This June marks an incredible anniversary – 800 years since King John sealed the charter that was to form the basis for modern-day democracy: Magna Carta.

While many of the celebrations will take place in and around Runnymede, where the famous ‘signing’ took place, for many the biggest attraction is seeing one of the four remaining original versions of the charter up close.

The British Library houses two of them, a third can be found in Salisbury, while Lincoln Castle will be displaying its version in its new temperature-controlled vault next to the Charter of the Forest.

Visitors to the latter can take advantage of the ‘Magna-ificent Lincoln’ offer at Washingborough Hall, a luxury 18th-century house located just two miles east of Lincoln.

Washingborough Hall was once home to one of Lincolnshire’s richest families – that of Sir William Amcotts-Ingilby, MP – and later a hospital for airmen during the Second World War. Today it offers elegant accommodation and an AA Rosette restaurant.


The Magna-ificent Lincoln offer includes:

Two-nights’ dinner bed and breakfast
Cream tea for two
Champagne before dinner each evening
One-way private car transfer to Lincoln
Entry to Lincoln Castle and Cathedral
This package costs £445 ($662) for two people for a two-night stay, subject to availability.

BRITAIN readers can redeem this offer for the extended period until 30 April 2016.

Simply quote ‘BRITAIN2016’ when claiming this rate through Washingborough Hall.
