Tattershall Castle is well worth a visit while in Lincoln. You can walk the entire length of the walls since they were refurbished, giving an excellent view all around the area. The Victorian prison is a well-preserved feature, and the Courthouse is an impressive building

Went with parents for a few hours. Was an interesting visit. Good audio guide. Pleasant staff. Well worth a trip for an afternoon out. Be mindful there are over 140 steps to the roof!

Not our intended destination, this was a last minute change of plan. Not knowing quite what to expect as we didn't have a leaflet, we were in for a very pleasant surprise. Greeted in the ticket office by Beverly, she really was the most friendly welcome we've had at an NT venue, she told us about the castle, gave us... More

I am happy to be approached to speak about joining the NT, but felt that I was ambushed as soon as I walked through the entrance. So much so I turned around and left. Shame as the castle looks spectacular

Great couple of hours, food if you want it or area to eat if you take your own. Great history and really nice place not far from Lincoln.

We went to Tattershall castle on Saturday 02/05/15.It is about 20 miles from Lincoln and 25 miles from Skegness. There is plenty of car parking and there is a seperate small parking area for disabled visitors. The entrance fee on the day was £6.50 for adults and £3.80 for a child, you pay in the visitor's shop which is quite... More

I came here as a child and over 40 years later it still held my attention. Right from the entrance and the brilliant commentaries, this was a magical visit. Climbing floor to floor and delving into the history of the castle, was a truly memorable experience. I am pleased I came back and it is a lovely castle to visit

This mediaeval Keep stands proud above the Lincolnshire country side. It is a National Trust (charity) and is free to enter only if your a Trust member otherwise quite rightly there is a fee as opposed to what someone recently posted. The audio guide is free and is a must in my book. 149 steps to the top for great... More

We are members of the National Trust so didn't pay an entrance fee. The tower kept us amused for an hour and we would recommend it.
