The local area guide to living in Lincoln

Lincoln is a classic English cathedral city with an appeal that goes much deeper than its gorgeous facades. It’s a city that celebrates ideas, boasting two major universities, a philosophical club and the famous ‘Great Minds’ lecture series. Lincoln has a long and rich history, and is home to one of only four surviving copies of the Magna Carta, which can be visited in Lincoln Castle.

From the Industrial Revolution to the 20th century Lincoln thrived economically, though the post-war years saw it shrink a little, bringing it in line with much of the rest of the UK. Lincoln is now home to a growing IT sector, and supports many e-commerce companies, and, due to its impressive history, has a thriving tourist industry.
