Heritage Lincolnshire is inviting families to join them in an Easter Egg hunt at Bolingbroke Castle on March 30 between 12noon and 4pm. Visitors will have the opportunity to explore the ruin’s nooks, crannies and hidey-holes to find lost dragon eggs.

Beverley Gormley, Heritage Lincolnshire’s Cultural Events Officer said “Easter is a great time to come and explore this fascinating place!

“Many people don’t realise that we have such a historically significant site in Lincolnshire, so we’re inviting adults and kids to come along and find out more about the castle, take part in a dragon egg hunt and explore the ruin, moat and grounds.

“Don’t forget to bring your swords and shields in case the dragon appears!”

Bolingbroke Castle is cared for by Heritage Lincolnshire on behalf of English Heritage. The castle was built in the early 1200s and was the birthplace of the future King Henry IV in 1367.

At the time it was built, the castle was at the forefront of defensive design and although it is now a ruin, you can still see the remains of the curtain wall and circular towers that would have protected the Lord of the manor and his household.

The Dragon Egg Hunt activity costs 50p. More information is available at, or by calling 01529 461499. No booking is necessary.
