Norwich Castle

Norwich CastleBuilt by the Normans in the 12th century, Norwich Castle is one of the finest Norman secular buildings to be found in Europe. Originally built as a royal palace, the castle is now a museum and art gallery, packed with treasures and collections of national importance. The archaeology gallery has displays about Queen Boudica, with a ride-on re-creation of an Iceni warrior’s chariot. There is an Egyptian collection which is displayed in a replica Egyptian tomb with ancient mummies.

The castle is home to impressive displays of Norwich Silver and has the world’s largest collection of ceramic teapots. Hanging in the galleries there are works by the famous Norwich School of Painters, modern English paintings, Dutch landscapes and English watercolours of the 18th and 19th centuries. Visiting exhibitions can also be seen, including works from the Tate.

Norwich CastleFor spectacular views over Norwich, you can climb up to the battlements, and a tour of the dungeons demonstrates what life was like for prisoners who were incarcerated in years gone by.

The castle has a café that serves a range of teas, coffees, and light lunches, and a gift shop with a good selection of merchandise.
