Lincoln City GuideBatsford Books
Few cities present as dramatic a profile as Lincoln. From many miles away the cathedral on its ridge makes a thrilling silhouette over the surrounding landscape. Closer to, its mighty Gothic towers dominate the city’s rooftops. Nearer still, Lincoln’s ancient powerful castle shares the heights. Lincoln is truly a city of two halves: the historic citadel above and, below, the commercial hub, with an earlier history of its own. Linking the two is the High Street, one of Britain’s best-preserved streets. What better way for today’s visitor to explore, experience and enjoy this beautiful city?
