This student-centred city in the County of Lincolnshire combines the traditional with the contemporary. Lincoln’s two university offerings complement this perfectly: with Bishop Grosseteste University and the University of Lincoln, developing from various educational institutions in the 1860s, to become innovative research and teaching establishments.
Steeped in history, the medieval city boasts various tourist attractions, revealing the characteristic charm of Lincoln, from the Fosse Dyke Canal – believed to be the oldest working canal in the country – to Lincoln’s Magna Carta, and an assortment of traditional galleries.
If it’s the contemporary that harbours your attraction to the city, however, Lincoln boasts a number of cinemas, boutique and high-street shopping facilities, eateries, bars and nightclubs to satisfy those student cravings.
