Visitor pass introduced to boost city tourism

A new card scheme is hoping to encourage tourism within the city by offering visitors a discount on entry to key Lincoln locations.

The new Visit Lincoln Pass provides sightseers with a way to visit the city’s main attractions at a discounted rate.

Priced at £12 per person, or £35 for a family of five, the Visit Lincoln Pass gives holders unlimited entry to Lincoln’s Cathedral, Lincoln Castle, and the Bishops’ Palace over a three-day period.

In addition to the reduced entry fees the pass also provides discounts on guided walking tours and all purchases made at The Collection, the Museum of Lincolnshire Life and the Lincoln Visitor Information Centre.

Chief Executive of Lincoln BIG Matt Corrigan detailed that the take up of the passes since going on sale earlier this week had been good, and those that order the Visit Lincoln Pass can collect them at the Castle Hill Lincoln Visitor Information Centre, or have them delivered anywhere in the UK for just £1.

For those wishing to find out more about the pass information is available at the Visit Lincoln Pass website, the Lincoln Visitor Information Centre or in the Summer 2011 issue of the Welcome to Lincoln magazine.
