Historic site at the heart of the Robin Hood legend and starting point for the English Civil War
Situated on a high rock, Nottingham Castle commands spectacular views over the city and once rivalled the great castles of Windsor and the Tower of London.
Its history is chequered with sieges, murders and intrigue. Totally destroyed after the Civil War, the medieval castle was replaced by a magnificent ducal mansion in 1674. Then in 1875 it was converted into the first municipal museum and art gallery outside London. Award-winning cave tours tell this history and take you down into the passageways and tunnels beneath the building.
Museum and Gardens
The museum, recently refurbished, now contains spectacular fine and decorative arts galleries, as well as galleries telling the story of Nottingham, the Sherwood Foresters Regimental Museum and an exciting programme of art exhibitions. The museum also has a shop, a cafe and a medieval playground within its grounds.
Whilst on your visit you can also enjoy the six acres of Victorian inspired grounds and gardens. The grounds boast magnificent views of the city and beyond. The Castle Green, with its medieval style playground and covered picnic area, provides the ideal spot for a family day out.
