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.
