Very good tour but it would be hard to get the information without the headset as there are few information boards so it's important to get the audio tour guide. The views from the top of the castle are amazing! Very lovely place.

Tattershall Castle is well worth a visit if you are interested in History. Bring a picnic. Spend time looking up at this fine monument, or climb the 150 stairs to the roof and look down from 112ft. Enjoy the wonderful view, and may be you will be lucky enough to see the Battle of Briton flight which has its base... More

Very good. Was so high up but worth the view when you got up there looking out over Tattershall Lakes and RAF Coningsby

Lovely castle ruin. Very tall, square building, with about four floors to visit including the roof top.

We all found this very interesting, especially listening to the audio guide which was unusually very good. In the past I have listened to so many boring audio guides that I gave up taking them. This however was interesting without being dull. The Castle and grounds are well maintained and the view from the top of the castle wide spreading... More

Loved the castle, audio tape was brilliant (first time I've ever used one and now realise what I've been missing when I've not used one of these), they even had audio version for children. Staff were lovely and gave my children a trail to do around the castle and asked them questions when they came out. Took us about an... More

The castle has stunning views from the top over Lincolnshire. It's pretty empty inside apart from a couple of tapestries, however you are given a audio guide which tells about the history of the castle. As a member of the National Trust it was a great place to have a quick wander around (easily within 45 minutes), but if you... More

Why five stars and I didn't view inside the castle? Well, being disabled, I couldn't. The lady did a nice 'customer service' thing which was really appreciated. As we got there quite late in the afternoon with only an hour left before closing, She let us through to enjoy the sunshine and the ice cream we had bought. The view... More

Really enjoyed the visit. Hand held guide is really good but beware of the steps, there are 149 circular. Very interesting and brilliant views from the top.

Fabulously landscaped, beautiful, and surrounded by Peacocks. This is a very unique castle in the heart of Lincolnshire. This place will take your breath away. Visit also the church and find Tom Thumbs final resting place! Again, wear comy shoes!
