2. Walk in the footsteps of Kings

Uncover one of England’s most fascinating historical sites and walk in the footsteps of Kings and prisoners, at Lincoln Castle.

3. Visit a Victorian sun trap

Lincoln Arboretum on Lindum Terrace provides the best of both worlds; the kids can run off excess energy across the 22 acres of beautiful Victorian designed gardens, whilst you soak up the sumptuous summer sun keeping a watchful eye from a safe distance. With an array of activities on each week, this is a beautiful spot to take a moment out of the hustle and bustle of city life and truly relax in glorious surroundings that everyone can appreciate.

If you’re an animal lover, then make sure you visit one of the UK’s largest equine welfare charities this summer; Bransby Horse sanctuary. Celebrating 50 years of dedicated equine rescue and welfare, it’s a beautiful place to walk, interact with horses, have a spot of home-cooked lunch and even adopt a horse!
