Lincolnshire is fast becoming one of the United Kingdom's foremost holiday destinations, with the city of Lincoln high up on the list of reasons why. Lincoln is a thriving city, filled with historical, cultural, academic and commercial sights. Among the city's premier attractions is the Usher Gallery, a creative and educational space that exists as part of The Collection, in the city centre. With plenty of Lincoln's best hotels in the vicinity, it's a must-see for all visitors to the city.
Art at the Usher Gallery
The Usher Gallery is home to a diverse collection of art, spanning sculpture, decorative art, horology and fine art. The Gallery displays a number of pieces which hold significance to the local area, including familiar Lincolnshire landscapes by the likes of Turner, and a whole host of local artists' work.
Since its recent renovation, the Usher Gallery has also been home to an impressive archaeological exhibition. This exhibition tells the story of the East Midlands county, from the Stone Age, through Roman times to the Medieval Era, evidence of which is still visible in Lincoln today.
Part of The Collection, the Usher Gallery is not only a hub for spectacular artwork, it is also a public centre. As such, visitors can expect superb facilities. The Gallery is fully accessible for disabled visitors, boasting parking bays, wheelchairs and even a hearing loop. The Collection also provides ample venue space available for hire. This includes a sizeable auditorium, several education rooms and space for children's parties. There's also a large café on-site.
Accommodation in Central Lincoln
As The Collection is situated in the centre of Lincoln, there's plenty of fabulous accommodation nearby. In fact, the city is home to some of the best hotels in Lincolnshire. The White Hart Hotel and The Old Palace offer memorable hotel choices for those in search of something in the historic district. As well as being within easy reach of the Usher Gallery, these hotels are also close to the Cathedral and Castle.
Affordable options in the West of the city include the Queen In The West Inn and a number of well-known hotel brands such as the Holiday Inn and Hilton, so you have plenty of hotels to choose from, whatever your budget.
