Scale the heights of the Medieval Wall Walk. The great stone curtain wall is one of the most dramatic features of Lincoln Castle today and a permanent reminder of its role as a mighty medieval stronghold.
Follow in the footsteps of prisoners. Lincoln Castle’s Victorian Prison was designed for the 'separate system', an isolating regime that kept prisoners apart from the corrupting influence of their fellow prisoners. Immerse yourself in the Magna Carta story. See Lincoln’s Magna Carta, Charter of the Forest and a guest document in the magnificent surroundings of their stately vault. Don’t miss the stunning Great Charter Wall and Barons’ Shields, a feast for the eyes.
Their cafe, Langton’s, is situated on the ground floor of the former Georgian gaol and is open to visitors, residents, shoppers and those enjoying quiet time in the grounds of the castle.
There is an extensive event programme which runs all the way through the year, bringing history to life!
