Tattershall Castle proudly rises from the flat Lincolnshire fens; a survivor of conflict, decay and restoration. Built of red brick in an era of stone, this fortified manor is one of the earliest and finest surviving examples of English medieval brickwork. A past home to Lords, ladies, soldiers and cows, the castle was built by the Treasurer of England, Lord Ralph Cromwell in the 1440s and saved for the nation by Lord Curzon of Kedleston in 1911. Take the winding staircase, wander through vast echoing chambers and walk out onto the battlements revealing the beauty of the Lincolnshire countryside. Eating and Shopping: Guardhouse shop selling hot and cold drinks, wrapped cakes, sandwiches, crisps, ice-cream, gifts and souvenirs. Picnics welcome. Making the most of your day: Free audio guides for children and adults. Events throughout the year, including Easter Egg fun, medieval re-enactments, open-air theatre and Christmas market. Accessibility: Site contains loose gravel paths (difficult for manual wheelchairs) and uneven grassy surfaces. Wheelchair access to the ground floor only. Access to the rest of the castle via a spiral staircase (149 steps) and steps to the basement. Dogs: Welcome on leads in the grounds only.

The castle in Tattershall is a great day out and well worth remembering to take a picnic if the weather looks good. There is parking but can be difficult to spot the entrance. Lovely well kept by the National Trust with lots of information boards....More

The grounds are very small, literally a 30 second walk from the entrance to the castle. The castle is also surrounded by a moat.
