Driving into tattershall you couldn't miss the castle standing prominently by the roadside luckily as the signposts for it were nonexistent until you got to the turn in.. On entering the premises your given a little information at the gate then make your way up to what would have been the old gate house to pay your entry fee of... More

nice grounds, good 'castle' to explore, climb to the top of. Dressing up clothes for children. Nice room where we could eat our picnic out of the rain. Extremely good when they do a medieval day

Oh this is such a lovely place. As a family we visited Tattershall Castle and fell in love with the place. A beautiful and peaceful place. There are free audio guides available which we highly recommend. They are very informative and help tremendously. Now there are no tea rooms but there is a small tea/coffee machine in the ticket office.... More

Also well worth a visit is the adjoining church, very historic with brass... More

On a glorious April day, the view from the top of this National Trust Property is stunning. Boston Stump and Lincoln Cathedral could be made out in the distance today, together with the nearby jet-ski park, RAF Coningsby and the lovely countryside. The audio guides were worth listening to get a bit of background but the place spoke for itself... More

A very imposing building, full of history and with some unusual details if you like castles and architecture. Not a typical castle by any means, as it is brick built, but it is very interesting with well preserved carvings and a wonderful view from the top of the castle! There are some beautiful tapestries in the Great Hall. We had... More

Pleasantly surprised by castle after visiting when passing. Good use of 2 hours, interesting history and amazed at 3 million hand made bricks make up this structure. Not a day out but great to add into your day.

Not a typical NT place, but good nonetheless. Interesting period of history that is often overlooked, so a good place to learn more. It is a short visit, so don't drive a long way just to come here, but with the RAF base around the corner, one can combine the two for a fuller day out. No tea shop here,... More
