Lincoln University Student City GuideSee All Student City Guides
Lincoln is a city based in the East Midlands and boasts a rough population of 94,600 according to the most recent figures. The city has been a figure of education within the UK for decades, and it certainly lives up to its reputation.
Lincoln is full of history, and its heritage is something that the city celebrates very passionately. The city has a handful of museums to commemorate their history including the Museum of Lincolnshire Life, The Collection, and the Usher Gallery, all of which are available and affordable to all members of the public.
Lincoln has a number of cinemas too. If you’re looking to grab the very best in upcoming films from Hollywood, then we recommend heading to the local Odeon. However, if you’re looking for more independent films, then we recommend joining one of the city’s many film societies which will allow you to do so.
There are plenty of people that come from Lincoln including; John Hurt, Penelope Fitzgerald, George Boole, Sir Francis Hill and Steve Race.
We always want to visit the places that have the very best regarding nightlife, and it’s even better when we study there! Lincoln is no different; there’s everything that you could need to be offered here, so we’ve compiled a list of three places that we think will be right up your alley!
The Strugglers Inn, is our first suggestion and it’s a slightly more chilled out atmosphere than you might be used (It runs a book club on some nights), but it’s also a perfect place to enjoy a drink and to eat and spend time with friends. It’s a night out but a more relaxed one than other places, so you can get the best of both worlds!
The Engine Shed is very different from The Strugglers Inn, although it has live comedy, it’s also at the forefront of live music too, with live DJ sets or getting artists that are big in the charts right now coming in too! Definitely worth looking into, you’ll be coming back time after time after time, we promise.
The Strait and Narrow is our third and final place we recommend. This bar has a very pleasant and enticing aroma, and although it seems to be a hybrid of bar, restaurant, live music and pub, so they will have something that will attract you, guaranteed!
Lincoln has many activities that bring the community together including the Lincoln Book Festival, the Gainsborough Old Hall Beer Festival, and Asylum Steampunk Festival all of which are available for the public to visit and are affordable too; we recommend that you go along and see what all the fuss is about!
Lincoln has a wide variety of transportation services that are available for people including bus routes and train services, but also if you’re looking to take a mini-break abroad or something then Lincoln Airport will be of service as it flies all over the world and is accessible once you’ve booked your flights!
