    Love this bit of Lincoln as its

    a) old
    b) well known meeting place
    c) has a clock on it so ideal for time.

    I often meet people here as its well known landmark in Lincoln to meet.

    It has a lot of history to it, i feel people really dont notice it that much as its lost that touch to people about the historical side of it.

    Five stars for the coolness of walking through the Stonebow and thinking you are drunk.
    This place leans!
    It separates upper and lower Lincoln.
    A gateway has stood here for over 1800 years, although the present building was not completed until 1520. So not that ols then :) No wonder it leans.

    The Guildhall is the official home of the Mayor and occupies the whole of the second floor of the Stonebow. The Guildhall is still used today for Council meetings. It opens on Heritage days and maybe others although you can book party tours. The City's administration have met in the Council Chamber for many centuries from the medieval Gild Merchant to its modern day descendant of the City Council.
    Inside the Guildhall is the old debtors prison which now houses the City's Civic Insignia including the Royal Sword presented by Richard II and the Mayor's Mace presented by Charles II.

    I love that they say this in their guideIt must also be borne in mind that some of the floor areas are a little uneven and there a few additional steps to be careful of when walking about the building. Have they not noticed the whole thing leans!!??? Actually it doesn't if you have a few drinks before looking at it.

    A great meeting place in the middle of Lincoln that everyone just takes for granted. Next time when you pass take a moment to have a look at what you arte passing through. That is of course if you aren't hassled by the ever present charities collectors.

    Very pretty to view, but not much more to it than that. It's iconic to Lincoln itself - I'll meet you at the Stonebow. Yet another beautifully historic part of Lincoln.
