The Lawn

The Lawn is a museum complex located opposite the recently opened West Gate of Lincoln Castle.

The feature of The Lawn is the Sir Joseph Banks Tropical Conservatory.

Sir Joseph Banks (1743-1820) was a naturalist, explorer, plant collector and unofficial first director of Kew Gardens in London. Banks sailed with James Cook on the Endeavour. He was elected President of the Royal Society and remained President until his death.

Also at The Lawn is the John Dawber Garden.

From The Lawn a panoramic view opens up of Lincoln and the surrounding countryside.
