Lincoln Cathedral named among top UK tourist attractions

This story is over

Lincoln Cathedral has been included in Visit England’s 101 Things To Do Before You Go Abroad bucket list this year.

The competition asked people to nominate their very best experiences and Visit England Chairman Lady Cobham said “the selection process wasn’t easy.”

“We have such an embarrassment of riches in this country, that we couldn’t include every single landmark – but the end result is a mix of the most incredible and unique experiences, with something for everyone,” Lady Cobham added.

Emma Tatlow from Visit Lincoln, said: “Anyone who is a regular visitor to Lincoln knows that the Cathedral is among the best in the country, if not the world. And this has now been confirmed through a public vote.

“The competition was tough, with votes coming in for Stonehenge in Wiltshire, Hampton Court Palace and Windsor Castle in London, plus York Minister. But I am delighted that Lincoln Cathedral has been officially recognised as one of our leading national treasures.

“Following the announcement, Lincoln is now being included in a high-profile marketing and PR campaign, led by Visit England, to encourage more UK residents to enjoy the attractions in their country.

Phil Hamlyn Williams, Chief Executive of Lincoln Cathedral, said: “We are thrilled. A number of people recently have remarked on the comparatively small number of visitors we welcome to the Cathedral each year, and so how many are missing out on what is a national treasure.”
