Three great attractions. One great day out. Medieval Wall Walk. Victorian Prison. Magna Carta. Enjoy spectacular views across Lincolnshire from our completed Medieval Wall Walk. Visit the David P.J. Ross Magna Carta Vault and see one of only four remaining original Magna Carta along side the Charter of the Forest. Immerse yourself in the lives of prisoners and their daily routines in the Victorian Prison and see the unique separate system chapel. 1000 years of history - where it happened.

Loved the castle in Lincoln. The prison was very interesting and we really enjoyed looking around. The walk around the prison walls is well worth the time - some lovely views of the city from high up. Definitely worth a visit if you're in Lincoln.

The castle has amazing views of not only the cathedral but of Lincoln itself. However disappointingly there is limited wheelchair access around the castle wall. There is a lift to take you up, and the wheelchair access goes up to just before the first tower....More
