There’s also the opportunity to see lots of other animals such as penguins, meerkats, alpacas, tropical birds, and butterflies – plus there’s also an aquarium, tropical house, koi carp pool, and gift shop for souvenirs, too.
3. Soak up some culture on Steep Hill
The infamous walk up Steep Hill in the heart of Lincoln leads to and from Lincoln Cathedral, Lincoln Castle, and the Cathedral Quarter.
