AROUND AND ABOUT
Built by William the Conqueror in 1068 on a site occupied since Roman times, Lincoln Castle has dominated the Lincoln skyline for almost one thousand years. Inside the Castle walls is also a Victorian prison giving an insight into crime and punishment in the Lincoln of the past.
Visitors can walk the full circumference of the wall . An impressive third of a mile long, the Medieval Wall Walk is a journey through the history of Lincoln and a vantage point for spectacular views across this beautiful city and surrounding countryside. There is no finer view of Lincoln Cathedral than that from the castle's east wall battlements, which look onto the Cathedral’s majestic West Front and soaring spires.
One of Europe’s finest Gothic buildings, once the tallest in the world, with stunning views from the roof and tower and intricate design inside.
Movies The Da Vinci Code and The Young Victoria have been filmed there, since 2005.
