Our Guide took us on a tour of Lincoln Castle
Along the way,we explored towers and dungeons and discovered a violent past of battles, sieges and public hangings. We followed in the footsteps of kings, soldiers and prisoners who walked these same walls hundreds of years ago. From King Henry VIII, who visited with Catherine Howard in 1541, to Henry Carey, convicted of murder and sentenced to death by hanging in 1859, the walls are steeped in stories.
We saw the Lucy Tower, dating back to medieval times, but later a burial ground for unfortunate prisoners hanged at the castle.
The great stone curtain wall is one of the most dramatic features of Lincoln Castle today and a permanent reminder of its role as a mighty medieval stronghold.
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.
Later, with included ticket, we were able to see around Lincoln Cathedral and spend free time in the City .
