Lincoln In May

Now that we’re in the full throws of Spring, it’s time to take a look at a few of the fantastic things you can get up to when visiting Lincoln at this fabulous time of year.

There’s no better time to enjoy Lincolnshire’s idyllic countryside than during Spring and our chalk streams are sure to leave a lasting impact on any visitor. The chalk streams are a characteristic and truly picturesque part of our beautiful county and have helped shape the Lincolnshire Wolds for more the 10,000 years.

Much of the rolling hills and of the Lincolnshire Wolds have underlaying chalk and it’s no wonder they have been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Now’s the time to visit, as the streams begin bursting with life once more.

Once you’ve enjoyed the surrounding countryside, it’s time to head back into central Lincoln. On the White Hart Hotel’s doorsteps are some of the city’s most famous attractions, including the magnificent Cathedral, of which you’ll get no better views than from our very own balcony.

Opposite that is the historic Lincoln Castle, which is home to the Magna Carta. It’s a wonderful time of year to come and enjoy panoramic views of Lincoln from the Castle’s walls before sitting down on the grass to enjoy an ice cream!

‘I love Lincoln in Spring,’ explains the White Hart Hotel’s general manager Ian Robinson.

‘There are so many things to do in Lincoln all year round, we’re very lucky to have so much going on, but you cannot beat being in Lincoln during the Spring and Summer months. If you’re thinking of visiting us during the next few months, now’s the time to book because we fill up quickly at this time of year.’
