Boasting plenty of family-friendly venues and enjoying the very best of outdoor living, the Cathedral City of Lincoln has always been a child-friendly destination.
Some of the recognised attractions that propelled Lincoln to the top of the list included International Bomber Command Centre, Lincoln Castle, Lincoln Cathedral, The Collection Museum and The Museum of Lincolnshire Life, all providing hours of entertainment for the whole family.
Minutes from the City Center, families enjoy an array of child-friendly attractions including Doddington Hall and Gardens, with its miles of gardens to explore and mouth-watering café and restaurant, as well as Rand Farm Park which is becoming increasingly popular with young families exploring life on the farm with a menagerie of live animals to see, touch and even feed.
Bransby Horses is also another popular attraction, complimenting further destinations such as the fun-packed Jump INC. and Escape Lincoln, all providing much needed fun and frolics for adults and children alike.
Many of our shops were also taken into consideration. The Waterside Shopping Centre and St Marks Shopping Centre offer great retail, family-friendly facilities and popular restaurants.
The city has seen many sculpture trails and family-friendly trails, including this year's Lincoln Imp Trail, a great way to have fun and explore Lincoln, combining a bit of exercise too.
