Lincoln has a number of pretty, cobbled streets, and a very steep hill linking the historic Cathedral Quarter to the city centre - meaning not all of the city is easy to navigate.
However, the city is working hard to make sure as much of it as possible can be explored, no matter who is visiting.
Lincoln has accessible bus services that can aid you in travelling from the south of the city up the hill to the north of the city, and back again.
Lincoln Park & Ride is accessible with a low floor and space for a wheelchair. The service runs Monday - Saturday from 7am (8am on Saturday) with the last return bus departing at 6:20pm. Stops include Waitrose (Nettleham Road), Lincoln Cathedral, Broadgate, and Lincoln Central Bus Station. Adult tickets are £2.50 and valid for the whole day. Accompanied children ride for free.
You can use the bus to get up and down the hill, from the Bus Station or Broadgate to Lincoln Cathedral and back, and then on to your parked car at Waitrose.
Lincoln's open-top sightseeing bus is also accessible. Tours run from March to October and tickets cost £10 per person. Each ticket lasts for two days and includes a circular trip around Lincoln, stopping at 11 locations, with live commentary audible on both decks.
Shopmobility, located on Meville Street, provides powered scooters as well as powered and manual wheelchairs for daily loans.
The office is open Monday to Saturday from 9am to 4:15pm. Annual membership costs £12 and offers free hire year round. Mobility equipment can be hired on an ad hoc basis without membership at a fee.

It is important for visitors with accessibility needs to know that Lincoln's Steep Hill is not accessible. It is a steep, cobbled street which is unsuitable for wheelchair users or for those with mobility needs.
However, other historic parts of Lincoln are accessible for all and travelling up the hill is possible with use of the Steep Hill Shuttle or open-top bus. Find out other things to do that are accessible on the Accessible City Breaks page.
