HM Prison Lincoln is a male-only prison located in Greetwell Road, Lincoln, Lincolnshire, England.


HMP Lincoln opened as a local Prison in 1872 holding remand and convicted prisoners. The original 1869-1872 structures designed by Frederick Peck are now listed buildings and are notable examples of High Victorian gothic design. The prison accommodation has been altered and extended at various times in the twentieth century.

The Establishment is beginning to take on the role of a community prison retaining a higher proportion of convicted prisoners. It is currently undergoing a major refurbishment project.





The regime at Lincoln includes production workshops, laundry, education, and vocational training courses. Offending behaviour courses include PASRO. Special features such as Listeners Scheme and charity workshops are available. There are also community links, for instance, groups that visit the prison gymnasium.


HMP Lincoln has type 3 healthcare centre.
