A unique 15th century red-brick castle rising dramatically above the Lincolnshire countryside.

Discover 800 years of the castle's history from palatial dwelling to cattle shed; romantic ruin to restoration.

Explore all six floors of this imposing building from basement to battlements, climb all 149 steps of its spiral staircase and marvel at the views of the beautiful Lincolnshire countryside from the roof. Make sure you view the magnificent fireplaces and follow the stained glass window timeline.

Audio guides are free to take and will transform your visit, painting a picture with words and music, sending you back in time 500 years. They have children's versions as well as adults so the whole family can learn together about this unique building.

After you have climbed to the top why not return to the Guardhouse for a nice cup of tea and a wrapped cake. Relax in the lovely seating area; sit in front of the fire and take a rest from all those steps. Once you've finished your refreshments you can peruse the second-hand bookshop.

They have lots of fantastic events for the whole family across the year ranging from Easter Egg trails and medieval re-enactments to outdoor theatre and the ever popular Christmas Market. Tattershall Castle is open 7 days a week during the main season, from 11am-5pm.
