Steeped in history - this is central the social and political history of the city. Fascinating stories about events in the city that made it the place it is. The civic insignia room is staggering. So many priceless artifacts

Perfect couple of hours on a wet December afternoon. Knowledgeable guy that took us around and happy to answer all questions, no matter how trivial. If I have one tip - its ask about the photo of the dog - Enjoy!

You can feel the history in the council chamber where the city council have been making their deliberations for hundreds of years. Well worth a visit and has a lovely view of the high Street.

Glad you enjoyed your visit. The chamber has been used for at least 500 years in it's current form, a special place in Lincoln's history.

We visited on a Saturday morning and were treated to an entertaining and educational tour of the building. Our guide was a fount of knowledge of anything to do with Lincoln and deftly took us through its history from the Roman times to today.
