Amazing! The walk around the castle walls and up the tower are a must. The view was fantastic and we even saw the resident red arrows flying over. You will learn about the manga carta! Brilliant

Was able to visit the castle museum and art gallery during a recent trip to Nottingham. Spent nearly 4 hours there including a visit to the shop and café (excellent coconut and cherry cake). Well worth the reasonable entrance fee.
