Lincoln Castle Illuminated

Lincoln Castle Illuminated

Lincoln Castle Illuminated is back, and it’s bigger and brighter than ever before. The magical and much-loved Christmas event will run from Friday 8th December until Saturday 23rd December, giving families and friends the perfect and unmissable opportunity to get into the festive spirit.

You will be able enjoy the castle grounds bejewelled with festive lights and illuminated Christmas features, take a trip down Candy Cane Lane, and give your warmest season’s greetings to our resident castle dragons – Lucy and Norman.

The castle has retained its popular Illuminated Wall Walk so visitors can see this historical landmark in a sparkling, festive light and take in the beautiful night-time views across the city and county. Then it’s all aboard our ‘Mini Polar Express’ before enjoying other traditional fairground rides beloved by young and old.

As no Christmas event is complete without festive food, local vendors will be offering sweet treats and winter warmers, including hot chocolate and mulled wine.

Lincoln Castle Illuminated will be the perfect start to your Christmas festivities.
