Doddington Hall and Gardens
Take a tour of Doddington Hall where you will be guided through historically interesting artefacts, interiors and stories from 400 years of unbroken family ownership. The Elizabethan manor house is complemented by nurtured gardens showcasing vibrant colours all year round.
This architectural masterpiece is one of Europe’s finest Gothic buildings. With the Norman invasion of Britain in the 11th century, William the Conqueror commissioned Remigius de Fécamp, the first Bishop of Lincoln, to construct this precious sanctuary. Despite its size, Lincoln cathedral is filled with intricate detail. There is something for everyone to see; even children love searching for the Lincoln Imp!
