Top 5 Little-Known Things To Do for Students in Lincoln
Looking for an adventurous day out in Lincoln with your friends? Or maybe you need some good icebreaker locations to bond with people in your student accommodation? These little-known things to do for students in Lincoln will be a great start to a day full of fun.
Axed Global and Urban Putters
If you’ve been on Tik Tok or Instagram recently you’ll know the craze of indoor axe throwing and crazy golf, so why not give it a try? Axed Global offers innovative Smart Lanes so you can play mini-games like naughts and crosses with steel axes, to really get those competitive friends going. It’s a great stress reliever to really alleviate the burdens of uni life and get those muscles pumping by throwing 1.25 lbs of forged steel. Also featuring a bar full of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks, so you know you’ll be in for a night of great fun.
Urban Putters features a great bar and pizza restaurant for those who want to put the crazy into golf. With strange graffiti walls, a festival portaloo and half of a Mini, this event will have you snapping pictures and smacking your golf ball into a toilet.
See an original copy of the Magna Carta
The Magna Carta, signed and sealed more than 800 years ago, laid the foundations for the rule of law and individual rights in Britain, and its influence has reverberated across the globe. Only four original copies of the Magna Carta survive today and one of them is right here in Lincoln. It hasn’t left the city since 1215 when the Bishop of Lincoln delivered it back to the Cathedral. You can see this original copy on the grounds of the stunning Lincoln Castle, which is a spectacle to behold. For those budding history enthusiasts, this is a prime place to visit.
Tension Twisted Realities
Tension Twisted Realities is an entertainment centre offering seven, award-winning escape rooms and four trippy virtual reality booths. These escape rooms are a creative twist on real-life events and throw you and your friends into solving puzzles and riddles while trying to escape this different universe you’ve found yourself in.
Their virtual reality booths use HTC Vive Pros and Mobile VR Headsets to offer you hundreds of different experiences to try. Fall into a VR game that has you enter the pixelated world or find yourself flying across the world to view Mount Everest and the International Space Centre.
Lincoln Ghost Walk
Lincoln hosts an award-winning ghost walk that has been running since 1996. The two hosts don black capes and tell you about their own ghostly experiences in their haunted cottage in Lincoln. With tickets at just £7.50 and no need to book, this is a cheap and brilliant experience for students who want spooky stories to share with friends and family.
Lost Village Festival
During the end of August bank holiday weekend, a secluded woodland area between Lincoln and Newark is transformed to bring top music and comedy acts to the wilderness. The festival has a quirky lost-in-the-woods vibe and a characterful setting to match. In previous years the festival has featured acts like Bombay Bicycle Club, Friendly Fires, Everything Everything, and Craig Charles. This creative festival is a great introduction to what Lincoln offers for first years and it makes a perfect opportunity for a reunion for second-year students to see their friends again, and a bittersweet celebration for those Third Year graduates who want to say one last thank you to Lincoln.
