Grimsthorpe Castle, Park & Gardens
The Estate Office
Built for a visit by Henry VIII in 1541, the imposing Castle sits amongst rolling Lincolnshire countryside surrounded by formal gardens, extensive woodland and a 50-acre lake.
Descendants of the deer that King Henry hunted now roam the parkland, grazing under the ancient oaks. There is the chance to soak up the atmosphere and ‘Spirit of Place’ in a Castle that has been home to the same family since 1516.It is filled with fine furniture, paintings and tapestries.
Visitors can enjoy refreshments in the tea room. Pre-booked groups are welcome with the option of taking a candlelight supper tour of the Castle.
