Best time to visit Lincoln

Like most cities in the UK, it’s possible to see all 4 seasons in one day in Lincoln. Avoid the peak tourist season, and see fresh spring blooms all over the city from March – May, or enjoy the changing colours of the foliage from September – October. The average temperature ranges from 9 – 18 degrees Celsius, and you will get mostly sunny days with a few occasional showers. You’re also likely to find better rates for travel and accommodation during this time. If you visit in the peak summer months from June – August, the average temperature will be around 21 degrees Celsius and days will be long, so you can explore the scenic countryside and enjoy plenty of outdoor activities. During the winter months from December – February, the day temperatures hover around 6 – 7 degrees Celsius. There is a possibility of snowfall, so pack some warm clothing and dress in layers when exploring the outdoors. If you can brave the cool, crisp weather, the Christmas markets and year-end festivities make it an attractive time to visit Lincoln.
