A cathedral city which once had a spire taller than the pyramids, Lincoln is a popular tourist destination thanks to the cathedral, castle and other historical sights. Transport to and from Lincoln is a little limited with the nearest motorway being the M1 (30 miles away). This has also benefitted the city allowing for it to become the central urban hub with a no significant rivals nearby. Obvious sectors benefitting from this 'mini monopoly' are shopping and nightlife. Both of which are extensive and a huge benefit to the centrally located university.
