Lincoln is renowned for its fusion of old and new. The winning combination of a vibrant city centre and a historic cathedral quarter, both with a broad range of cultural activities and venues, make Lincoln a fantastic environment in which to live and study.

Lincoln Cathedral overlooks the city and is one of the finest medieval buildings in Europe. Lincoln Castle is home to an original copy of Magna Carta, dating back to 1215, as well as the Charter of the Forest.

Lincoln's city centre includes an array of theatres, cinemas, restaurants, pubs, cocktail bars, live music venues and clubs. The Brayford Waterfront is popular for the restaurants, cafes and bars overlooking the water.

I like the size of the city. It’s neither too big, nor too small. You can easily walk or bike everywhere, but there is still a lot to see and do. The cathedral is a highlight for me since I can see it on my daily route to the University and it’s such a beautiful building.
