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 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 heraldic crests of the previous owners of the castle from Eudo, the first to build a settlement here, 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.
Admire our priceless Flemish tapestries
The seventeenth-century tapestries are on the second floor of the Great Tower, they were purchased by Lord Curzon in Munich for £1,160.
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 fly over the castle and listen to the disctinctive sounds of the Merlin engines.
