If you have an hour to spare whilst in Norwich this is time well spent here. An interesting look back at the castle keep with lots of artefacts on display and excellent exhibits with informative narratives. Lots to see in the new sections too. Could do with more informed staf around though.

It was two months ago when I had the pleasure of spending an evening in the Castle Keep in Norwich. And it was free - but you'll have to pay!!! A friend has his Christmas bash in a historic building each year, and it was a pleasure to be eating crab claws and imbibing red wine amongst fascinating exhibits, and... More

Despite a heavy price tag (£8.50 per head without discounts), this is a very impressive building and the history of Norwich and surrounding area is told through activities, displays, films, guides and reconstructions. The great hall is amazing in detail and scale, while the galleries reveal much of our British heritage. It was good to see several school groups carrying... More

The upper floor takes the form of a balcony off which there are several interesting niches one of which is a set up as a privvy, no doubt to the amusement of younger visitors. Another is the 'Bigod Arch', which at one time was the main entrance to the castle keep. It features carving including hunting scenes. A room off... More

We enjoyed visiting this historic site as there is so much to see and do, especially for children and adults alike, many artefacts to discover when looking round, such a lot to see and well worth the money, a must in Norwich

Our first visit to the keep and very pleasantly surprised at the standard of the displays. The art galleries in particular were outstanding. Just a pity staff and parents think it is acceptable for young children to shout and scream in an art gallery. Plenty to see and do for s couple of hours at least.

Visited a little while back but didn't get time to review. Great day out, and with the improvements to the main keep and animal gallery there is so much more for families to do. Loads to see and a fantastic cafe too at really reasonable prices. Love it!

Thoroughly enjoyed the castle on our first trip to Norwich. Lots to see and experience for the young historian. Food in the cafe was lovely and service very efficient
