‪This is now a ruined and flattened (after the English Civil War) castle but it was the birthplace of Henry Bolingbroke who became Henry IV of England. It is nice to pay a visit but you won't need to spend significant time here. It is free entry.‬

‪A really nice castle ruin. Just as they should be. We visited in the late afternoon with the setting sun giving a great lighting effect to the ruins. Managed by english Heritage and they have done a good job with modest but informative information boards. Well worth seeking out.‬

‪Free to park on road side. Free entry to site.
Historical link to Henry IV.
The information boards are useful to help the imagination as the castle is literally a ruin but worth stopping by for a short visit.

‪It is a good job we have satnavs!
This particular ruined castle is situated in a small village about halfway between Skegness and Lincoln.
I visited early this morning, it is advised that visits are at respectable times as the approach road carves through a housing area.
Parking is in a form of a tiny gravel area large enough for my small car.
The ruins are looked after by English heritage and there are plenty of boards dotted around explaining the history/ plans etc.
Suitable shoes are a must as it is a grassed path which was soaked.....like my feet were wearing trainers!
Overall a nice way to spend 30 minutes and its free too.

‪Nice and quite place in a very small village. Interesting walk along the ruins of the castle built there in 1220. Just ruins but you can see the perimeter, the rests of the towers, the entrance where the bridge was. An historical place to visit.‬

‪We took a picnic blanket as other reviews suggested and just soaked up the atmosphere and used our imagination in these ruins.‬

‪Having recently found out there were the ruins of a former castle here, I was pleased to be able to visit the other day. Although not a lot remains, there is sufficient information to get the impression of how it looked etc. I enjoyed my visit‬

‪Monday 19 October 20, I went with my friend to ‘Bolingbroke Castle’ which is under the care of the English Heritage.

Bolingbroke Castle was one of three castles built by Ranulf de Blundeville, Earl of Chester and Lincoln, in the 1220’s after his return from the Crusades. The other castles being Beeston Castle and Chartley Castle.

After Blundeville’s death, the castle remained in the ownership of the Earls of Lincoln and was later inherited through marriage by John of Gaunt, Duke of Lancaster.

As an extremely powerful member of the royal court, with royal connections, John of Gaunt became the guardian of Richard II when the young king succeeded to the throne at the age of 10 years old. John of Gaunt and his first wife, Blanche, lived at the castle during the 1360s. Their son, Henry of Bolingbroke, was born there in 1367.

Their son Henry had a tempestuous relationship with Richard II and was exiled in 1397. He returned to England after the death of his father in 1399, enraged that the king had seized the estates he had inherited. Richard was in Ireland, attempting to quell a rising, when he heard of Henry’s return.

These events marked the end of Richard II’s reign. Henry of Bolingbroke was encouraged to claim the throne of England from his unpopular rival, and Richard was imprisoned. Soon afterwards, Henry was crowned king as Henry IV.
There is no evidence to suggest that Henry IV ever returned to his birthplace again and lived in the castle.

The main function of Bolingbroke castle during the 15th and 16th centuries was as an administrative centre for the estates of the Duchy of Lancaster.
The names of the towers, i.e. the Auditor’s Tower and Receiver’s Tower, refer to their use during this period. Surveys undertaken at the castle in the 17th century show that only a few of the towers then remained in use and that the enclosing walls were extremely dilapidated.

During the Civil War, the castle became a defensible base for a Royalist garrison and was besieged by Parliamentarian forces in 1643. The Royalists surrendered this castle in the winter of 1643, and the entire castle was destroyed.

My friend and I entered through the gatehouse towers into the open central area of the castle. Bolingbroke Castle is a prime example of 13th-century architectural design and is described as an ‘enclosure’ castle. Such castles are characterised by curtain walls with towers enclosing a courtyard. Within this courtyard there would have been timber-framed structures, including a great hall and service buildings, evidence of which was found in excavations during the 1960s.

The south-west tower, known as the King’s Tower, was rebuilt between 1444 and 1456 on an octagonal plan. By this time, the castle was more than 200 years old, and this remodelling represents an attempt by the owners to express their wealth and importance. From the Auditor’s Tower can be seen the Rout Yard – the field to the south of the castle – which contains several earthworks, including a rectangular enclosure.

My friend and I mooched round this lovely castle for a couple of hours and we took some very nice photographs of the castle and surrounding areas.

If you like castles, this is well worth visiting if you are in the area.‬

‪Bolingbroke castle ruins are the lower outer wall ruins with a dried up moat around the outside. This is a lovely place to pay a visit to if your in the area and to go for walk but you would find it hard to spend more than an hour to hour and a half here.
There are information boards around the grounds which explain which each of the rooms would have been used for and a rough idea of what they would have looked like which is quite interesting.‬
