To help inspire you to super dad, mum or relative status, here are some of our top activity picks to try this Easter half-term and beyond.
Explore the city
Walking around the Cathedral grounds and the city itself is the perfect starting point if you’re feeling a bit indecisive on what to do.

Get active at Yarborough Leisure Centre
Burn some of your kid’s energy off by taking them to the Yarborough Leisure Centre in the north of Lincoln.
Over the school holidays, they put on a variety of sports coaching, swimming lessons and sports camps for your little ones to enjoy.
Go ghost hunting
If you’re looking for a day of frills and spills, you can enjoy the haunting stories of the city of Lincoln on its famous ghost walk.
With prices starting from only £3 for children and £5 for adults, this fun Easter half-term activity is shockingly good value for money!
Pick up a crafty bargain at the market
Throughout the year, Lincoln is home to some of the coolest craft markets in the UK. Spend an hour or two getting your little one’s creative juices flowing at a wide-range of unique stalls.
