Client Testimonials

"A splendid evening in an excellent venue, showcasing both the castle and Lincoln's rich history. The tour and hospitality were enjoyed by all our guests." Edward Conway, Joint Managing Partner, Chattertons Solicitors 

"Over the last 12 years I’ve hosted more than 150 roadshows, and our evening in Lincoln Castle is certainly up there in the Top 5, and saying that you’re up against competition from the likes of Tower Bridge London, Royal Yacht Britannia and Royal Horseguards’ Hotel." Andrew Farr, PR Manager, Classic Collection

"The 2015 Magna Carta celebrations have been outstanding in terms of quality and diversity of the events delivered. It has been a privilege to be able to attend events which have showcased Lincoln as an amazing historic and cultural city. We were fortunate to be able to invite some of our customers to a conference dinner hosted in the Prison Building and they were understandably blown away by the historic surroundings, the Tour Guide stories and the Magna Carta itself." Steve Middlebrough, Senior Manager at Siemens plc
