Visited earlier this week with hubby and two sons aged 7 & 3 yrs. Really friendly chap explained all we needed to know when we paid the very reasonable £16 family ticket ( cheap for National Trust!!). Although you're warned there are over 100 steps they cover all floors and are "split" at each floor so its not a mammoth... More

We travelled about 40 minutes from Cleethorpes to get there, passing by RAF Coningsby on the way. The car park was small, but near by. A short walk through the church grounds and you're in. The castle itself isn't massive, but in good condition. The roof top views were brilliant, especially looking out over the RAF base. A kids trail... More

An amazing light show last night depicting the life history of the castle - to celebrate 100 years of the castle being open to the public. Talk of it being an annual event so well worth watching out for if it is repeated. Normal fees apply during the day but the evening show with music from Alford Silver Band was... More

I last went here as a kid and coming back again years later not much has changed other than there is now an audio tour and the peacocks have gone. A great castle that everyone will love, quite compact but definitely worth a visit, bring a picnic as they have a picnic area and some picnic benches. Some great views... More

Forget about Hampton Court, this is a fine early example of a brick construction that you can really enjoy. The kids can clamber about and you can enjoy wonderful views from the top. Go also into Tattershall church for wonderful cakes and produce.

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit here. I did not know anything at all about this splendid castle, but the easy to use audio guide made everything clear. The National Trust have done a great job in helping to preserve a building that is part of our national heritage. (I was more than pleased to pay a little more for admission by... More

As National Trust members we were looking for a family attraction that could be covered in a morning or an afternoon. Tattershall Castle fitted the bill. Our 5yr old especially loved the children's version of the audio guide, listening intently and following the guide as we walked around. The spiral steps to the roof however would be unsuitable for the... More

Our membership is coming to an end, and as we were out that way, we went to visit. It was fabulous! Not only visually stunning but also the audio guides completely bought the castle to life and gave great insight and history to the landmark. As ever, good signage and helpful, efficient staff. Also, at the top, you get a... More

We arrived on a day when they were having a medieval reenactment. Although it warned you there were 149 steps to the top of the castle there were only 30 between each floor and the stairs were quite wide with a handrail so quite easy and so it was quite manageable. The view from the top was beautiful.
