Visit the historic Nottingham Castle

Nottingham, Nottinghamshire

Nottingham’s magnificent 17th century ducal mansion is built on the site of the original Medieval Castle, overlooking the whole of the city.


The Castle is now home to the city's main museum and art gallery, and attracts over a quarter of a million visitors a year.

Whilst the original castle was demolished in the 17th century, the prospect house that remains is as precious as any historic structure in the country and unique and enchanting in its own right.  The building is protected by Grade One listed status whilst within the cave system, an ancient monument can be found.

In addition to an interesting and diverse range of permanent collections – from ceramics, glass, silver and jewellery in the decorative arts, 15 centuries of Nottingham in the historical displays to a Family Gallery for the younger visitors - the Castle hosts an exciting temporary exhibition programme featuring paintings, photography, textiles, installations and sculpture from internationally-renowned exhibitions to home-grown talents.
