LINCOLN : The Cathedral and the Medieval City
Monday 1 July – Thursday 4 July 2019
John Ruskin passionately declared, “…out and out the most precious piece of architecture in the British Isles and roughly speaking worth any two other cathedrals we have”; tallest building in the world for more than 300 years; commissioned by William the Conqueror, it was destroyed by an earthquake in 1185; the centre of the largest medieval diocese, extending from the Humber to the Thames; home to one of only four surviving copies of Magna Carta and a tall history.
White Hart Hotel, a fine traditional hotel, is located immediately adjacent to the Cathedral and Castle. There has been an inn on the site of the hotel since the 15th century and the oldest part of the building dates back to 1710.
