Bolingbroke Castle is a prime example of 13th century castle design complete with a large gatehouse, round towers and a moat. Today the castle is a ruin with only the ground floors of the towers remaining and the lower parts of the walls.
The castle is situated in the village of Old Bolingbroke, signposted off the Coningsby to Spilsby A155 road between East Kirkby and West Keal and the B1195 road between Horncastle and Spilsby.
