Discover a world of rich history during your visit to Lincoln Castle, nestling in the heart of historic Lincoln.
The castle hosts an exciting events programme and offers free guided tours. These provide a fascinating insight into the history of Lincoln and its castle.
The castle is home to the Lincoln Magna Carta, dating back to 1215, as well as the Charter of the Forest. Lincoln Castle is the only place where you can see the two documents together in the world!
Standing almost in the shadow of Lincoln cathedral, with sweeping views over the ancient city and the countryside beyond, the medieval bishops' palace was once among the most important buildings in the country. The administrative centre of the largest diocese in medieval England, stretching from the Humber to the Thames, its architecture reflected enormous power and wealth.
Explore the site as part of a day out in Lincoln with our audio tour to see the undercrofted East Hall; and the chapel range and entrance tower built by Bishop William Alnwick, who modernised the palace in the 1430s.
Relax and enjoy the unique contemporary Heritage Garden, a haven of peace and tranquillity.
