Description
Standing almost in the shadow of Lincoln cathedral, with sweeping views over the ancient city and the countryside beyond, the medieval Bishops’ Palace was once among the most important buildings in the country. The administrative centre of the largest diocese in medieval England, stretching from the Humber to the Thames, its architecture reflected enormous power and wealth.

Explore the site as part of a day out in Lincoln. Guided by our audio tour, see the undercrofted East Hall and also the chapel range and entrance tower built by Bishop William Alnwick, who modernised the palace in the 1430s.

Relax and enjoy the unique contemporary Heritage Garden, a haven of peace and tranquillity.
