A few minutes’ walk from the self-catering cottage at 24 Burton Road, is the iconic Castle Hill. Situated in between the castle entrance and the stupefyingly beautiful West Front of Lincoln Cathedral, this area is bustling with stall holders on market day. Lincoln Makers’ Market is there from March on the first Saturday of the month and here you will find locally made crafts, toys, glass, jewelry, ceramics.
If your stay at 24 Burton Road does not coincide with the first Saturday of the month, there are other opportunities – the Brocante Market or the Farmers’ markets. Check availability

Even if you don’t make one of these colourful events, the shopping down Steep Hill into the High Street is excellent and I doubt you will come away empty-handed.
