I've Got a Lovely Sightsee Treat For You - Lincoln City, So Enjoyed the Tour!

Aviw of Castle square - which is not a square at all.  In the foreground is the cobbled surface of the open space which is surrounded by historic buildings.  From left to right, the regency assembly rooms, a georgian 3 story house, then Leigh-Pemberton house: a half-timbered building with the upper story jettied out.  Then a medieval church and the entance to the Cathedral cclose.  In the left distance the towers of the cathedral rise into a blue sky.

Well, hello there everyone! I am Alaba Saliu from Lincoln, the cathedral city and county of Lincolnshire, England.  Today, I am pleased as dove to introduce my lovely city to you.

The Londoners are so much warmer than Lincoln people in this time of the year J
I brought along some photos of my city for you.

From the first picture above, my city looks like an old village J, but once inside it magically, surrounded with water, windmills, castle and lovely historic building.
I still can’t figure out why the people living in Lincoln are so fabulous and convivial.  JJJJJJ 
I have to tell you that the very first time I ever stepped my foot in this city, I didn’t have to go any farther than the cathedral, to know it was meant to be my municipality. I just had an overwhelming feeling that I was meant to live here.

Plus, I didn’t get the feeling like there were any chauvinistic living here, so yeah that was another reason J  
Lincoln Cathedral floats high above the city and can be seen for miles around in every direction.  It's a sight that has welcomed visitors for nearly a thousand years.

Lincoln city is a tourist centre and those who come to visit the numerous historic buildings including the cathedral, the castle, and the Medieval Bishop's Palace also visit the Waterside empowerment sculpture. It’s very peaceful.

Let’s start the tour with the Lincoln BIG Mini day

I have a little thing about cool and quirky Mini cars for different reasons and sometimes I just can’t wait to drive one of those mini cars. I blame it on my love for driving small but portable car J
If someone put a glue gun to my head and made me describe Lincoln High street shopping centre, in addition to my afro kinky hair, I would say it has cutting end fashion shops/fine antique shops/individually owned specialist shops/high street fashion store…….

I love shopping at Lincoln because all my favourite high street stores can be found on Lincoln’s bustling and vibrant high street which boasts two superb shopping centres, indoor markets, and a variety of places to eat and drink.
