Lincoln, Lincolnshire Stop for Tea

During our three hour trip to Grimsby, we stopped in Lincoln, Lincolnshire for tea and some sightseeing.  Lincoln has an historic large cathedral and a castle.  
Lincoln Castle

The castle, Lincoln Castle, was built during the late 11th century by William the Conqueror on the site of a pre-existing Roman fortress.  The cathedral, Cathedral Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Lincoln, and seat of the Bishop of Lincoln in the Church of England, was the tallest building in the world for 249 years (1300 - 1549).

Lincoln, Lincolnshire
We stopped for tea in a quaint shop just down the hill and on the same side of the street as the building in the photo named "Magna Carta".  The building was old with the doorway low enough that my son needed to duck to enter the shop.  The food was good, the service quick and we had a nice meal priced for the tourist trade.  We didn't stay long for the meter at the nearby parking lot was running out of time.  We squeezed back into the car and were on our last leg of the trip to Grimsby and Cleethorps.
