Things to do FOR FREE on Discover Lincolnshire Weekend

Discover the wonders of yellowbelly county this weekend with free tours and events.

The annual celebration on Saturday 30 and Sunday 31 March will mark the beginning of English Tourism Week.

Highlights include free entry to Lincoln Cathedral, tours of Lincoln Castle grounds, an open day at Lincoln Guildhall and free rides on the open-top sightseeing bus tour.

If all of that walking gets you a little hungry then pop down to the Lincoln Street Food Festival for some international delights.

Outside the city, Gainsborough Heritage Centre and Metheringham Airfield Visitor Centre are also offering free entry.
