Joseph Banks was born in 1742 and spent the best part of his youth in the shadow of Lincoln Cathedral. He could often be found exploring or playing in the fields around the city and, seeing its mighty towers rising over the skyline, would always know how to find his way home.
Twenty one years later, Banks would be returning home again. However, this time it would be from the other side of the planet. A famed explorer, botanist, and scientist - Sir Joseph Banks' impact on the political and scientific landscape of his time was enormous. Joining Captain Cook on his famous voyages of discovery, Banks would discover countless specimens of flora and fauna never-before-seen in the northern hemisphere.
In the spirit of Banks, explore Lincoln Cathedral and the wonders of the world encapsulated within its walls.
