Immerse yourself in a medieval world and brave the battlements. There's plenty for you to discover.
Explore the red brick tower
This magnificent 15th century Great Tower is one of the first of its kind in England.
Started in 1434, the tower has all the features you'd expect to see in a typical castle, but with ornate windows, looming fireplaces and vast chambers it was clearly built for luxury and comfort.
Spot Lord Cromwell's symbol
Ralph Cromwell was the Lord treasurer to King Henry VI for 10 years.
Cromwell didn't want anybody to forget his privileged position so he plastered the picture of his purse all over our beautifully decorated fireplaces.
Follow the window timeline
After 200 years of neglect, Lord Curzon (of Kedleston Hall) replaced the missing windows with colourful stained glass.
Follow the timline of heraldic crests symbolising the previous owners of the castle all the way from Eudo, the first to build a settlement here, up to Lord Curzon himself.
Patrol the battlements
The castle was built in the flat Lincolnshire Fens. Walk along the battlements and see for nearly 20 miles.
Which local landmarks will you spot on the horizon? It's well worth the climb up the Great Tower.
Admire our priceless Flemish tapestries
These seventeenth-century tapestries are hung safely on the second floor of the Great Tower. They were purchased by Lord Curzon in Munich (Germany) for £1,160. A vast sum back then!
Watch the Second World War planes flying overhead
RAF Coningsby is situated only a mile away - watch historic planes from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight zoom over the castle, and listen to the distinctive sounds of the Merlin engines as they rumble overhead.
