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.

What a wonderful place.Today we were lucky as there was medieval crafts etc all dressed in full costume.The castle is well kept.Brilliant views from the top after 149 steps on the spiral stairs but well worth it

You can't miss this landmark National Trust castle - it towers over the landscape near Tattershall village near Grantham. It's different because it's brick-built, apparently a rarity in the 16th C.The rooms are mostly bare of furnishings so NT provide an interesting and comprehensive audio guide of the castle's history. The estate is not large so it's not a long-stay... More

The upper floors are accessible by a wide spiral staircase which is quite easy as you visit one floor at at time. This is much wider than the average spiral staircase in most castles. There is not much to see... More

After a long climb up the stone spiral staircase the view from the top was breath taking not much in the rooms but still an interesting place
