“Its astonishing cathedral was once the tallest building on earth, but Lincoln has lots to offer besides,” writes Jill Starley-Grainger in an article published in last week’s Sunday Times.
Describing Lincoln as a ‘medieval city with layers of history’, Starley-Grainger provides a detailed account of her time in the city. From Steep Hill and Olivares Tapas bar to the Old Mouse House Cheese Shop, Jill mentions some great independent businesses in the heart of Lincoln.
The feature also advises a ‘20-minute drive away’ from the city to Doddington Hall to witness the ‘most remarkable bedroom with floor-to-ceiling Flemish tapestries from the 1630s’. Additionally, she recommends Washingbrough Hall as an ‘elegant’ place to stay with an ‘excellent’ restaurant.
Lydia Rusling, CEO at Visit Lincoln said: “Attracting and supporting visits to the city from national media is an important part of Visit Lincoln’s activity. Not only does it highlight Lincoln as a place to visit, but it acts as a priceless endorsement for local businesses too.
She added: “Seeing Lincoln prominently featured in a national newspaper helps to attract more visitors to Lincolnshire.”
Jill’s tour of the city was hosted by Hidden Lincoln; two-hour introductory tours start at £50pp.
