Tattershall Castle

Explore all six floors of Tattershall Castle from underground in the basement to the battlements at the very top. Built by Ralph, Lord Cromwell (Treasurer of England) in the 1440’s, the castle was saved from demolition by Lord Curzon of Kedleston in 1911.

It is one of the earliest and the finest surviving examples of English medieval brickwork. Take the winding staircase, wander through vast echoing chambers and walk out onto the battlements revealing the beauty of the Lincolnshire countryside. Look out for the exciting programme of seasonal events and re-enactments that brings the castle to life.

Perfect for budding knights and princesses to discover, explore the Great Tower with children's trail sheets available. Search all the rooms (perfect for hide and seek), play some medieval games and race to the top. Remember to count all the steps! Why not try building yourself a castle? Play in the sandpit and make a sandcastle next to the real thing or become a master builder with the colourful softplay shapes.

In the Guardhouse gift shop you’ll find loads of ideas for presents and souvenirs and a second-hand bookshop to peruse. You can also partake in some light refreshments.
