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 which 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.

Looks a lot better inside than i had imagined :)  

Drove past this about a million times but was never sure whether or not it would be worth the effort - how wrong was I!

That's lovely, really like thee trance and the dome shaped roof is beautiful. The outer part reminds me of bellboys. 

Nice (y)

Nobody is going to give you an answer in public.

If only there was someone local to say, Lincoln, who could go check it out.

Oh wait.....
