DAY OUT: Christmas Shopping in Lincoln

I don't know how I had managed to have never been to Lincolnshire up until meeting Tom. It's the largest county in England and yet we had never passed through it, gone on holiday there or even just a day out! Tom's family are from Lincolnshire, so during the past three and a half years I have spent many days discovering all the wonders Lincolnshire has to offer. Lincoln is such a beautiful city, with a well respected university too. Lincoln seems to be split into two parts, the steep with all of the old buildings, a castle and stunning cathedral and the main shopping section at the bottom of the steep. The steep is exactly what it says it is, a VERY steep section of cobbled street you have to walk up to get to the old buildings and cute tea rooms. You certainly need to be fit to do that often, I have only walked up there three times and it's hard work!
Lincoln knows how to 'do' Christmas - the street decorations, Lincoln Christmas Market and cute Christmassy shops - all make for a lovely day out Christmas shopping. Tom and I started some Christmas shopping last weekend in Lincoln, then met up with my little baby niece Daisy (who is 6 months now and eating solids - where does the time go?!) and Tom's family. We visited Craft for lunch, which is a new bar/restaurant/deli - I'd highly recommend it! I had a vegetable burrito and it was such a tasty alternative for a vegetarian.

Have you ever visited Lincoln?

Feel free to leave me a comment :)



  1. Being from East Yorkshire it's probably bad how rare a trip to Lincolnshire was, I think the Humber Bridge prices was always the off putting factor! Lovely photographs though - how I miss old British high streets with all the old stone work!

  2. I've never been but it from these photos it looks really nice! Xx

  3. I went to the Christmas Market last year and loved it! Really put me in the festive mood :) x


  4. Oh I'm so glad you enjoyed it, my family are from Lincoln!

    Shame you're not up for the market, I always make a special effort to go home on that weekend, there's just too much good food to pass up!

    Hmm maybe...
