Brayford Waterfront

KOMPAS Lincoln Instagram blog (19 March 2017)

As things start to warm up (and we return from our unplanned hiatus – sorry about that!) we just can’t stop thinking about one spot in Lincoln that oozes those chilled-out summery vibes everyone starts to crave around this time of year… At the heart of the city, Lincoln’s stunning Brayford Waterfront is a go-to for students, shoppers and visitors on the hunt for al fresco dining, poolside drinks or an afternoon at the Odeon. But who knew that all this time, we were actually enjoying a saunter down England’s oldest inland harbour?! Turns out Lincoln’s entire history revolves around this little downtown oasis. Even our original name, Lindon, is based around it (“Lin” means pool, and “don” means foot of the hill). And where would we be today without all that money medieval Lincoln made from trading wool up and down the River Witham?! We owe a lot to the humble Brayford – not least one of the coolest-looking Wagamamas in the UK… #Lincoln #Brayford #BrayfordPool #MedievalEngland #Lincolnshire #LincolnHistory #BrayfordWaterfront #Wagamama #OdeonLincoln #Odeon #VisitLincoln #Walk #Waterfront #UKHistory #RiverWitham
