A "sarcastic travel guide to Lincoln" says the city has high-class establishments "like Greggs, Starbucks or even Primark" and Lincoln Cathedral "could fall apart at any moment".

The video, by Mark Christensen, says the High Street is where "you will find Lincoln's highest class of citizens, shopping at its highest class of establishments - like Greggs, or Starbucks, or even Primark."

Set against a soundtrack which includes Jerusalem, the video's author also says, flippantly, that "you'll find the Jews House, which is a restaurant and not racist at all."

What do you think of the video? Let us know in the comments box below.

    I must admit I had to laugh in quite a few parts (which is what I need in a morning). I've always enjoyed things like this as they can make life fun. It did though remind me in some parts of 'Balham - Gateway to the South' by Peter Sellers (which can be found on youtube). I still think the best one on the 10" Peter Sellers LP is 'Pat O'Shaughnessy & his men of shamrock' (also on youtube).

    That is brilliant, made me smile all the way through. Let us face it there is a lot of truth in there as well. Take the Primark bit, well if you have ever been to one in another city you may wonder why it is only the Lincoln one that looks like an exploded jumble sale most of the time, and lets face it when is Greggs ever quiet. As for the Jews house I take it you all know of it's history. The graves part, well for sure most people even in Lincoln would have the respect not to walk on them, surely. Also who can deny the cathedral excellent and majestic as it is has not had a few building problems over the years. Well done Mark, great fun and informative at the same time.

    Don't give up your day job Mark. Not sure whether it's an attempt at humour or intelligent comment. Doesn't achieve either I'm afraid. Dreadful - and that's not out of any sense of local pride. I could quite happily cope with someone taking a funny side swipe at Lincoln but this is just pure drivel. p.s. what on earth is it are you seeing in the words Jew's House that leads you to your conclusion that it is racist???... perhaps you should do your next one on Blackpool.
