The county town of Lincolnshire is Lincoln, where you can visit the cities castle and cathedral and the Collection museum and gallery, which has exhibits of local archaeology and displays of clocks, furniture and paintings by artists such as Joseph Mallord William Turner and L.S.

Built during the 15th century, Gainsborough Old Hall is a medieval manor house, which is Grade One listed and an English Heritage property. In the past the hall was visited by historical figures such as Henry VIII, the Pilgrim Fathers and John Wesley. Visitors today can appreciate the Tudor and Jacobean interior furnishings and restored wall paintings, dating from the 17th century. The Great hall and medieval kitchen remain much as they would have been during previous centuries and people wearing period costumes add to the sense of history. The hall also serves as venue for a variety of events, such as theatre performances. Other attractions in Lincolnshire include Grimsthorpe Castle near Bourne, Caistor Arts and Heritage Centre, the Museum of Lincolnshire Life and Donna Nook Nature Reserve.
