Abstract

Many, if not most, visitor attractions in this country were once something else: prisons, factories, battleships, palaces, courtrooms. These days, they are sustained by paying visitors. Yet it is as if their ‘second life on display’ is not part of their real history (though for Lincoln Castle, this is more accurately a third or fourth life). Virtually all timelines and historical accounts of the Castle ignore this important theme, even though it stretches back for well over a century. This chapter therefore attempts to rescue the neglected story of Lincoln Castle as a visitor attraction.
