Lincoln Castle is situated at the top of Steep Hill in the Historic centre of Lincoln. Overlooking the city, the Norman castle is open for visitors to enjoy its history.
Built in 1068 by William the Conqueror, Lincoln castle offers amazing views of the city, cathedral and the surrounding countryside. For 900 years it was used as a court and prison with parts of the prison also open as a museum, including the 19th century chapel.
The Castle is open throughout the year closing only for Christmas and New Year so come rain or shine, visitors can enjoy its amazing original features and intriguing history. Educational yet enjoyable, Lincoln Castle provides a great day out for everyone.

Great if you like old walls. To be honest you get a nicer view walking around the outside, there is hardly anything to look around inside, there is a little tower you can go up to see the cathedral, but other than that, its a bit empty. The gift shop has many things that kids would like... but its ridiculously expensive, so best to just send an adult in to buy the overpriced tickets!
