast range of teas and coffees all of which are sourced, blended, roasted and packed in Lincoln! They are famous for their afternoon tea in Lincoln - the High Bridge site is a beautiful tudor building (you can't miss it) and worth the visit alone!

Whilst we are big on promoting small, local businesses we really do recommend heading the DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel on the Brayford, preferably at sunset. The hotel has a very chic cocktail bar with terraces looking out over the Brayford quay - perfect for a romantic date night or drinks with friends!

Quirky cocktail bar specialising in all things gin! The bar is also filled with curious antiques available to purchase (just ask to speak to the shop keeper). We recommend trying the "Pick Me Up" if you're feeling a little fatigued from exploring the city all day! Not a fan of gin? No problem, the bar also stocks various lagers, craft beers, rum, whisky, tequila and vodka.

A trip to Lincoln isn't complete without a visit to the Castle and it's historic grounds. Home of the 1215 Magna Carta (one of the only four surviving copies), the castle was constructed in the late 11th century by William the Conqueror on the site of a pre-existing Roman fortress. Enjoy a guided tour, wall walk or a trip to the Georgian and Victorian prison. We also recommend checking the Visit Lincoln website prior to your visit to see "what's on" - events such as open air cinemas, concerts and markets are held here throughout the year!

One of Europe's finest gothic cathedrals, once the tallest in the world, towers over the city and has stunning views from the rooftop. Visitors can climb to the top of the tower to take in the stunning 360 degree views of the surrounding area. We also recommend taking a walk to the cathedral at night time when the building is illuminated in golden lights - it's truly breath taking.
