Lincoln Cathedral, or The Cathedral Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Lincoln to give it its full name, is located in the Lincolnshire city of Lincoln. The cathedral is the seat of the Bishop of Lincoln. Construction of the cathedral began in 1088 and continued throughout the medieval period. Between 1311 and 1549 it was supposed to have been the tallest structure in the world. The cathedral features two major rose windows, which are an uncommon feature among medieval architecture in England. On the north side of the cathedral there is the “Dean's Eye” which survives from the original structure of the building and on the south side there is the “Bishop's Eye” which was most likely rebuilt circa 1325–1350.
Lincoln also has a number of museums and galleries including the Harding House Gallery which is housed in a 15th century building within the Cathedral Quarter. There is also the Lincoln Art Works, which is an independent art gallery located just off the High Street in Lincoln's Cultural Quarter, and the Museum of Lincolnshire Life in the Cathedral Quarter which celebrates the county's rich history.
Located in the county of Norfolk, the city of Norwich was England's second city from medieval times through to the Industrial Revolution. Norman invaders gave the city its castle and the Anglican cathedral and as the city grew so did its defensive wall and medieval street layout, which remains intact. Like any great city its centre is easy to walk around and has a river at its heart. Notable landmarks and attractions in the city, the "Norwich 12" include the Edwardian Surrey House, the Georgian grandeur of the Assembly House, St James Mill, The Forum and the Millennium Building. Norwich is a great city to explore on foot. Why not take a stroll from the thirteenth century Adam and Eve public house (the oldest in the city) around the river Wensum, past the unique Cow Tower, to Pulls Ferry, one of the original entrance gates to the Cathedral precinct. A canal was built through this gate to ferry the stone brought from Caen in France, which was used to build the Castle and Cathedral. If you want a great view of the city go up Mousehold Heath to the north-east, close to the nineteenth century prison. From there you will see many of the city's most historic buildings.
