I love the Lincoln visitor information centre. It is in such a beautiful old building and is full of loads of useful information, gifts and postcards. The people who run the centre and an absolute mine of information and nothing is too much trouble.

This was just across the road from our hotel and the staff were extremely helpful on the few occasions we asked for their help and advice. They also stock some interesting and nice quality souvenirs of the city.

A nice and simple Visitor Information Centre, in the heart of the Bail. There are a number of Lincoln based products on offer - bookmarks, pens, pencils etc, as well as edibles and guidebooks. Plenty of advice on offer too for tourists, should it be...More

We came here to see where the imps were hidden around the city. York has cats in the architecture and a cat trail - so we thought Lincoln would have an organised Imp Trail, or at least a leaflet - nothing. Still a nice gift...More
