Great place to go and good value for money. Lots of interesting facts and things to see. Some interactive acts and actions to take part in. A huge tour that could take an age if you were really wanting to get your moneys worth.

We were soo looking forward to our medieval banquet experience that certainly didn't disappoint, in fact the whole event was quite amazing. The sheriff ( Adam) kindly posed for photos along with the jester and music maker, we were entertained the whole evening . Role play in the court room had us in stitches, there was music, merriment and a... More

I found this museum fascinating when I first visited a few years ago and the second visit did not disappoint. The actual building is well presented with informative display boards that bring home to you society's abiding tendency to criminalise poverty. The costumed guides add some colour and humour to the tour. When we emerged after 1.5 hours we could... More

We recently had our works Christmas party at the Galleries of justice on the Murder mystery evening. I would just like to thank the staff for an enjoyable evening. The murder mystery started in the court room where the scene was set for the evening. As we made our way around the galleries the actors we met played fantastic roles... More

The lady that took us around the galleries was brilliant she really got into character and made it really interesting. Nottingham Castle needs to take... More

Scary place as you sence people are watching you & you have goosebumps. There is a cold airy feeling about the place that sets your nerves on edge. If you are into the paranormal (ghosts) and up to looking around the place on a tour this place is for you. We are also going to visit when they have a... More
