A welcome return to this privately owned modern hotel which was built on the site of the East Gate of the Roman City of Lindum Colonia and has a full view of the magnificent Lincoln Cathedral. Visit the Cathedral and admire one of the finest buildings in England. In its day it had huge spires which before one collapsed made it one of the tallest buildings in the world. Just a short walk around the corner and you find the Lincoln Castle reopened in 2015 after a £22 million renovation. The castle built nearly 1000 years ago on the site of the old Roman Fortress and on the orders of William the Conquer. It has seen many bloody battles in its history. In 1215 the Barons forced King John to sign the Magna Carta and one of 40 copies were placed in the Cathedral, now only four remain and Lincoln is still the proud owner of its original copy. Take a walk around the Castle walls now fully open and visit the Victorian prison exactly as it was in the 19th. Century or see where the executions took place and the burial places of the felons. You can also visit the Magna Carta Vaults where the Great Charter and the Charter of the Forest are kept.
