Dating back to the 11th century, Lincoln Castle today offers a unique spot for an English picnic.
Surrounded by medieval walls, the grounds of Lincoln Castle offer a picturesque, historic and beautiful location for a relaxing picnic.
All the bits you need for a Lincolnshire lunch can be bought nearby in Lincoln’s historic Bailgate area – here you’ll find bakeries, butchers, and a monthly Farmers’ Market.
The grounds are free to explore on non-event days, so you can take your lunch and enjoy the views for a budget afternoon activity.
Be sure to explore the rest of the castle; there are spectacular views from the Wall Walk, fascinating history in the Victorian prison, and an original copy of the 1215 Magna Carta on display to examine for yourself.
