Went up to Lincoln yesterday to see Guy Gibson`s VC. The whole display is quite small and didn`t really take very long to go round.

Re parking. It all got a bit weary I`m afraid. Pulled in at the front of the Museum and went in to ask about the best place to park, thinking there might be a nice little spot for two bikes. But no-one was particularly helpful, so went round the block and pulled in on some space outside their café which looked ideal, however, got told to move them (the ladies in the café thought having the bikes there was fun and were very chatty, they thought being told to move was a bit jobs worth). The one thing they were helpful about was telling me we would be ticketed if we parked on the pavement. But we ended up on the pavement by some pedal cycle bays opposite the Café Portico. Didn`t get ticketed. I think someone has put that location in as a parking spot on an earlier entry. This is at Flaxengate j/w Grantham Street. There are 2 pay and display car parks very close by but they are quite small and were full up, one is opposite the entrance to the Museum in Danes Terrace, the other is at the back of the museum in Danesgate. It took longer to park than it did to go round the exhibition. Still the café there is fine.

The parking location I posted earlier always have motorcycle there but I’m told that it’s not officially for motorbikes so there is a chance of being ticked. The nearest car park with dedicated mot bike bays is Broadgate about 5 mins walk away.
