About Lincoln

Lincoln is a unique multi-cultural city and one of the fastest growing in the UK. Despite this it still retains the same quaintness and charm of smaller cities by managing to blend its historic past with the contemporary seamlessly, making for a dynamic and exciting place to live and work

Lincoln – Our Beautiful and Historic Home

Lincoln is a truly unique city – the Romans thought so when they set up camp here almost 2,000 years ago and we’d tend to agree with them (although we’re probably a little biased!). The city has been a key player during most periods of history, with huge amounts of Roman, Medieval, Victorian, wartime and modern history to be found all over the city.

In recent years, the city has matured into a thriving cultural hotspot – a heady mixture of old and new, historic and contemporary, traditional and cutting edge. And most importantly, it’s also extremely student-friendly. With students making up a significant proportion of the population of the city you can be sure that when you arrive here you’ll be in good company.

Where is it?

Lincoln is in the heart of England in the East Midlands, ideally placed to give you easy access to Nottingham, Sheffield and the coast. It’s got good road and rail links with the rest of the UK, which makes travelling around much easier. And if you’re the type who likes to jet off regularly to a warmer climate, it’s got three international airports close by in Humberside, Doncaster Sheffield and Nottingham East Midlands.

The city is really easy to navigate and is essentially split into two halves, linked by the aptly named Steep Hill. Don’t be put off by this though – it might be steep but it’s well worth the walk, as there are many independent and quirky shops to make the journey easier (and your wallet lighter). In fact, Steep Hill itself is a recent winner of Britain’s Best Street Award due to its uniqueness and range of wonderful boutiques. Within the Cathedral Quarter, uphill, lies the more historic side of the city, with it’s beautiful cobbled streets, cosy tea rooms, the majestic Cathedral (third largest in the UK), the magnificent hilltop Castle and of course, the BGU Campus.

Downhill is the more modern city centre where you’ll find the busy High Street. Here, large international brands sit side by side with local retailers, giving plenty of choice to the discerning shopper. Lincoln’s numerous cafes, restaurants and coffee shops will give you the much needed time to sit and relax after a busy day of shopping and exploring. Further south into the city is the Brayford Waterfront standing on the banks of the River Witham. You can take a tour of the city by boat or just sit and watch the world go by in one of the many bars or restaurants overlooking the water.

Lincoln is a city that needs to be explored and experienced. We guarantee that you will fall in love and will want to stay. Find out more on the ‘useful information‘ page.

 

“Lincoln is a great city! It has everything any student would want. The Cathedral and the Bailgate area provide beautiful and historical interest while downhill has lots of trendy bars and clubs with great places to eat and excellent shopping.”
Tom, BGU graduate
