Explore the colourful City of Lincoln with this easy circular walk around the city starting at 10am from the Cathedral and soak up a 1,000 years of history. Our leisurely 4 mile city tour could include Ellis Windmill, Brayford Pool and Foss Dyke Canal on a small circuit around West Common. We will finish the walk in the city centre in time for you to find your own lunch.

After lunch, the first 14 members to sign up to this event will be rewarded with a booked tour of Lincoln Cathedral's central tower. This is a climb of 338 steps, we will see Tom's huge bell-end chime. At the roof-top of the tower we will have an amazing 360° panorama of the city. On a clear day you can see the whole of Lincolnshire and it looks stunning.

The combined entry ticket for Lincoln Cathedral and Castle (and tower tour) will cost £20 (£16, plus £4 for the guided tour) and includes a FREE RETURN VISIT within 6 months of purchase - or you may have a ticket left over from when I last led this walk and we did the roof only tour?

If you are not one of the first 14 attendees to sign up to this event and attend, then you may still come on the city walk, and explore the lower ground of the Cathedral and Castle, but may not get a place on the tower tour, for health and safety reasons.

Afterwards, we can enjoy the medieval castle wall walk with complete 360° views of the city followed by a visit to the Victorian Prison and dungeons. You can then immerse yourself in the Magna Carta story, the iconic charter that changed the course of history with a widescreen cinema presentation. The original manuscript is now on display in the Castle Vault after being restored at the end of last year.

Finally, we will venture out of the castle walls to find a nice pub and enjoy a refreshing jar of mead before your safe onward journeys home.

Ultimately this is going to be an easy relaxed day of fun and medieval frollocks with plenty photo opportunities.

Please note this event is not dog friendly as dog owners would be excluded from the Castle grounds, the Cathedral and the pub, leaving you with just a very short walk of about an hour.
