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 views from the castle are absolutely brilliant. The guide we had was really pleasant and so informative about the history of the castle. We also had the added bonus of seeing an old Lancaster flying when we were at the top of the castle....More

Free parking- short walk through a pretty church yard to the visitor centre/ ticket office/ cafe/ book shop. Reasonable priced at about £7 with free audio guide. A fully renovated castle and a good way to spend a couple of hours.

During a recent trip to Lincolnshire, I was pleased to be able to visit this 15th century castle in the village of Tattershall. Well maintained by the National trust, it is beautifully restored, and still surrounded by the double moat. The interiors are left empty,...More

Set in reasonably small grounds should not put you off this lovely castle. It's well worth a climb to the top for spectacular views. Especially worth it if you want to watch the RAF planes taking off

Pleasant castle with great views from the top across the surrounding area and over to the RAF base. Worth a visit for an hour or two!

Friendly staff and wonderful scenery, highly recommend the audio guide. Go right to the top, I am petrified of heights but still felt secure and the views are breath taking.

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