The old part of Lincoln, situated on a low hill above the modern town, provides what most travelers are looking for in England—cobblestoned streets, old shops, a castle (which incorporates some ancient Roman walls—Newport Gate is the most interesting) and a spectacular three-tower cathedral dramatically set on a ridge above town. Lincoln is 120 mi/190 km north of London.
Time permitting, excursions can be made to Woodhall Spa (beautiful birch and pine forests); Gainsborough (grand medieval Old House but not much else); or the low hills, known as the Wolds, 12 mi/20 km east.
