The team at Loc8me we are a friendly bunch, and we like to make sure all of our tenants get settled into their accommodation before the academic year begins.

Our friendly team is here to help, including recommending local places to go when you want to wind down after a long day at uni.

In this blog, we take a look at some of the top student attractions in Lincoln.
