On the doorstep and nearby
The location of The Rest makes the hotel perfect for a city break, especially if you love history. Lincoln is the only place in the world where you can find original copies of both the 1215 Magna Carta and the 1217 Charter of the Forest, one of only two surviving copies. The two charters are owned by Lincoln Cathedral and are housed in Lincoln Castle.
The Cathedral is one of Europe's finest Gothic buildings and the Castle dates back to 1068. The city is also home to the University of Lincoln and Bishop Grosseteste University.
Further afield, Aubourn Hall Gardens are well worth a visit for nine acres of glorious borders, shrubs, walks and ponds. Aubourn Hall is a magnificent 17th century manor house and the gardens are also open for private bookings by appointment.
