Lincoln Visitor Information Centre sells a wide range of Lincoln and Christmas Market souvenirs as a memento of your trip or a unique Christmas gift.
Also look out for their stall in Lincoln Castle and our online shop for more ideas.
Some of the best views of the market up high on the Big Wheel on Westgate, behind Lincoln Castle.
Take a ride in the day for spectacular views across the county or at night to see the twinkling lights of the market and Lincoln Cathedral lit up brightly.
Sample authentic German glühwein, mulled wine, and spiced cider throughout the market.
The glühwein stalls remains from the market’s 1982 origins as an export from Lincoln’s twin city Neustadt an der Weinstraße.
You will find a great range of local Lincolnshire produce alongside foods from around the world at the market.
And there are lots of opportunities to discover local ingredients used in the cafes and restaurants across the city whilst you are visiting.
Take time to enjoy some of the local live entertainment provided by buskers along busy market routes.
Pop in to Lincoln Cathedral and enjoy the magical choir services and concerts everyday over the market weekend.
The Cathedral is free to enter during the market and roof and tower tours are available throughout at a cost of £4 per person.
