Lincoln Recommended Recommended : Michelin's recommendations


Rising on a limestone plateau close to the River Witham, the triple towers of Lincoln Cathedral are visible for miles around. The town was first called Lindon, then became Lindum during the Roman occupation, and finally Lincoln after the Anglo-Saxon conquest. Part of the lower town has been pedestrianised and is dotted with medieval churches. Narrow streets climb up to the upper section of town with its imposing cathedral, castle and Roman remains.
