250,000 people have visited the attraction over the past year.

It was crowned the UK's best tourist attraction in November 2015, beating off stiff competition from across the country including the Harry Potter studio tour and the Tower Bridge glass floor attraction in London.

Coffin of possible Saxon King uncovered at Lincoln Castle

Archaeologists who found nine skeletons buried beneath Lincoln Castle say they plan to open up a stone coffin with a skeleton inside it in September.

So far only an endoscopy has been carried out on the coffin where a camera was poked inside. A full skeleton could be seen on the camera, as well as a shiny object.

Archaeologists believe the skeleton could have belonged to someone extremely high up in society like a lawmaker, but have played down speculation that it could have been a Saxon King or Bishop.
