Lincoln can certainly be called a Mecca for those who want to enjoy a day out shopping. There is a wide range of shopping centres and high streets to choose from. Bailgate in particular is worth checking out for its independent boutiques. It is not just a good merchant hub but also an ideal tourist destination. This area also has several coffee shops to rest in between shopping binges.

Big brand clothing outlets can be found in the main street. This is the place to go if you want to visit department stores, as well as popular clothing shops. However, Lincoln does not solely cater to clothes shoppers.
