Lincoln Castle is a historic building located in the city of Lincoln, England. It was built in the late 11th century by William the Conqueror and served as a royal palace and later as a prison. The castle is known for its well-preserved walls and towers, which provide a panoramic view of the surrounding area, and its history as a centre of power and justice. The castle also contains the Lincoln Crown Court, which is still in use today, and the Magna Carta Museum, which houses one of only four surviving original copies of the Magna Carta.
