Things to do in Lincoln - The Lincoln Treasure Trail

Please Note: As much as we love people exploring on our Trails, now is not the right time. We want to help the NHS and protect all of you, so have decided to remove the facility for any Trail sales to be made on our website. As soon as social restrictions are relaxed, we'll make the Trails available again. If you would like to be informed as soon as this is, please drop us a note on the contact page.

Need a bit of retail therapy, or want to get a gift? You can still buy gift vouchers for future use.

The Lincoln Cathedral Quarter Treasure Trail starts at:

Drury Lane
Lincoln
Lincolnshire
LN1 3BN
England

Please Note:

This route is friendly for wheelchair users and pushchairs, although expect to negotiate some cobbles.

Bring your four-legged friends along! Please note that it is a busy city centre so dogs will need to be kept on leads.

The closest long stay pay and display car parks to the Trail start point are the Westgate Car Parks, just a five minute walk away. 

There are some fantastic events in Lincoln’s calendar, all of which are fantastic times to visit this beautiful city. However, you may find that some of the Clues on this Trail may become obstructed or difficult to access. If you would like further information about event dates, please contact Lincoln Visitor Information.

There are public toilets available towards the beginning of the Trail and the route passes several pubs and a few cafes along the way. 

Why not make a day of it and visit the stunning Lincoln Cathedral and incredible Lincoln Castle (home to one of the last surviving copies of the Magna Carta!) or maybe you could spend your afternoon strolling around the tranquil John Dawber Gardens – it’s a great picnic spot!
