About the cathedral
Lincoln Cathedral sits on an escarpment, dominating the landscape and visible for miles. The vast church has a Norman core built by William the Conqueror’s cousin, and was embellished by early English Gothic in the restoration by St Hugh of Lincoln at the end of the 12th century. Visitors can enjoy up to three tours within the entry price, including in the summer months the Wren Library, described by Sir Roy Strong as the most beautiful room in England. The Chapter House, in which the English Parliament met, a Refectory and Shop complete the visit.
