Lincoln Trip -- 23/12/2006

Anu and I decided to pay a visit to the famous Lincoln City for its Famous Mince Pie and the Cathedral!

A bit info intro... as you approach the City of Lincoln, from any direction, you are drawn to the magnificent silhouette of the Cathedral stretching to the skies, brooding over 2000 years of history. From the cobbled streets and antiques to the modern art scattered throughout the city, the past and present is all around. There's vibrancy, there's interest, there's fun! Ahem, ok I didn't write that, it's an extract from the Lincoln Tourism Board.

But honestly, it is really a peaceful, and a scenic city. It especially famous for the beauty of the cathedral, which even attracted Ron Howard to film The DA Vinci Code here! I got photos for you, Enjoy!!!

We surely enjoy the trip there. Even though it is simple, but the by witnessing the great architectural design (Gothic design by the way) of the Cathedral will definitely worth all the effort we have made in!
