Lindum Heritage

About Us

At Lindum Heritage we care passionately about our archaeological and historic past and want everyone to have the best opportunity to explore it through a supportive and high quality experience. Lincolnshire is sometimes regarded of as the forgotten county of England, but the truth is that it has an enormous amount to offer in the areas of archaeology and history. Our short breaks will give you the chance to get to know the city and its surroundings while learning about aspects of the past that you are interested in.

At Lindum Heritage we always strive to improve the already high quality of our courses and welcome comments and suggestions from participants. If you have an idea for a course that you would like to see us run please let us know. We are also able to arrange bespoke courses and tours for groups of any size, large or small.

In 2004 the excellence of the company was publicly recognised when we were declared outright winners of the Lincolnshire and Rutland Future Winning Business Award.

Lindum Heritage also provide a range of specialist services to the heritage sector, both professional and community-based. These include: training courses, heritage interpretation and editorial services, consultancy work, and website design. To give some examples recent activity has included oral history training for a community heritage group and the design and management of a website for the Lincoln Record Society. Contact and find out how we could help your group, company or personal CPD.

Company ethos:
We take our obligations to the county's heritage, environment and communities very seriously. As a result we have adopted a range of policies that guide our course planning and activities. These include sustainable tourism, environmental and disability access policies. A particular aspect of our approach is our involvement in, and support of, community-based heritage projects. Lindum Heritage is a member of Lincolnshire Tourism, the Lincoln Millennium Guild, and a Corporate Friend of Lincoln Cathedral.
