Visitor Update

*Due to the current circumstances, we have postponed our guided tour offer to 17th May 2021. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.*

Visitors purchasing a Castle Day Ticket or an Annual Pass holder are entitled to a free guided tour of the bailey of the castle, led by a specialist guide from the Friends of Lincoln Castle.

Lasting between forty five minutes and an hour, the tour explores the area of the bailey within the castle walls, and is ideal both for those who seek an introduction to this historic site, as well as for anyone who requires a deeper understanding of the colourful history of the castle.

As you explore the grounds your guide will tell of the people who once populated the castle and of the key battles that were fought about its walls in medieval times.

Our guides have all made a detailed study of the history of the castle, and should you have any further questions they will be only too pleased to discuss these with you either before or after your tour.

Tour times change daily. For details of tour times, please see the signage located in our grounds.

Each tour will be restricted to six ticket holders. Due to the continuing situation with Covid 19, 'Social Distancing' will be maintained throughout each tour.

Specialist tours on subjects including Magna Carta and Lady Nicola de la Haye can be booked by special arrangement. Please contact our Visitor Experience Team on 01522 554559 for information.
