Places to visit in Lincolnshire

Visit Lincolnshire to enjoy scenic countryside trails, some of England’s most historic buildings and documents, and what may be the best tasting sausage festival in the land. Lincolnshire’s coast is packed with a wide array of things to do, enjoy a traditional seaside holiday in Skegness, watch young seal pups being pampered and nursed to health, or go to historic Lincoln where you can see what was once the world’s tallest building and an original copy of the Magna Carta. Of course, it isn’t all so much like a school textbook, Lincoln was also voted to ‘most steampunk city in the world’ and hosts the annual Steampunk Festival.
