Visiting Lincoln with kids? So what’s available for free?
Having loved our visit to Lincoln Castle & Cathedral yesterday, we know that Lincoln caters brilliantly for little explorers….our girls loved every second of the castle walls walk, guided cathedral tour and visit to the Victorian Prison. But could Lincoln provide as much enjoyment today but this time for free? So what’s available in the city, if like us, you’re on a tight budget?
But perhaps it’s most telling contribution is the fantastic resourcing that has obviously taken place, everything looks authentic and the kids loved seeing the names/brands they know today… albeit in a different container or jar!!! At times, it reminded us of our visit to York’s Castle Museum and their Victorian Street or our visit to Harry Potter’s Diagon Alley.

It’s hard to list in full detail, so we’ll leave it to the excellent Visit Lincoln website… but don’t forget the attractions on the outskirts of Lincoln (Bransby Horses, Aviation Trail, Doddington Hall, Cranwell Aviation Centre, Battle of Britain Memorial Flight, Ellis Mill…)
But perhaps the biggest smile on their faces came as we headed back into the city centre past an old sweet shop… well it would have been unfair to not let them have a small bag of sweets, wouldn’t it????
