Get in the festive spirit with autism friendly sessions at Lincoln Castle

Drop in on Father Christmas’ preparations

Join Lincoln Castle for its very festive Early Morning Explorers session for families with young children with Autism.

The castle will once again, on Saturday 16th December, be opening its doors an hour earlier from 9am so that young children with autism and their families can enjoy the Castle in a specially tailored environment.

On this very magical session, visitors can drop in on Father Christmas’ preparations in the Victorian Bath House until 9.45am where they can share Christmas wishes, have a photo opportunity and receive a Victorian themed gift with the man himself.

Education spaces in the castle will again be equipped with sensory toys for those who need some time away or a safe space.

Within the Victorian Prison you can also find Christmas themed crafts with one of Father Christmas’ elves and Langton’s Café will open early too, serving food and drink from 9am.
