Persimmon Homes


Just over an hour from both the coast and Sheffield, the cathedral city of Lincoln is the perfect balance of modern living and old-world culture. Steeped in history, the city is home to national treasure landmarks and offers a wide range of everyday amenities, such as monthly markets, independent shops, restaurants and pubs. 


Buying a new-build home in Lincoln

A money and time saving option, a new house has higher energy efficiency and doesn’t come with a list of expensive repairs that an older building can bring. Plus, with beautiful architecture around every corner, Lincoln is an ideal best-of-both location that offers a relaxing work-life balance appeal. 

Living in Lincoln


A modern yet rural location, Lincoln is situated in the countryside idyll of Lincolnshire and also offers excellent links via its motorway network, rail and air travel connections.  

With the A1 close by, Sheffield is just over an hour away, and Nottingham and Newark-on-Trent are even closer. Also, the Lincoln Central train station has a direct service to London King’s Cross in just under two hours, and the East Midlands Airport is an hour and half away by car.

Cathedrals, castles and cobbled streets

Before you check out Lincoln’s almost famous landmarks, you can take a walk up the atmospheric cobbled streets of Steep Hill. As the name suggests, it’s the fourth steepest street in England, and is lined with a variety of independent boutiques and shops.  

Everywhere you look, the Cathedral Quarter is full of stunning Medieval architecture, not to mention of course the Cathedral and Castle, both of which were built in the 11th century. 

And for green space you really are spoilt for choice. The Arboretum, Liquorice Park and Temple Gardens are all within walking distance of the city centre, plus you also have Whisby Nature Park, Hartsholme Country Park, Boultham Park and the Lincolnshire Wolds (Area Of National Beauty) nearby. 

Education and entertainment for everyone

A city of culture, Lincoln has a year-round variety of entertainment for all ages – from theatre to concerts, Christmas markets and even an annual Steampunk festival, there’s something for everyone. 

If you enjoy trips to the museum, there’s the Lincoln Museum, Usher Art Gallery and Museum of Lincolnshire Life. And for evenings out by the waterside, Bayford Waterfront offers a range of restaurants, bars and entertainment venues.  

In terms of education, the area provides both private and state options, including The Priory Academy, Witham Priory Academy and the Priory Lincoln Academy. Part of the Healing Multi Academy Trust, Lincoln Castle Academy offers secondary school education, and students can take both undergraduate and postgraduate courses at Lincoln University and Bishop Grosseteste University.
