Lincoln Castle Victorian Weekend

Lincoln Castle grounds hosted a special insight into the lives of Victorians in Lincoln over the bank Holiday weekend.

Set at the end of Victoria’s Reign, the theme was based around the third Regiment returning from service in India and a detachment has arrived at Lincoln Castle.

There was a static military camp for soldiers and their wives, plus a special appearance from Queen Victoria on Monday.

Events throughout the weekend included regiment parades, Suffragettes meetings and protest, cookery displays, a lecture regarding the Boer War, and finally a late afternoon parade and inspection by Queen Victoria.
