In pictures: Lincoln Castle’s Victorian Extravaganza

Lincoln Castle was transported back to the 1800s this weekend as Victorian performers took over the grounds and prison.

Despite some heavy downpours, Her Majesty Queen Victoria graced the ground of the castle, alongside a travelling Victorian showman, museum of curiosities and other entertainers.
