Explore the Medieval walls of Lincoln Castle

Lincoln, Lincolnshire

With stunning city views and 1,000 years of history to take in, a walk around Lincoln Castle’s medieval walls is an unforgettable experience.

Navigate paths first built by William the Conqueror as you walk along the entire medieval walls of Lincoln Castle - built in 1068 - giving stunning views over rural Lincolnshire or across the city to the beautiful Lincoln Cathedral.

There is a wealth of history to discover inside the English castle too. Living history in the Victorian prison, amongst other heritage attractions, will bring to life the ways the castle has been used over the years – including stories of prisoners that have spent time in its cells.

Also found in the castle, after making your way underground, is one of only four remaining original copies of the 1215 Magna Carta. See the document itself and learn about its history in an immersive cinema experience.
