Spent a few hours here, well worth a look. Get an audio guide from shop then walk round. It's great, it dosent rush you around and explains everything. My wife says she could live in here. The grounds are neatly kept. There's plenty to see. If you go to the very top you can see Lincoln cathedral which is about... More

This is a great place to visit with children/family, take a picnic. Weather does need to be good. Great views all around from the top of the Castle, fantastic for taking pictures.

We didn't like the climb to the top - but when we got there the view was fantastic. We could see the Boston "Stump" in the distance. Even better we could watch the "Typhoon" aircraft from nearby RAF Coningsby. The interior of the castle was well presented but somewhat sparten.

We arrived before the castle opened and had a look around the church and it's grounds , which was beautiful in itself. The castle was amazing, with it's moats and little rooms and history. The view from the top of the castle is very nice and a real learning experience for children. There is a little room upstairs in the... More

We visited here when staying in Lincoln which is about 30 mins drive away. Not sure what the admission price is as we are members. The car park is about 200yds from the site, and you walk past the old alms houses and church, but if you need to drop off someone who has walking difficulties as I did, stop... More

Short and sweet? Couldn't fault it. Had the obligatory 'coffee shop' although quite basic but tables and chairs outside and deck chairs with which to enjoy a refreshing drink. The Castle itself was very interesting and the audio guides added very much to the experience. Nice steady climb to the top, stopping on each floor breaks the climb nicely. Well... More

Another worthwhile National Trust property to visit. You can tour practically every part of this marvellous castle from top to bottom. You visit all floors on the way up the spiral staircase (light and wide with handrail so no problem to climb) and the climb is worth the effort because the views from the top are amazing. Information boards help... More

Tattershall Castle is set in a beautiful location and on a nice day you can sit in deck chairs and gaze at this wonderful building. There are a lot of spiral steps but it's worth the climb, the view is wonderful! The history is really interesting and you get a real glimpse at life back then.

A bit of a disappointment. From the Photographs I thought we were in for an interesting visit, but alas Tattershall did not live up to its billing. All floors had very little to see, and even with the aid of an audio guide trying to install some interest, it was very much a case of once you have seen one... More
