Uphill Lincoln: Cobbled Streets, Medieval Buildings and Quaint Houses

Uphill Lincoln is brimming with history and plenty of attractive houses and buildings. This part of the city is where the cathedral and castle can be found, but these are not the only sights worth seeing. The area generally has character and charm with quaint cottages, nostalgic shop fronts, cobbled streets and Victorian-style streetlamps. Here are some images to paint a picture of what you could expect to see…

There are many pretty houses lining the roads.

This archway leads to Lincoln Cathedral.

Opposite the cathedral are these colourful homes. Even on a dull day they still manage to look sunny.

Lincoln Cathedral is a beautiful gothic building.

Medieval archways leading to the cathedral.

Bailgate is where independent shops can be found along with restaurants and traditional pubs.

A historic medieval church with the Magna Carta pub in the background.

Mmmmm ice cream.

The entrance to Lincoln Castle.

An attractive medieval building which is the tourist information office.

I love street lamps like this which really add character to the area.
