Lincoln stands out from the crowd in the East Midlands quite literally. Its impressive historic cathedral is one of Lincolnshire’s great landmarks and can be seen for miles around. The cobbled streets of the Cathedral Quarter, ruined castle, ancient city walls and medieval architecture bring in plenty of visitors, however if you live here, you’ll find that it’s a city of today. Your new home will have great shopping, two universities, a growing economy and good communication network on hand.

Keeping well-connected

Lincolnshire is a largely rural county, and on the map, it may look as if it’s off the beaten track but that means it’s easy to get around, and its transport and communication links are excellent. It’s 56 miles from Sheffield, 40 miles from Nottingham, 19 miles from Newark-on-Trent, and 45 miles from Grimsby. Whichever direction you may need to head in, there’s an A road to take you there. The Tickhill junction of the A1(M) motorway is about half an hour’s drive to the northwest. There are direct train services from Lincoln Central to London King’s Cross, taking just under two hours. East Midlands Airport is about an hour and half’s drive on the A46, just below Nottingham. Lincoln has a central bus station for local services, as well as a Stagecoach depot.

Going to the shops

You’ve got the best of both worlds when it comes to shopping. Lots of independent shops, cafés, and boutiques to explore in the old heart of the city, central shopping centres such as the Waterside, and the Cornhill Quarter, retail parks and superstores. Whether your shopping trip is for necessities or treats, Lincoln has got it covered.

Going to school

With a combination of state and private education, there’s a good range of options for students. The Priory Academy, Witham Priory Academy, and the Priory Lincoln Academy are part of the Federation of Academies Trust. Lincoln Castle Academy is in partnership with the Healing Multi Academy Trust. Lincoln is also home to two universities, Lincoln University and Bishop Grosseteste University, so education is definitely on the agenda for this city.

Time out

Lincoln is very much a city of culture and there are plenty of concerts, theatre, and exhibitions to enjoy. For the younger members of the family, the Fun Farm Lincoln Family Entertainment Centre, and Playzone Lincoln are a great resource for a rainy day. There are two leisure centres, Yarborough Leisure Centre, and Deans Sport & Leisure. For the great outdoors, you’re not far from the Lincolnshire Wolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the seaside towns and villages of the east coast.
