The castle has over 900 years of history during which it has operated as a castle, a prison and a court. During Norman times, Lincoln was the third most important city in England and was therefore the location for one of the first castles to be built by William the Conqueror. Several battles involved the castle during the reign of King Stephen and King but many of the original features have survived for visitors to see today. Lincoln castle is also one of only two castles in the country to have two mottes. One of the main attractions of the castle is its possession of a copy of the original Magna Carta of which there are only 4 left in existence.
