Lincoln Castle Explorers: Dog Friendly
An exclusive chance for children and adults on the autistic spectrum to visit Lincoln Castle with their Therapy Dog

Date: Saturday 4th January
Time: 9.00am - 10.00am

The autism friendly event was fantastic and took a lot of worry and stress away. We are excited to go back on another autism friendly event

Tailored environment for children and adults on the autistic spectrum to visit Lincoln Castle with their Therapy or Family Dog. Lincoln Castle is a Dog Friendly day from 10am - 4pm.

Autism assistance dogs are trained to provide safety and companionship, helping to bring independence and a more socially inclusive life to both the child and their family. They have been shown to:

  • Reduce stress for family members
  • Promote positive changes in behaviour
  • Provide comfort for children with autism when upset
  • Reduce behavioural outbursts

The team at Lincoln Castle have undergone Autism Awareness training and worked alongside Lincoln's Parent Support Group PAACT who is affiliated to the Lincolnshire Autistic Society.
The Victorian Prison and Magna Carta experience will be adapted to create a more suitable environment for visitors with autism. Our Visit England Gold Accolade winning Front of House team will also be at hand to assist you throughout your visit.
If you require a moment away or a safe space, our sensory space will be available equipped with sensory toys.

The Langton's Café team will be serving food and drink from 9am - 10am.

Should you require any more information, please read our accessibility statement.
A brand new Easy Read Guide, which is specifically designed for young children and adults with Autism to take on their way around the Castle, can be downloaded as well as a Lincoln Castle Map to navigate yourself around the site. Ear defenders are available in the Lincoln Castle Shop.
