We have listed some of the most popular and interisting places to visit in and around Lincoln.
Known as the very first charter designed to restrict the amount of power a king had, while maintaining the rights of the individual. During the demands for peace at Runnyede in 1215, King John agreed to the barons’ demands and it was at that time that multiple copies of the Magna Carta were made and sealed. They were sent to sherrifs, cathedrals, and other religious houses located throughout England. The copy on display at the Lincoln Castle is one of the four known original copies to have survived, making it a very unique piece of documentation to see.
Situated not very far from the Lincoln Cathedral, the Lincoln Castle provides guests with a unique look into the history of the City of Lincoln as well as the many uses the castle served throughout the years.
