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.

Really impressive looking castle set in lovely grounds. Only open Saturday and Sunday this time of year. Owned by National Trust so my advice is to join up and take advantage of seeing this and other fabulous places.

This castle is steeped in history and has much to explore. Be aware that there are many steps to the upper floors and roof but the views are worth it. Nearby church is also worth a visit with a good café with homemade cakes and...More

While visiting the east coast we took a trip to Tattershall Castle, it stands tall surrounded by a moat. A spiral stair takes you to the roof with fantastic views on each compass point with information boards showing features in the distance like Lincoln cathedral....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.
