Lincoln is one of the most intriguing historic cities in England, bursting with history. Lincoln Cathedral is the third-largest cathedral in England, a magnificent example of medieval architecture. In the shadow of the cathedral is the medieval Bishop's Palace, while a short distance away is Lincoln Castle, begun by William the Conqueror. Everywhere you look are reminders that Lincoln was a Roman city long before William and his Normans came. Stroll down cobbled Step Hill (which is, as its name suggests, very steep), past Norman stone buildings and timber-framed houses. At the base of Steep Hill is High Street, where you pass through Stonebow, a Tudor Gothic gateway. The Guildhall, where the city council still meets, is in a chamber over the gateway.
