Lincoln Cathedral: The Da Vinci Code, Queen Victoria and more

Lincoln Cathedral is a gothic masterpiece and has been featured in blockbuster films such as The Da Vinci Code and, more recently, The Young Victoria.When I first moved to Lincoln from Liverpool a few years ago this was the most prominent feature of the city. The breathtaking building stands proudly over Lincoln and can be seen from miles away.
And as the sun fades, the cathedral is beautifully lit up.

Every New Year’s Eve, crowds gather below the cathedral to hear the bells ring at midnight.

It is free to have a look around inside, but to climb further up into the cathedral there are paid-for tours available.
There is also a gift shop selling books and other memorabilia.
Various events take place here – such as medieval re-enactments and music concerts.
