Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Having been of the firm conviction that York Minster was by far the greatest cathedral in England (or even the world), I was stunned to discover that there is a near competitor not far away in Lincoln. This is an awesome building, and whereas I'll still give York 100%, this is certainly 99%, with few other competitors in Europe.

    An excellent church and churchyard. One of Lincolnshire's finest churches with a stunning 14th C gothic exterior and well executed Victorian gothic revival interior. The carvings around the south and north porches are excellent and definitely some are grotesque. A must see if you're nearly. Head off the main street and find Church Walk.

    A church has been here since the 11th century Saxon times and the ancient north wall of Romanesque design is the only part that remains from the original building. The remaining exterior of the building is a mix of Anglo-Norman and Gothic. It is an attractive building with a buttressed and castellated tower, and likewise battlemented nave and chancel.

    Inside it feels like a large parish church with an arcade of pointed arches separating the north aisle and nave. Some notable features of the interior include a font with the heraldic shields of prominent local families, a stained glass of Christ with the four evangelists and a very worn alabaster sarcophagus of a knight and his wife.

    Visited Cherry Willingham to explore this church. This is a lovely Georgian Church built on a hill overlooking Lincolnshire.Really colourful inside and glad to find it open to visitors. The church dates back to 1753 and built of Ancaster limestone. You can see fossils in the stones on the outside.
    The church grounds are interesting too.

    When I was in Lincoln, I walked around the town centre and saw a smallish and old-looking church from across the road, and walked towards it. Turns out that it is St Mary Le Wigford Church, said to be the oldest church in Lincoln. Went in to admire the church. Pretty amazing church.

    We found this lovely church tucked away from the main road. Lovely rural location with views over Lincolnshire. Loved looking around the church and churchyard with parts dating back to the 11th century. The pews and pupit were replaced mid 1800's. Worth visiting if you enjoy exploring churches.

    This has been closed down and turned into a commercial building.
    TripAdvisor have been notified and have replied to me saying they would action this.
    However yet again nothing has happened.

    The building is CLOSED!

    Visited this lovely village church that dates back in parts to several diffrent centuries. When we visited there was a lady organising things for the next day who stopped for a chat and gave us a bit of the histoty which was very good. There are several reference books inside to view as well as a RAF dedicated area and memorial book.
    The church has many points of interest and we found the leaflet really useful.
    Interesting churchyard too.

    This church is located in parkland in the Lincolnshire Limewoods and was built on the site of a 12th centuary Benedictine nunnery.
    The church dates back to 1711.It was open to visit and inside there are some very interesting and old embroideries to view.
    The is a war memorial plaque as well as a stome cross outside in the grounds dedicated to the first world war.
    Really lovely church to visit with a ramp for disabled access.

    This is a lovley historic church surrounded by a deserted medieval village site. The church itself dates back to the 14th centuary and has two bells in its tower one dated 1715.
    Worth visiting especially if you like to explore churches.

    We visited All Saints and discovered the history of Thomas Retford. Thomas gave his life opposing Henry VIII's destruction of the monosteries.
    This historic church has stone medieval faces and a Leper's window as well as other points of interest and is definitely worth visiting if you enjoy exploring churches.

    A church has been here at Scampton since at least the 14th century with the tower dating from that era. Much of the exterior is Neo-Gothic and similar to other parish churches in England. The interiors are a charming mix of old and new. There’s lots of evidence of the original older stonework even if much of it is plastered. The windows are adorned with very modern stained glass windows honouring the church's long connections with the RAF. The connection is also evident on memorials, flags and Squadron badges in the church, especially in the RAF Chapel.
