Lincoln Cathedral is one of Europe's finest Gothic buildings and was once described by Victorian writer John Ruskin as "out and out the most precious piece of architecture in the British Isles and roughly speaking worth any two other cathedral we have".
When the central spire was raised in 1300 it became the tallest building in the world, taking the title from the Great Pyramid of Giza.
The carvings are fascinating to see, in particular the famous Lincoln Imp!
The Cathedral owns one of only four surviving copies of Magna Carta signed in 1215 and is well worth a visit.
