Last weekend, I had a fantastic time visiting friends in Lincoln – and took some snaps along the way. We first went to look at the Cathedral, which was a bit of a climb for these London legs!
We wandered around the outside of the Cathedral, taking in all of the exterior and contemplating that it’s a shame you cannot see the stained glass the same from outside – whilst inside, it was beautiful!
It was a quick visit and we did not pay for the tour, but lovely nonetheless. I always like visiting churches. I am not religious myself, but I find it peaceful to wander around with the slight noise of shoes on stone and hushed whispers.
Everyone was hungry, so we decided to find somewhere to eat. Most cafés were packed full, obviously popular with their location next to the Cathedral, but we ended up at a lovely vegetarian café called Pimento Fashion and Tea Rooms.
My lunch of Tomatoes, Green Olives, and Basil Open Toast was delicious – especially with the addition of mozzarella. This place is definitely worth a visit if you have any kind of dietary requirement with gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan (the list goes on) options.
We spent a while catching up and eating, before browsing the many gift shops and heading to the Castle. Inside the Castle walls would be perfect for picnicking when the weather is a little warmer; and on clear days, you can get a good view over Lincoln and the countryside beyond.
By then, we were all ready for a sit down and a cuppa, so headed back to get ready for the evening. Lincoln City was playing against Arsenal, so everywhere in town was packed! In the end we had a wonderful, surprisingly quiet, meal at the Swan Holme, which is just out of town. The pub/restaurant has a vintage style, which complimented the traditional food being served. Wine and roast dinners later, we were all talked out and ready for home.
