Things to consider on your visit to Tattershall
- Tattershall is a draughty castle with no heating, so treat the visit like you would an outdoor trip. It is best to wrap up warm, and wear sensible and sturdy footwear.
- Access is difficult for those with a physical disability. The only way to reach the upper floors of the castle is by a spiral staircase with 149 steps.
- As the site is a scheduled ancient monument, our toilets are located a short distance from the castle. There are no toilets inside the castle.
- We don't have a café on site, so bring food with you for a picnic. We have a small selection of crisps, sweet treats and ice-creams to supplement your picnic.
- The site has two water-filled moats with sheer walls, steep banks and uneven slippery surfaces throughout.
Free familiarisation visits for group leaders
If you're planning a group visit you can request our free Travel Trade Pass and you and a friend or colleague will gain free entry to over 300 of our places throughout England, Wales and Northern Ireland for 12 months. There’s nothing quite like seeing or experiencing somewhere for yourself to help you plan a successful visit. To receive your pass, call 0344 800 2329 or email us at NTTravelTrade@capita.co.uk.
Who is eligible for free entry?
Registered tourist board guides (on production of a valid badge), coach drivers and tour leaders escorting groups of 15 or more. National Trust members also receive free entry, so it is at your discretion whether to refund the entrance fee to members if you have included it in your package – this is not refunded by the National Trust.
Members must bring their current membership cards with them to avoid paying the full group rate. If any of your group would like to join the National Trust please direct them to our Membership page or call 0344 800 1895.
Admission is free for National Trust members. For non-members there is group rate discount of 5% off the standard adult price if the group contains 15 people or more.
