The Lawn, Lincoln

The Lawn, Lincoln, Lincolnshire, England is a notable Greek revival building constructed as a psychiatric hospital which now operates as a catering hall.

The Lawn is situated next to Lincoln Castle in the city's cathedral quarter, in a commanding position on the Lincoln Edge escarpment. It comprises a number of fine buildings set amid a large lawn, a rose garden and a children's play area. The main building is now run as a conference centre, and previously the Lawn complex housed military regimental museums and a museum about the Roman colony Lindum Colonia (from which the modern city takes its name).

The Sir Joseph Banks Conservatory is the main attraction for visitors at present, being a free-to-enter hothouse containing exhibits categorised by Banks on his voyages with Captain James Cook.
