New Homes in Lincoln
At the heart of the east of England, Lincoln is one of our most historic and interesting cities.
Surrounded by rich farmland and rolling green fields, Lincoln has a great cathedral, a Norman castle, medieval Bishop’s Palace and historic cobbled streets.
Lincoln Cathedral is one of the finest gothic buildings in Europe and, at the time of its completion, was believed to be the tallest man made structure on earth. The Cathedral sits proudly atop the aptly named ‘Steep Hill’, a fascinating medieval street named ‘Britain’s Greatest Street’ in 2012.
Transport Links in Lincoln
Lincoln enjoys the best of both worlds. On one hand it’s surrounded by some of England’s most beautiful countryside, while on the other, it’s within comfortable driving distance of major population centres in Yorkshire and the East Midlands. Leeds is about an hour and a half away by car and train, while Sheffield, Derby and Leicester are just over an hour’s journey.
The A1, and recently upgraded A46, connect LIncoln with the North, South and West. A direct train from Lincoln Central railway station means London is now only 2 hours away.
Lincoln has three airports within easy reach. Robin Hood and Humberside Airports are around 30 miles away, while East Midlands lies just 50 miles to the West.
A short drive from Lincoln are the Lincolnshire Wolds, a designated ‘Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty’. The Wolds present active families with an ideal opportunity to pull on their walking boots, or get on their bikes, and explore this unspoilt and truly inspiring expanse of countryside.
Lincoln is also close to some of our most beautiful coastline. From famous seaside towns like Skegness and Cleethorpes with their award winning beaches, to quieter more secluded beauty spots like Muttofts and Chapel Six Marshes.
If your family loves golden sandy beaches, then Lincolnshire has some of the very best in the whole country to explore.
Every December, within its medieval market square, Lincoln also stages one of the most magical Christmas markets in Europe.
A Great Place to Live
The world famous Red Arrows aerobatics display team already call the area home, as do many independent shops and businesses. If you love sausages, unsurprisingly, the city’s butchers have the best Lincolnshire Sausages to be tasted anywhere.
Lincoln’s unique combination of urban living, beautiful countryside, good transport links and its long and illustrious heritage, make it the perfect place for a wide variety of people to set up home.
