It's a gorgeous place , very well looked after with friendly staff. A little bit expensive for what there was to see but you do get in free if you are a member of the national trust. The audio guide was a good touch , very informative .i would have liked to see more security on the main entrance though... More

Well worth a visit (especially if you are NT members!), and much better than we expected from the brochure picked up locally. Very interesting castle and grounds, and greatly enhanced by the information handsets available. The 149 steps to the top are not too daunting are even for someone with hip and knee replacements, and the views from the top... More

The castle is very attractive, but unfortunately not really furnished, they have special 'days' when people dress up and do jousting and other events

It was raining. Not too heavy but enough for some discomfort. Tattershall Castle and grounds are an open area as there is a moat around the actual structure but the castle itself provided some shelter. It was not overly onerous to climb the steps to each level and there was something to see when each level was reached. The information... More

Tattershall Castle is owned by National Trust, and worth a visit. When you drive up to the entrance, the car park is down a little lane on the left. Nice free car park with trees to park under when the sun is shining. You can either go via the church (which is worth a visit) or straight to the castle,... More

great venue for a couple of hours visit, many steps to top of castle so if you have walking problems dont go, there was a wedding going on at the castle when we visited so some rooms were closed and plenty of wedding guests about.

Was amazed with this castle as I though it was like a Tardis as from the outside it does not look that big but once you are inside it is really impressive, there are a number of steps to climb but it is well worth it to see all the different levels / rooms and the views from the top... More

A national trust building.There are lots of information boards and a short film to explain the castle's history as you go around. Spend 1 -3 hours here.

Not expecting much. Stopped after visiting the nearby Battle of Britain Memorial Flight home. Late medieval "show castle" restored in the early 1900's. Good audio guide. Cute church adjacent.

I don't normally enjoy castles as I don't like heights but the audio guide given FOC made the experience so interesting that I found I had ventured right up onto the roof.
