So today I enjoy Lincoln! After a short walk through Lincoln Castle which is whole working place and you can’t see anything at all and the expensive (8 pounds! After York Minster I didn’t do that) cathedral, I bought some tea in an Asian Tea Shop and at a close Tea Room I ordered chocolate cake and Ear Grey. It is so nice here! Imagine one of those small houses in the streets of Lincoln, in which there are old wooden tables and chairs standing close to each other, a simple white wall with bits of flower tapestry. There is lovely Vintage decoration and music in the background. And here I am and enjoy real English tea in a unique tea pot. hmmm, delicious!
As I said, the castle is a whole working place and I couldn’t take any photographs neither walk into one of the buildings. Not one. The cathedral is beautiful, as she stands on the big hill on top of the city and rises into the sky above the rooftops of the houses.
I think, I’ll have a walk to the harbour now and catch an early train back to the hostel in Nottingham.
Here you can have a really nice life with all these tea rooms and small streets. The High Street offers lots of shops and the people seems to be happy and relaxed. But you need strong legs to climb this hill if you want to reach all these lovely spots. Or you can simply go by bus.
Before I went to the train station, I watched some swans at the harbour. Aren’t they beautiful creatures?
