Bank holiday Monday, we went to Lincoln Cathedral and Castle but, I will spare the castle bit in a couple of days.
The husband let me and the Boss Toddler to explore the cathedral while he was off his wanders around town as he has been in the cathedral so many times.
The cathedral is located in the centre of Lincoln in the east of England, dominating a stunning sight line of medieval masterpiece in the middle of Steep Hill which you can see from 25 miles away. John Ruskin said, it is “out and out the most precious piece of architecture on the British Isles”.
The building commenced in 1088 and has taken centuries to finish the the job. In 1311–1549, it has been the tallest building in the world- that’s 238 years.
The cathedral is magnificently preserved, truly grandeur and awe inspiring. I haven’t done the rooftop tour as it is a bit too much for Olivia. I will definitely go back as I can never get enough of it.
There is an entrance fee of £8, it’s a little bit steep but it’s all WORTH it. I won’t give everything here as I do want you to visit and connect with the history of England.
I have taken lots of photos and I wish, I can share them all in one post but, one thing I am sure of is, I will be flooding loads of these photos in instagram.
