Lincoln Castle reopens Medieval Wall Walk

From today, visitors to Lincoln Castle will once again be able to enjoy the Medieval Wall Walk.

“We’re delighted to be moving to our second phase of reopening,” said site manager Laura Ince.

“We’ve had just under 10,000 visitors since opening, with no more than 100 visitors in the grounds at any one time, who have been enjoying our vast green open space, so reopening the wall walk and our café (for takeaway only) is really the next step.

“We’ve put a number of social distancing measures in place for the wall walk – so it will be one way, only allowing a certain number of visitors at any time, and a marked out queuing area. Visitors will also have to enter and exit by the same area, so it can be marshalled.

“We’ve put these measures in place to protect both visitors and staff.”

Visitors must pre-book their tickets online. Annual pass holders don’t need to book, but might need to queue until there is space on the walls.

Wheelchair access to the East section of the wall will remain available but will be limited to two wheelchair users at any one time.

Lincoln is gradually re-opening following he lockdown with preparations taking place to welcome visitors to the High Street later this month.
