Brayford Waterfront in the Day

Lincoln’s Brayford Waterfront is England's oldest inland Harbour and offers a great selection of eating, drinking and entertainment venues.

It’s the perfect place to relax at a pavement café overlooking the water or the stunning University of Lincoln campus after a hard days shopping.

For a unique experience, take a tour on the water, with spectacular scenery, on the Brayford Belle, operating boat trips on the water from Easter to October.

The vibrant waterfront includes the Starbucks coffee shop at the Holiday Inn HotelWagamama restaurant which seemingly floats on the water, and the DoubleTree by Lincoln Hotel with the top floor Electric Bar.

For information about visitor moorings in Lincoln and the Brayford Harbour, visit the Brayford Trust's webpage. Pre-booking is recommended.
