Saturday 30 September

Join us for our Early Morning Explorers Sessions, an exclusive hour before opening where young children with autism and their families can enjoy the Castle in a specially tailored environment.  

The team at Lincoln Castle have undergone Autism Awareness training and worked alongside Lincoln's Parent Support Group PAACT who is affiliated to the Lincolnshire Autistic Society.

The Victorian Prison and Magna Carta experience will be adapted to create a more suitable environment for visitors with autism. Our Visit England Gold Accolade winning Front of House team will also be at hand to assist you throughout your visit.

If you require a moment away or a safe space, our education spaces will be available equipped with sensory toys.

The Langton's Café team will be serving food and drink from 9am.

Should you require any more information, please read our accessibility statement.  A brand new Easy Read Guide, which is specifically designed for young children and adults with Autism to take on their way around the Castle, can be downloaded and you can find out how to reserve your own temporary ear defenders whilst visiting us.

Please note that these changes to the Castle and its attractions will take place between 9.00am and 10.00am. From 10am the Castle's audio and visual interpretation will restart. You are more than welcome to stay beyond 10am. 

Our Early Morning Explorers Sessions will take place on the following dates: 

30th of September 

16th of December
