There are plenty of activities for youngsters in the City of Lincoln. Ellis Windmill dates from 1798, though there has been a mill on this site on Mill Road since the mid 17th century. Restored by the Lincoln Civic Trust after they purchased it in 1977, the mill is an ideal family trip. Visitors can learn about how it works and of course climb to the top to get one of the best views of the city. At the end of your visit you can buy some of the flour still ground in the traditional way at the mill.
Lincoln Castle regularly host events aimed at families. The Jousts, medieval re-enactments, Santa’s Grotto and Creepy Castle event at Halloween are just some of the seasonal offers to entertain the children.
The Collection Museum is full of opportunities for children to get involved and there are plenty of costumes available for dressing up.
The Lincoln Trail is about three miles long, and suitable for pushchairs and small children. Taking in most of Lincoln’s famous sights, the trail leads you from clue to clue and can be personalised to make the adventure even more exciting.
