A thoroughly enjoyable experience ....very up to date interactive features mixed with the old exhibits which I remember from previous visits years ago during my school days. Good value for money. Nice restaurant for refreshments.

Norwich Castle is a great day out. The kids loved it and there is a lot for them to do and see. We have a museum card and you can go as many times as you like. A great place to see lots of historical facts and have fun at the same time. Go enjoy.

Worth a visit with some very good collections of both art and artefacts. Only £1 for the last hour so an easy end of the day.

Certainly worth a visit if you're looking for something to do in Norwich other than shopping. Really well laid out and varied exhibits, ranging from Prisoners and treatment of prisoners at the Castle, to stuffed animals and birds of all types, pottery and so on. well worth the entrance fee.

We've been to two exhibitions in the past few months and they have been excellent in presentation and information. Really pleased that we took out a years membership!

You will need to allow plenty of time, we would suggest about 6 hours to do justice to this amazing castle. We only had three hours which was not enough. Lots to see and you can take a break and enjoy beverages and delicous cakes. Very interesting exhibitions and great value for money. Very interactive and child friendly. Highly recomended... More

Visitors to Norwich may be put off nipping into the Castle due to ticket prices, which in my opinion are restrictive for visiting families, but you can go into the cafe for a nibble and drink without buying a ticket, just ask at the desk and then for the last hour of opening, you can pay a £1.00 each for...
