With Father’s Day on the horizon, you may be tempted to panic-buy yet another tie, pair of socks or joke book for dear-old-dad. While we cannot fault the classics, you may be looking to do something a bit different this year, which will knock off last year’s socks! If so, don’t worry – we’ve got you covered!
To make sure that all the wonderful dads of Lincolnshire and beyond have a Father’s Day to remember, The White Hart Hotel has put together this guide to help you plan an amazing, fun-filled day!
Explore Lincoln Castle & the Medieval Wall Walk
Just a stone’s throw away from The White Hart Hotel, Lincoln Castle is an impressive sight and home to a fascinating history and heritage. Whether you simply want to explore the stunning castle grounds, enjoy an informative tour, or view the 1215 Magna Carta, the castle promises a fantastic day out for all!
Within the castle walls, there is also a Georgian and Victorian Prison that holds a fascinating history to be uncovered. You can also explore the walls of the castle on the Medieval Wall Walk, that offers stunning views over this historic and picturesque city.
Be dazzled by Lincoln’s stunning, medieval Cathedral
A few steps away from The White Hart Hotel, our guests enjoy stunning views of this gothic, architectural spectacle. Renowned for once having been the tallest building in the world, the Cathedral is a must-see for anyone visiting Lincoln.
It offers a range of tours, exploring the floor, roof and towers – giving you spectacular views of the whole city. And while you’re there, you can see if you can find the legendary Lincoln Imp in the Cathedral’s intricate stonework!
