Birthdays - Loughborough Minibus

Treat a friend or family member to a birthday they will never forget by booking Loughborough Minibus hire to explore Lincoln. With its cobbled streets and an abundance of medieval buildings dating from the 14th and 15th centuries, the East Midlands city of Lincoln attracts its fair share of visitors, drawn by its 2,000-year history.

Lincolns most popular attraction is St Mary’s Cathedral, the third largest cathedral in the country. The structure towers over the surrounding fenlands, supported by columns of limestone and marble. While you are inside this impressive building, make sure you look among the intricate carvings for the notorious ‘Lincoln Imp’ in the Angel Choir. The carving was a stonemason's joke that has become the official city emblem.

Another site worth a visit is Lincoln Castle, a hill-top home built by William the Conqueror in 1068 after he destroyed hundreds of Saxon houses that occupied the site. Visitors can still walk around the ramparts and outside the castle walls, from where you can enjoy a panoramic view of St Mary’s Cathedral.

Other notable historic buildings include the Jew’s House, built in the 1100s and now used as a shop, and the 15th-century black and white Cardinal’s Hat. The High street is home to the original medieval gateway to the city, Stonebow, a Tudor-Gothic bridge, while there are also plenty of great party venues that can be booked here and enjoyed before using Loughborough Minibus hire to return home.
