It is a timely reminder to visitors that sites in Lincolnshire have often been top picks for location scouts looking for scenic and historic buildings, quaint streets and quintessentially British landscapes.

Lincoln Castle has also featured in Downton Abbey as it was used as a setting during the filming process, as author of the series Julian Fellowes had the location in mind when he wrote the series.

Also, Lincoln Cathedral has acted as Westminster Abbey in the film adaptation of Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code featuring Tom Hanks, and was used in The Young Victoria, starring Emily Blunt.
