Saved for the nation by the last Viceroy of India (Lord Curzon) this is a great place to visit. It's very accessible, right to the roof level, from where there are terrific views - 20 miles across the Lincolnshire countryside. Lots of amazing original stonework remains, particularly the vaulted roofs and fireplaces. Tip: buy the excellent NT book and do... More

Loved seeing this castle and the audio was very informative. It was nice that there were people in the castle dressed up and showing how traditional games and hobbies took place.

A good half hours visit, but better if you're already an NT member, attractive setting. Worth combining with other more impressive local sights.

A must for anyone wanting to experience life in a major castle in the 1500s. The stairs, floors and rooms are all intact and open to the public over many floors with re-enactments at weekends. Great for children and adults alike. A must see.

As NT members we thought we would check out the castle while holidaying in the area. As you expect with NT a good quality experience and although no cafe it does have hot drinks and packaged sandwiches and cakes to enjoy in a nice warm seating area. A bit more local produce would be nice. The castle itself was good... More

Having just become members of the National Trust, we decided to pay this place a visit on our way home from Manchester. It is fairly easy to find but the car park is not particularly large although there was plenty of space when we visited. We decided to have the interactive guide which gives you a full informative history of... More

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.
