Visited Tattershall with the family last weekend for their Christmas Market. We loved shopping around for gifts and got to see the castle too. The staff and volunteers were very helpful and friendly and we ended up not just shopping with the many stallholders but buying lots of NT goodies in their lovely shop in the guardhouse too. Always a... More

Originally Built between 1440 and 1450 this brick built castle was in a total state of ruin by the 1900's in 1910 it was sold and the huge medieval fireplaces that were still intact were torn out by the new American owner and packaged up for shipping to the States. Lord Curzon of Kedleston stepped in at the eleventh hour... More

Small by comparison with many NT places but it has an interesting history and is a well maintained property with gardens. Audio guides are available and a big assistance to learning about the castle. There is a small shop which sells sandwiches and drinks.

National Trust come up trumps again, we called in on our way back from Lincoln and enjoyed a whistle-stop visit for an hour. We met the nutty professor in the cellar and he showed us some experiments and his Halloween collection of beasts and creepy crawlies. Great views from the room over Conningsby etc, shame we couldn't have stopped longer.

We were driving back home to Norfolk after holidaying in Lincolnshire. Stopped off at Tattershall Castle and glad we did. Staff very pleasant. Children loved the Hallowe'en Trail, looking for the body parts. Good value for money at £16 for 4 of us. Beautiful views from the top of the Lincolnshire countryside. Highly recommend.

We all enjoyed our visit to Tattershall but you do need the free audio commentary to make the best of it. Unusually for NT property there is no furniture in the place. Adding some would put a bit more character to the place and context but then they would need more staff so there is a balance. The church nearby... More

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
