A magnificent 17th century ducal mansion built on the site of the original Medieval Castle. The Castle has a turbulent past, linked to kings and conquerors and still has a maze of original caves hidden beneath its imposing walls.Now the building houses a Museum & Art Gallery, offering visitors an opportunity to see the best regional, national and international art in the regularly changing exhibition galleries. Plus the permanent exhibitions showcase costume and textiles, silverware, glass and a glimpse into Nottingham's history.

This was rather disappointing as I really thought we were going to a castle. I think it should be renamed even if it used to be one!

It doesn't look like a traditional castle and has a very chequered history. There is something for all - very interesting exhibits and the current Reportrait exhibition is well worth visiting. The regimental museum is small but informative.

The museum itself was interesting but easy to get lost in and we realised when we left, that there was a Robin Hood themed room there that we didn't see, I think it was downstairs, which would have been of most interest to us. The...More

The place is full of charming nooks and crannies to explore. It was kept well with flower beds and the points of interest within the ground appeared to be maintained well. There were benches placed throughout the grounds if you need to sit down. There...More

I liked the cave tour at Nottingham Castle because of the tour guide and the whole experience in total. There you have the caves and the guide tells you stories that happened there, but you just get to see the caves. City of... More
