Lincoln's Cultural Quarter
A vibrant hub at the heart of the city

Theatres, museums, art, music, cuisine, bars, and cafes

Lincoln's Cultural Quarter, in the heart of the city centre, is a vibrant hub of the city during the daytime and at especially night.

Spanning the east of the city centre and the south entrance to Lincoln's Cathedral Quarter, here you'll find theatre, museums, art, music, cuisine, bars and cafes. Whether spending the afternoon in a vibrant cafe, taking in the culture of the theatre or discovering the history of the area, the Cultural Quarter has plenty to keep you interested.

The Collection and Usher Gallery form the hub of the Cultural Quarter, providing regular exhibitions and activities for the whole family through the year.  There are also events and shows through the year at Lincoln Drill Hall and Theatre Royal including the famous pantomime at Christmas.

The Upper High Street and The Strait form the lead up to the Cathedral Quarter from the city centre. These are home to a vibrant and eclectic range of fashion outlets, charity stores, bars and nightclubs.  Look for for an American smokehousean international bar and a delicious patisserie.
