Visit Lincoln have shared their top 10 things to do in Lincoln, there's something for everyone in this historical city!

Retail therapy

High-street heaven

The place for all your high-street favourites (as you'd expect from the name) is High Street. Splurge or simply window-shop at House of Fraser, M&S, Dorothy Perkins and Fat Face among many others...

Vintage shops, one-off boutiques and homewares

Heaps of quirky, independent shops can be found on this rather steep and famous hill, imaginatively called Steep Hill. Slowly climb its cobbles and be rewarded with vintage boutiques, bookshops, and foodie emporiums. It's been voted Britain's best street and is a bit like something from a Richard Curtis film.

Label lovers - designer shopping

Feel amazing in some top-notch designer threads, from Paul Smith to Ralph Lauren and Barbour to UGG at Agatha. Once voted Britain's best boutique by Vogue, Agatha on Steep Hill is the place for ladies who like to look sharp. You can afford a treat if you've saved money with cheap train tickets to Lincoln.
