Normally March offers a chance to celebrate spring with a real bargain – exploring some of Lincolnshire’s top attractions for free.
But this year, the annual Discover Lincolnshire Weekend – when attractions across the county offer free admission or special deals – is set to go digital.
Due to the current Covid restrictions, the majority of this much-loved event is moving online.
So, this year, instead of visiting in person, an array of online content and virtual tours can be enjoyed from the comfort of your own home, 27-28 March 2021.
The event aims to offer a chance for would-be visitors to discover some of Lincolnshire’s top attractions and hidden treasures – and then plan a future visit, when the time is right.
And in the run-up to the Discover Lincolnshire Weekend, past and future visitors are being encouraged to get involved in this digital celebration of Lincolnshire.
More details are set to be revealed over the coming weeks.
But for those who can’t wait until March, there are already some virtual tours and trails available online.
For inspiration, discover a world of rich history at Lincoln Castle, dating back to 1068 and home to one of only four surviving copies of Magna Carta, or explore Mrs Smith’s Cottage, a rare time capsule and a window into the past in Navenby, in the heart of Lincolnshire.
Virtual visitors can also turn the clock back to Roman times for a ‘tour’ of ‘Lindum’, a thriving Roman colony, by following an online trail of the history and heritage that survives to this day in the heritage city of Lincoln.
