Things to Do

Fancy making a weekend of it for our first League One match for ten years? With the season starting in late July, fingers crossed the weather is decent so Grecians can enjoy the delights of Lincoln - after all, we all know what it's like to LOVE a Roman City. 

Lincoln Cathedral

The Cathedral can be seen from miles around, and even from the stands at LNER Stadium. Explore what was once the tallest building in the world – a place of beauty and tranquillity.

Lincoln Castle

The Castle on the hill was built by William the Conqueror to defend any future invasions of England. And it has stood strong ever since, even in the face of two Battles of Lincoln. Today it holds events, is home to a 1215 copy of Magna Carta, and you can walk the entire walls with stunning views across the city.

Steep Hill

One of the most famous hills in England connects the busy city centre to the cobbled Cathedral Quarter of Lincoln! But fear not, there are plenty of unique shops, tea rooms, coffee houses, and historic pubs along the way to give you a rest and keep you refreshed. 

Brayford Waterfront

The Waterfront is the perfect base for a day in Lincoln with restaurants, pubs, coffee shops, and a cinema for entertainment. You can also take a boat trip to explore more of the area or stay overnight with views from the 4th floor at one of the waterfront hotels.

International Bomber Command Centre

You will often hear echoes of Lincoln’s Royal Air Force past in the stands at LNER Stadium as air raid sirens and the Dam Busters theme are sung by home support. Discover this heritage for yourself just a 20 minute walk away past the South Common at the International Bomber Command Centre.

Pubs for Away Fans

There is a small fan zone located outside the stadium which is for both home and away supporters. It has a number of food outlets, some with local produce and beer is available too. Close to Sincil Bank on the High Street is the Hop and Barley micropub. The Golden Eagle, which is a Castle Rock Brewery pub is also recommended. If arriving by train then not far from the station is the Marina area, which has a number of eating and drinking places, including a Wetherspoons pub called the Square Sail. When trying to find the Marina area, just look out for the large Odeon Cinema building, which is also on the same complex. Also near to Lincoln Railway Station is the Treaty of Commerce.

Total Distance

The postcode for the LNER Stadium is LN5 8LD. It should take around four hours and fourty five minutes each way from Exeter.
