If you follow me on social media then you will know that Edd and I travelled down to Lincoln to spend some time with his family. We arrived on Sunday night and left Thursday afternoon. The holiday consisted of a lot of sleeping, spending hours in the sun with his cousins and spending a day in Lincoln exploring the city. I wanted to share with you some of the snapshots that I took whilst I was in Lincoln city centre to mark such a lovely week with my favourite person.
Lincoln Castle was the first place we wanted to visit so after browsing the shelves of Primark, changing in the car because it was so hot for jeans and a top we made our way to the Castle. When we reached the Castle, we had a quick look at all the buildings inside the walls but the main attraction was being able to walk around the walls. The views were breathtaking! You could see all the way round Lincoln. They occasionally hold events but they were mainly for young children to learn more about the history of the Castle.
Wave and Weeping Window is a cascade of several thousand handmade ceramic poppies that were pouring down from part of the wall. The artist, Paul Cummins and designer, Tom Piper are brought to audiences at venues such as Lincoln Castle as part of the 14-18 NOW programme. It aims to prompt a new, nationwide dialogue around the legacy of the First World War. Each of the poppies were planted by a volunteer in memory of the life of a British and Colonial soldier lost during the war.
After climbing up one of the steepest streets I have ever seen, I was greeted with beautiful architecture of Lincoln Cathedral. Words can’t describe how lovely it was! As I walked round I couldn’t help but think of all the scenes in Harry Potter even though it’s not actually where the film was made. Everything just looked so beautiful.
Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed exploring Lincoln. It cost about £29 for both of us to go in the Cathedral and Castle and we can even visit again within six months time which I think is a complete bargain. It was nice to spend some quality time with Edd and I can’t wait to visit more cities with him.
Have you ever been to Lincoln before? Where should we visit next?
