About the venue

Built by the Normans in the 11th Century, Norwich Castle Museum and Art Gallery is home to collections of fine art, archaeology, and natural history, as well as touring exhibitions from national galleries.

Getting There

By car: The closest car park is situated in the Castle Quarter; levels K-N offer the shortest route to Norwich Castle. Apologies, there is currently no Blue Badge parking outside the museum while building work is being carried out. There is no other car parking available at Norwich Castle.

Train: The castle is a 10 minute walk from Norwich Train Station

Bus: There are a large number of buses which stop just outside the Castle on Castle Meadow


Step free access is via the external lift in Castle Gardens. If you prefer not to use a lift, there is alternative step free access to the Castle via Farmers’ Avenue. Visitors can bring an Essential Companion into Norwich Castle free of charge. There are large print labels in many galleries, and a magnifying glass can be provided from the main entrance desk.

  • Norfolk & Norwich Festival brings tens of thousands of people together in celebration – it has been doing this for nearly 250 years. Through our arts education work, we lead and support celebration, creativity and curiosity in communities across Norfolk.

    2021 offers hope for the creative sector, and as an arts charity, we are redoubling our efforts to share meaningful art and cultural experiences with people across Norfolk. We rely on support from our audiences, partners and supporters to continue to bring innovative and inspirational programming and commissioning to the region, and to empower those who might not otherwise have access to the life-changing power of the arts. Find out more about how you can support us, as an individual or as an organisation below.
