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 city of York in North Yorkshire is a flourishing city with long and interesting history and is only two hours by train from London. The city is known around the world for its exquisite architecture, its many cobbled streets and of course the iconic York Minster. For a slightly different perspective on the city why not visit The York Army Museum which explores the history of two of Yorkshire's famous regiments, the Royal Dragoon Guards and the Prince of Wales's Own Regiment of Yorkshire. The museum has over eighty showcases displaying military artifacts collected over 300 years. Alternatively, for a more relaxing and contemplative experience visit the nearby 12th century Rievaulx Abbey located in the middle of the North Yorkshire Moors National Park. The Abbey became one of England's wealthiest monasteries before its dissolution by King Henry VIII in 1538. There is an indoor interactive museum and the Work of God and Man exhibition which shows how religion mixed with business in the lives of the monks. Whilst at the Abbey there are plenty of walking and cycling routes to enjoy the spectacular scenery.
