Guided tours


Visitors purchasing a Castle Day Ticket with Grounds Tour 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. 

Pre-booking is advised for ticket holders.

Annual Pass holders do not need to book to attend grounds tour of the site.

Our tours last 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: 11am, and 1pm

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 782019 for information.
