Tour of Lincoln Cathedral and Castle

We have a trip to Lincoln Cathedral reaching its final stages of planning as I write.

It’s on the 20th January, which is a SATURDAY.


There will be no tickets on sale here but they will be available at the ticket office at the Cathedral on the day.

There are two tours of the Cathedral, one on the ground floor and the other on the roof. Dress in warm clothing for both. Its organised by Club member Carol Heidschuster, who is the Works Manager at the Cathedral Works Department.


  • Floor tour (Gift Aided and come as often as you like) £6.40 - 60 minute tour starting at 10:00
  • Roof Tour - an additional £4 per person to any other tour starting at 1:00 and lasting 90 minutes
  • Joint Ticket for a Castle and Cathedral Tour is £13 for concessions and £16 for adults.
  • Castle ground are free and need no tickets
  • All tickets will be purchased on the day.


To help the Cathedral with staffing for the tour, please email me at or phone m on 01484 844 920 or 07474 272 656 and let me know which tours you will be attending.


Meet at 9:50a.m. at the Park and Ride outside Waitrose on Searby Road, Lincoln, LN2 4DS. Let’s start the year with a BANG

 Buses leave at 9:10, 09.25, 09.40, and 09.55 for the short (3-4 minutes) drive to the Cathedral.

Get off at Northgate which is the first stop.


New - Castle Tour

We also have the opportuinity to tour the Castle, courtesy of Mick Bath, who is a club member and also works as a guide at the Castle. It's a tight schedule to do all three tours, so will need careful timing. People wishing to do the Castle tour will need to visit the Castle in the afternoon, and so must also select which tour of the Cathedral, roof or floor that they wish to do.

It also depends on how many people will be present.


Park and ride is recomended from Waitrose on Searby Road, Lincoln, LN2 4DS

  • Nettleham Road: the inbound stop is adjacent to KFC opposite the Waitrose car park
