Lincoln Castle



Built by William the Conqueror in 1068 on a site occupied since Roman times, Lincoln Castle has dominated the Lincoln skyline for almost one thousand years.  Inside the Castle walls is also a Victorian prison and one of only four surviving copies of Magna Carta.

The Castle grounds will be filled with a market village, a stage hosting lots of live entertainment and a space dedicated to meeting the bands and performers at the Festival, as well as a chance to buy their merchandise.

OPEN TO WRISTBAND HOLDERS – please note in 2019 Asylum wristband holders can access the Castle grounds, Steampunk market, Prison, Wall Walk and a brand new fashion exhibition in the Prison.
