Lincoln is a cathedral city which is situated in the East Midlands. It is located approximately 150 miles away from London and just 40 miles from Nottingham. The nearest airport to Lincoln is East Midlands Airport. The train station offers regular rail services to other major cities with a journey to London taking around two hours.

Lincoln is an interesting city with a rich and varied history which in some places, dates back over two thousand years. During the Norman era, several impressive buildings were constructed including Lincoln Castle and the impressive Cathedral and by the time of the Industrial Revolution, Lincoln had established itself as an important centre for industry.

Factories and textile mills were in abundance and the arrival of the railway in the mid nineteenth century further boosted the city’s economy. Engineering and manufacturing were in full swing and was home to several important machinery manufacturers. Printing was also gaining popularity for Lincoln with several large printing companies operating in the area, producing a wide range of materials.

Today, Lincoln has a diverse economy with a range of key sectors which contribute towards the continued growth and prosperity of the city. These sectors include manufacturing and engineering, logistics, infrastructure, health care, agrifood, energy and environmental technology, digital and creative industries, retail and education. Additionally, tourism is of significance for the economy as Lincoln is a popular visitor destination thanks to the historic architecture and cultural attractions. Many large and well known companies have a notable presence within the city.

The popular University of Lincoln offers students excellent education combined with world class research and has been shortlisted in every major category for the WhatUni Student Choice Awards 2024.

Aviation has always played a part in the city and three major RAF bases near to Lincoln remain active and at its peak, Lincoln was one of the largest producers of aircraft globally. You can often watch The Red Arrows flying over Lincoln with the city being their home.

There's so much to discover in Lincoln. The stunning Gothic Cathedral which was originally built in 1072 is a very popular attraction, as is Lincoln Castle which is only one of four surviving copies of Magna Carta and The International Bomber Command Centre which marks both the services and the sacrifices of World War 2 staff who lost their lives.

The Museum of Lincolnshire Life is not to be missed and is situated in the city’s Cathedral Quarter which is where you will find an abundance of independent retailers as well as wonderful places to stay and numerous delicious cafes and restaurants..

In the city itself, you will find a wealth of entertainment such as theatre, museums, art, bars and  cafes. Shopping is an exciting experience whether you stroll around the Cathedral Quarters’ cobbled streets, meander through the Cultural Quarter or enjoy the hustle and bustle of the Cornhill Centre. Lincoln is surrounded by countryside and the Lincolnshire coast is not too far away with fabulous seaside resorts such as Skegness and Mablethorpe.

The city of Lincoln is both safe and friendly so it is of little surprise to find out that Lincoln was recently voted as being one of the best cities for families in the UK and the best place to live in the Midlands. It is an exceptional city in which to live, study and work as it offers a unique blend of historical charm and modern opportunities.

The next event being hosted by the UK Careers Fair will be held on April 11th between 10am - 2pm. The venue is the County Assembly Rooms, LN1 3AR. This beautiful building dates from the first half of the 18th century, having been built in 1745 and is a Grade 11 listed building. Only a short walk from both the Cathedral and the Castle, it offers all the modern amenities of a luxurious establishment that caters for an array of occasions from weddings to business events.
