Holiday Inn Express Lincoln City Centre

A great place from which to explore the wonderful city of Lincoln, the Holiday Inn Express is located in the city centre.

With surprisingly low prices (I paid £55 for a Saturday night), spotlessly clean and spacious bedrooms and helpful staff, this relatively new hotel is a credit to the Holiday Inn brand.

Lincoln

UK travel information

The main draw to Lincoln for many visitors is the historical buildings; castle, cathedral, and medieval Bishops Palace are the most famous, but the city is steeped in history and there are whole streets of shops and houses dating back many centuries, such as Bailgate.

Lincoln hotels

The original cathedral and the oldest parts of the castle date from the 1100s, a well preserved castle, it commands wonderful views across the surrounding countryside, and many tourists visit to see the copy of the Magna Carta held here. Lincoln Cathedral houses a library of ancient manuscripts, and the famous stone carving of the Lincoln Imp, as well as many tombs and religious treasures.

The Collection is the name given to the combined museum and art gallery, which includes exhibits from the archeological excavations around Lincolnshire, and many hours can be wiled away looking at the wonders of the building itself as much as at the displays. Returning to the fresh air, other attractions in the area include the Red Arrows base of RAF Scampton, and the Cadwell Park motor-racing circuit. Quieter relaxation can be found at the Joseph Banks Conservatory, a collection of tropical plants in the tranquil area known as The Lawn.
