Poppies: Wave At Lincoln Castle
From 28th May – 4th Sept 2016
If, like me you didn’t get to see the sweeping wave of red poppy heads at The Tower Of London, this is a must see. Thousands of ceramic poppies, seen previously in a famous Tower of London installation, will be assembled to form a cascading arch over the walls at Lincoln Castle as part of the UK-wide tour.
The castle grounds are open each day from 10am to 5.30pm (main castle attractions close at 5pm).
Although entry to the castle grounds to view the sculpture is free, the usual admissions charges will apply for the other castle attractions.
Claythorpe Watermill and Wildfowl Gardens
Tranquil and beautiful, the former watermill is a little gem at the heart of 2.5 acres of loveliness, nestling between Alford and Louth. Sit by the river, meet the birds and animals, soak up some history, have a fabulous lunch, or let the kids off the leash in our woodland play area. There’s a little something for everyone… and something for every little one.
Adult £5.45 Child (age 3-15) £3.50 Seniors £4.95 Two adults, two children £16 (Admission allows you to return as often as you like for 12 months). Sorry, no dogs are allowed. Visit www.claythorpewatermill.com for more information.
Whatever you do this weekend, “have a good one”! X
