The cathedral city of Lincoln is located in, and the county town of, Lincolnshire in England. The city lies in a gap in the Lincoln Cliff by the River Witham roughly 150 miles to the north of London. The city's origins date back to Roman times which developed from the Roman time of Lindum Colonia. Perhaps the city's most famous landmarks are its cathedral and its 11th century castle.
Following destruction of the first cathedral by an earthquake, construction on the current cathedral began in 1185 and when completed it was widely recognised as being the tallest man made structure in the world, surpassing the Great Pyramids of Egypt. Contained within the cathedral is one of only 4 surviving original copies of the Magna Carta which was drawn up in 1215.
Other visitor attractions in the city include the Museum of Lincolnshire Life and the Sir Joseph Banks Conservatory at the Lawn, which is adjacent to Lincoln Castle. If visitors require a more tranquil experience then the Whisby Nature Reserve and the Hartsholme Country Park, which includes the Swanholme Lakes Local Nature Reserve, are places to head to. A louder experience would be to head to RAF Scampton which is home to the Red Arrows jet aerobatic team.
The university city of Cambridge in eastern England is a city of crocuses and daffodils, of green open spaces and cattle grazing only 500 yards from the market square. The city, perhaps best known for its world class university, is also a world class centre for technology and science. The university was the site of Rutherford's pioneering work in nuclear physics as well as Crick and Watson's DNA work.
Visitors to Cambridge can enjoy a leisurely stroll along The Backs (gardens by the River Cam behind various colleges) which will provide an insight to the city. You are able to walk through Kings College and onto Kings Parade. Visitors also enjoy spending time on the water on punts or in rowing boats. Punts can be hired in the city.
The Cambridge Summer Music Festival may be the most romantic way to appreciate the magnificent architecture of the many College Chapels. You can listen to a concert performed in their marvelous acoustics. Cambridge Summer Music offers world class performances in the well-known Chapel of King's College as well as many of the city's hidden gems.
