Lincoln Cathedral

I’ve wanted to visit Lincoln for years because I have heard it is super pretty. Well my expectations were matched! It is very ideal for tourists who love exploring pretty, winding streets full of tea rooms, cafes, shops and pubs.

The eye catching landmark is the Gothic cathedral. Found after hiking up the only steep hill in the city, aptly named “Steep Hill”, it is beautiful both inside and outside.

In the cathedral gardens is also a statue dedicated to the memory of poet Alfred Lord Tennyson. The memorial also bears the lines from his poem ‘Flower in the Crannied Wall’.

Flower in the crannied wall,
I pluck you out of the crannies,
I hold you here, root and all, in my hand,
Little flower—but if I could understand
What you are, root and all, and all in all,
I should know what God and man is
