Especially for half term, the Victorian Prison Yard transforms into our medieval Knight School.

Junior Knights can discover the skills needed to be a medieval Knight.  Take part in sword drill, wear a medieval helmet and carry a shield.  Choose your heraldry and practice your chivalry.

Built by William the Conqueror in 1068, Lincoln Castle has dominated the Lincoln skyline for almost one thousand years.  During your visit you can walk the Medieval Walls for stunning views of Lincoln Cathedral and across the city; an audio tour will guide you through the castle's history.

Inside the Castle walls is the Victorian prison giving an insight into crime and punishment in the Lincoln of the past. Inside the prison you will find the subterranean Magna Carta vault, housing one of only four surviving original copies of Magna Carta, and a small cinema screen to tell you its important story.
