Lincoln has much to hold you within its ornate, historic city gates. The Newport Arch on Bailgate dates back to its original Roman settlement and the beautiful old centre’s tangled web of cobbled medieval streets centres on a colossal and inspirational 12th century cathedral.
Tudor townhouses are interspersed with ancient pubs and quirky independent stores that you struggle to find among other city’s bland, parade of chain stores.
The River Witham, at the foot of the hill, is flanked by a revitalised Brayford Waterfront development from where you can picnic and watch the boats floating past.
Yet, for those who want to explore the surrounding area a car hire is essential.

Immediately on hand is Lincoln Castle and the Usher Gallery with its collection of works by Turner and Lowry. Tranquil destinations just a short drive away include Whisby Nature Reserve and Hartsholme Country Park. Meanwhile those looking for something a bit more thrilling can head for Scampton airfield – the base of the RAF's Red Arrows jet aerobatic team – or the Cadwell Park motor racing circuit near Louth.
The rolling landscape of the Wolds lies to the east of Lincoln. It has been an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty for more than 40 years. This is where the English poet Tennyson found his inspiration, and walking through the hills here it is easy to see why he loved it so much.
Driving west from Lincoln will bring you to more incomparable scenery courtesy of the Peak District. This National Park offers steep limestone valleys like Dovedale, with its famed stepping stones. To the south there are the White Peaks and to the North the brooding Dark Peaks. But, wherever you choose to park and head out into the wild yonder there are wonderful walks and breathtaking views to be enjoyed.
Chesterfield is a market town in Derbyshire that lies just over an hour’s drive east on A57 from Lincoln. Three days of the week you can catch the bustling market, one of the largest open-air markets in the UK, that is held at its centre – take a pause from browsing the stalls to gaze up at the 14th century Church of St Mary and All Saints, renowned for its crooked spire.
Not far from here a collection of narrow medieval streets make up ‘The Shambles’. Wander down these to find The Royal Oak, one of Britain's oldest pubs.
Just north of Chesterfield is Sheffield. One of the UK’s most successful regeneration projects has transformed this city whose fortunes were built on steel into a vibrant, attractive and exciting destination.
With start-ups springing from every street and shopping opportunities multiplying like no-one’s business, Sheffield is certainly a city on the up. In its centre the Millennium Gallery showcases metalwork and art from Sheffield and around the world. Next door to this is the Winter Garden, a large temperate glasshouse filled with rare plants.
You can explore the city’s industrial heritage and history at the Kelham Island Museum before you scrub up and prepare for a fantastic meal out from the city’s increasingly sophisticated dining scene and take the chance to dance the night away at one of its nightlife spots.
