They Say Lincoln Loves Kids – So We Thought We’d Find Out Why?
Considering a weekend in Lincoln with your kids and wondering what are the best places for kids in Lincoln. Pondering whether there’s enough to occupy them? Well, we’ve tried and tested it! So use the ideas & inspiration from our family visit to help make your next visit to Lincoln as enjoyable as possible (for you and the kids!)
FIND SOME FREEDOM FOR YOUR KIDS TO BURN OFF SOME ENERGY, EXPLORE OR BE INSPIRED AT CASTLE HILL
For those that say Lincolnshire is flat, you’d be right! But perhaps not Lincoln… so with two active girls, we know the importance of finding places to burn off some energy before they head into attractions! So after a decent walk up Steep Hill (aptly named!) and a run around Castle Hill & the Castle Grounds, we headed towards the Cathedral. Pausing to see one of the 2012 Golden Letterboxes where both girls loved reading about Sophie Well’s Paralympic success! A real inspiration!
GRAB A GUIDED TOUR OF THE IMMENSE LINCOLN CATHEDRAL…
RUMBLING TUMMIES, HEAD FOR SOME HEARTY LINCOLNSHIRE ‘SOUL FOOD’ FROM THE CHORISTERS CAFE IN THE CATHEDRAL
BRAVE STEEP HILL IF YOU DARE?
WALK LINCOLN’S CITY WALLS USING THE BRILLIANT GUIDED HISTORY TOUR
But this is certainly as good as the famous Dubrovnik City Walls with it’s Game of Thrones link or Segovia in Spain.. But these had no audio guide, whereas this one has a brilliant account England & Lincoln’s history across the ages… The tour takes you past stunning views of the cathedral and castle and the old victorian prison and is perfect for kids/adults alike.. There’s even a vertigo inducing tower to finish the tour!!
Explore a Victorian prison
hungry? WHY NOT GRAB A SLICE OF LINCOLNSHIRE FOOD HERITAGE WITH SOME TASTY FISH ‘N’ CHIPS
And where better in a county that is linked to fishing (Grimsby) or potato production (Fens)… Tasting a national dish that has experienced a recent revolution due to the #OceantoPlate campaign for sustainable fishing across the world.
