“quirky unexpected fun”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Norwich castle is not your average castle visit. it offers fun to the young ones as well as unexpected quirky rich exhibits for the adults. And very often special animations of all kinds.
Don't hesitate to visit.

“Never too young or too old!”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

I just love the Castle and museum. I took my children there 30 years ago and now I take my grandchild who is only 2 years old. The standard of the exhibits is excellent, the exhibitions are always interesting and the food in the cafe is good too!

“Interesting”
Reviewed May 27, 2014 via mobile

Was recommended to go here and was not disappointed.

Plenty of things to see, the dungeon tour was worth the extra.

Would definitely recommend to anyone.

“family trip”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

Although its Victorian stone cladded outside does not really do it justice inside is wonderful and they do have great new exibits. we like to nip in for the last hour of opening it only costs £1 and you can see quite a lot with fast moving 3 and 6 years old!
