Lincoln has lots to offer visitors, from historic landmarks and the cobbled streets of the Cathedral Quarter, to the bustling city centre and marina which is home to the University of Lincoln. Lincoln fuses old and new to create a vibrant, cultural city. Everything is within walking distance of the University, with cafes, high street brands and popular bars dotted throughout the centre.
