Lincoln Cathedral is a top venue in the country and close behind is the remarkable castle at Lincoln which is soon destined to enhance its position as a world-class visitor attraction. It has undergone many, many changes over the centuries and is currently going through a major restoration ready for the 800th anniversary of the Magna Carta. This castle was the only place in the world where an original Magna Carta and the Charter of the Forest could be seen together. They’ll be back after a major refurbishment. There isn’t much to see at the moment (which must be a disappointment for far-travelled tourists) but for my wife and I, who are regular visitors to Lincoln, are monitoring the £22 million transformation with great interest. The photos below are from this visit and the last time when the excavations were in progress. Don’t feel too thwarted for the moment. This attraction will be back bigger and better. Track the developments on the excellent Lincoln Castle website [via the county council site] to be ready for the major reopening. At the moment one can still wander the grounds, go up onto some of the castle walls, admire the buildings and make use of the excellent shop with the very friendly staff. Currently, some reviewers may only give ‘average’ for this attraction but my wife and I know what there was to see and what there will be to see, so it can't be other than ‘excellent’.
