Lincoln tourist bus goes back on the road

Open top bus tours have returned to Lincoln, seven years after they were scrapped due to a lack of demand.

In a joint venture between Stagecoach, Visit Lincoln and Lincoln Business Improvement Group, the tours will cover 12 tourist spots across the city.

Matt Corrigan, from Lincoln BIG, said the group was determined to make the new bus "commercially viable".

Tours will begin at Lincoln Cathedral on weekends and bank holidays, and daily in July and August.

Mr Corrigan said: "The old service petered out when the bus needed replacing.

"Buses are expensive items so we want to make it commercially viable and get enough people enjoying it."

The hour-long tour includes stops at Lincoln Castle, Brayford Pool and the Cultural Quarter.
