Follow in Roman footsteps with a free smartphone app

Lincoln, Lincolnshire

Looking for an immersive and cheap experience? Use mobile technology to delve into the past with Lincoln’s free digital Roman Trail app.

Get out your smartphone and walk in the footsteps of the Romans along the Lincoln Roman Trail. Follow the directions on your screen using the free digital trail to find Roman ruins and other signs pointing to life in Lincoln almost 2,000 years ago.

Follow the outdoor trail to Newport Arch, the oldest arch in England still to have traffic pass under it. Let it lead you down Steep Hill, once covered in steps, where shops are now built into the ancient gates. Explore The Collection’s free museum, built on the site of Roman town houses, and see artefacts from Lindum Colonia.

And if you prefer a physical map to follow, pick up a printed version from the Visitor Information Centre and immerse yourself in Roman Lincoln.
