The construction of the cathedral started in 1072 and was finished in 1092, when they finished in 1092 it did not look how it looks today, throughout history they have been adding bits to the cathedral which you can find out all about by visiting the cathedral. Just a stone’s throw away from the cathedral you will find Lincoln Castle, it is only one of two in the country that is surrounded by two mottes.

It is home to only one of four original copies of the Magna Carta which is known as one of the most important events in the history of the world. The university was built near the water which originated as a Roman port due to its access to North Sea.
