B and Bs in Lincoln
Kim and Jeff Longmuir welcome you to The Tennyson. The Tennyson is located in Lincoln, a magnificent city in the East Midlands of England with much to offer all visitors to see and do in picturesque and historical surroundings. The Romans established a port, Lindum Colonia, and it is at the cross roads of two Roman roads: Ermine Street and The Fosse Way. the Normans built a castle, and the mediaeval bishops built a magnificent cathedral. Why not come and see the restored gothic friezes or see if you can find the Lincoln Imp within? Across a square lined with beautiful mediaeval houses from the cathedral you will find a Norman fort-Lincoln Castle. The Victorians built a prison in the Norman castle. Inside the castle you can see a copy of the Magna Carta - the first charter of rights, and a historic prison chapel from when prisoners were kept in full isolation. Why not finish your visit with a walk along the castle walls to see spectacular views across Lincolnshire. Lincoln has earned more recent notoriety as where the battle tank was invented and built in the First World War. Lincolnshire was the home of the Bomber Force in the Second World War. Recently Lincoln has established its own University. Lincoln is also a great place to shop with modern centres and malls alongside the River Witham, and the old railway station at St Marks. The main high street runs through the Stonebow: part of the original town walls. Specialist bookshops and antiques can be found up Steep Hill and in and off the square linking the cathedral and castle. In the evening, what could be more pleasant than a stroll along the High Street seeking out a suitable restaurant under the magnificent spectacle of the floodlit cathedral. Lincoln is blessed with a great variety of restaurants and to help you in your choice we provide a restaurant guide in your room.
