High Street

Lincoln High Street is a centre of history, culture and shopping - something for everyone visiting the city centre.

Lincoln High Street runs from south of the city centre to the bottom of The Strait and is lined with independent and global shops, cafes, restaurants, pubs, historic buildings and much more.

It runs closely parallel to the Roman Fosse Way which linked Lindum Colonia to Exeter in South West England - the buildings on the east side of High Street use the Roman road as their foundation.

As the main street in the city over the centuries, it is full of history including the country's oldest bridge to still have buildings in use on it.

Highlights include (from south to north):
