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!

interesting historical brick castle, unfurnished, but worth a look if youre in the area, some interesting history about the place. it's not grand and if i were'nt in the NT i would think it a bit too expensive.

The castle is well preserved and provides a window into life in a bygone age. Great views from the roof. Lovely staff in the old guardhouse.

It HAS to be seen, no doubt about it and it is an old building with great importance but.............it's a bit dull. Each level is just one big open room with brick walls and small anterooms coming off of it. From the roof at least you get a view of the old gravel pit and views toward distant hills. It... More

On arriving at Tattershall we were greeted by a friendly member of staff who gave us our audio guides and told us what to do next! We found the audio guides to be very informative and we loved exploring the battlements and rooms with great views over the Lincolnshire countryside! Only downside to the visit was that there was nowhere... More

Great to be able to climb to the battlements (even with arthritic knees) and view the surrounding countryside and RAF runways. Great for children. Gives a good impression of what life would have been like.

We have driven past many times but finally made a proper visit. Historically interesting building with nice grounds. Not a great deal to see on the inside although the audio guide was very informative and well worth using. Great views of the Lincolnshire countryside. Various outbuildings that are home to a bat population.

Passed this castle many times in the past thinkink: ' I must stop one day and look round.' Did so on Bank Holiday Monday, well worth it as was the climb to the top, even with my game knees!
