Venues and locations

The Collection

Tel: 01522 552121
Directions: The Collection is located on Danes Terrace (LN2 1LP) in the centre of Lincoln. It is always a good idea to check for road works and road closures before setting off. There are numerous one-way and restricted access streets in the vicinity. There is car park next to the museum, but it is limited to 28 spaces and it would only be suitable for smaller minibuses or cars. At the time of writing there is a charge of £5 for four hours.
