    The Barbican Hotel in Lincoln was originally opened as a gentleman’s club in 1867. During the 1870s the building became the Albion Hotel, and was quite a prestigious place to stay in its time; an important early hotel it still retains original external features.

    During the 1980s the hotel was renamed to the Barbican. In 2006 eight people were rescued from a blaze started in a bedroom on the second floor. The Barbican Hotel closed during the 2000s and despite being purchased by developers in 2008 has stood empty ever since.

    Nicely preserved! Looks like a good explore, particularly like the flower arrangement hanging from the ceiling
