Tucked away in the heart of the East Midlands, the county of Lincolnshire takes full advantage of some of the United Kingdom's most spectacular and diverse landscapes. All year round, tourists are drawn to the county's rugged and unspoiled coastline and its tranquil countryside. Still one of the most attractive things about Lincolnshire, though, is its collection of bustling market towns and cities.
Lincoln is the county's biggest city, offering plenty to see and do for visitors. As you'd expect, the city is also home to some of the best hotels in Lincolnshire, meaning planning your visit couldn't be easier.
The Historical District
Part of the charm of Lincolnshire lies in its history, much of which is still visible to today's visitors. The city's historical district sees streets lined with pretty old buildings and is also home to some of Lincoln's premier attractions, including the Cathedral and the Castle.
Fortunately, Lincoln's historical district is also home to some charming independent hotels. The three star White Heart Hotel boasts a warm welcome and striking frontage, as well as a business centre and on-site laundry facilities. The nearby Old Palace offers guests the chance to make the most of the period setting, with suitably furnished rooms.
Explore the University
A lot of visitors to Lincoln are in town for the university. From prospective students to travelling academics, those visiting the central campus are spoiled for choice when it comes to guest houses, hotels and B&Bs in Lincolnshire.
The Holiday Inn Express is situated almost on top of the University of Lincoln campus, offering easy access. The Hilton is also conveniently located, just across the water from the campus.
Embrace the Culture
Lincoln is a hub for culture in the East Midlands, with plenty of artistic attractions. Probably the most exciting cultural attraction in the city is the Usher Gallery, which is part of the internationally-important The Collection.
The gallery is situated in the centre of town, making access easy no matter where your hotel is located. Inside, visitors can view a broad selection of locally inspired art. From local artists and sculptors to Lincolnshire landscapes by the very best, there's something at the Usher Gallery to suit all tastes.
