National Trust run castle. Very informative. Great views from the top. Each floor has a different theme. Last time we visited, there was an exhibition on the ground floor.

We stayed in Tattershall for the weekend and wanted something to do. When we saw the Castle, we thought it was beautiful but didnt look much - how wrong! Once you step into the grounds, you see it at its beauty! Huge and even has a moat. There was an option to have a free guide which we accepted. This... More

Have been here many times and will still go again. The views from the roof are amazing. It's well worth the climb to the roof as I'm sure on a clear day I have seen Lincoln Cathedral. There are special days put on by the National Trust to encourage children.

I have visited this castle with a few friends and also with a class of children. Both visits were rewarding and I would return again for future visits. The setting of the castle is beautiful and the view from the top is stunning. The close proximity of the church added another dimension and is also well worth visiting.

Located in Lincolnshire. This red brick tower has a moat surrounding it and is very picturesque. Interesting for many reasons, but a little lacking in what I am interested in. But very good for a medieval tower stronghold. Sadly like all National trust properties it is not cheap to get in. visited 2010

This is an amazing tower in the middle of the fens, a fine example of an early brick-built castle originally owned by Ralph Cromwell and almost lost but for the intervention of the National Trust. Spiral staircases lead to several different levels and finally the roof, from which you can see for miles across the surrounding countryside.This National Trust property... More

We had a lovely family visit. I don't know cost because we are members of "National Heritage". They hold events here through the year, I love the Christmas and Halloween events best. Check website. You can hire a headphone set that gives you the history as you walk around. You have a choice at which level of information you want... More
